My Canon SD870IS - repair or not repair
Mar 4, 2011

Here is a story of my SD-870IS camera:

purchased on March 13th, 2008 for $283.00
repaired under warranty on Jan 14, 2009 for "some errors with memory card"

repaired again for $130: May 18th 2009 for "Spot showing up on images. Possible debris inside lens or on image sensor."

Now, the camera has these problems:

  • dust spots inside lens

  • LCD backlight does not work (after dropping the camera)

  • one of the outer lens shutter curtains is broken

Camera can still take good pictures despite all of the above, except that you cannot see them on the LCD. Would you recommend spending $130 on repairing the camera?
