Re: Buy Functioning Camera or Fix Cheap Camera?

Buy the one that works:

1) You do not know whether the bad shutter is the only problem

2) You do not know how or why the shutter broke, likely some form of abuse

3) Current cameras are built in clean rooms under carefully controlled conditions by peopel with special training in each area of assembly.  These cameras are not built to be repaired. or readjusted  Any repair of a modern electronic camera short of a Leica grade or top level pro stuff is high risk.  Even if you get a warrantee with repaired camera, you lose its use while they continue to try to fix it.
