Digital Camera Repairs
I have a Sanyo Xacti camera that has been loaned out and returned damaged. Can anyone suggest the best place to send it for repair. Preferably somewhere that will provide a free estimate.

Here are some details. I use Lehman and am pleased with their service.

Me too. I now have both our Canon digital SLR cameras out of action - one has some dust in the lense and, as of half an hour ago, a bent pin in the CF-card reader port, and the other is giving "err 99 - shooting is not possible" and freezing up whenever we press the shutter button. Do I take them to the nearest Jessops or other camera shop (probably Farnham or Woking), or can anyone recommend somewhere to post them off to?

Give the guys at Lehman a call, I'm not sure if they do SLRs but I would imagine so. It's pretty much the same technology. I'd give Jessops a miss. If for no other reason than they could go belly-up at any moment so I'm told!

With the "Err 99" camera - some Canons are known to have a shutter prob after 15-20k activations - best to talk to Canon Service. Have you tried taking the backup battery out for 30 minutes to reset it?

Lehmanns in Stoke-on-Trent are authorised Canon repairers, they will also look at other makes too, including Nikon and Sanyo, I believe. They did provide us with an estimate of repair costs to a Nikon compact a couple of years ago.
They will do SLRs too.

I've tried leaving the main battery out for a day, I didn't know there was a backup battery - I'll check. Googling around a bit, I see that I should maybe disconnect the lense for a bit, too.
