It seems like the Western countries gave up on repairing things a few decades ago so if any little thing goes wrong the item is trash.

You might be able to find a mainboard on ebay or something:

(looks like a used or refurbished part)

and do it yourself sometimes with electronics it is just a bad connection or dirt so if the camera is trash anyway it does not hurt to pull it apart.

But if the main board is $230 and labor probably the same it does not make much since when you can buy new for 500 and a used one for less

Yes, buying a used circuit board from an unknown source (with poor feedback) on ebay and disassembling your camera to install it yourself should certainly work out well.:-D

Given that the cost of the repair is likely to approximate the cost of a new camera, toss it. That's what I did with an 18-105 Sony lens that would have cost $500 to repair and a little bit more to buy new.
