TG850 black bcreen repair

My son's TG850 has developed the black screen that is commonplace from what I read on the internet; the camera still takes photos as proven by hearing a "click" on pressing the shutter button and then reading the memory card in a computer, but with a black screen there is no real control of the camera.

Is it worth repairing (likely how much in the UK?) or do I take it for electronic recycling and pass on three healthy and genuine Olympus LI-50B batteries and an aftermarket charger to a new owner?

Cheers!

Haha! As I've just gone for a 5D mk IV he's just got a half share in my 7D to supplement his 400D. What more can a ten year old boy want? :)

Hmm! If it is as likely to be a broken flex cable as I think it is, for £3.55 + £0.99 postage I might give it a go myself.
