Digital Camera Troubleshooting: Finding the Right Repair Center
Unfortunately, finding the right repair center might be part of your digital camera troubleshooting. If you are unable to repair your digital camera on your own, you will have to get it repaired. It can be time consuming if you have to compare a few different digital camera repair centers, but it is a must if you want to get your digital camera repaired properly.
Authorized Repair Centers
Before you start looking for repair centers on your own, contact the tech support for the manufacturer of your camera to see if there are any authorized repair centers in your area. Authorized digital camera repair centers will have a working relationship with your camera's manufacturer, so you know your digital camera will be in good hands. You may not be able to find a local digital camera repair center, but there is nothing wrong with having to mail your camera to a well known repair center.
When you are comparing different digital camera repair centers, ask if they belong to any camera related professional organizations. If they don't, they should at least belong to the Better Business Bureau. You should also ask the repair center to provide you with past customer references or testimonials.
You would get an estimate if you were getting your car repaired, right? When you are getting your digital camera repaired, you should get estimates, too. You will want to get a cost estimate and a time estimate. Some repair centers will also have miscellaneous fees, so be sure to ask about that before deciding on a digital camera repair center.
