I just got the estimate to repair my 4 1/2 yr old 20D. $311 with shipping. It kept getting ERR99. Sometimes taking a shot, sometimes not. No clue what happened. I didn't drop it or otherwise damage it for something to happen. Funny thing is, though, when I called to ask what exactly was wrong with it, they couldn't tell me. They just charge a minimum labor fee of $290 to open it up and fix. She said it was based on the model and age of the body. I asked how they know what amount or kind of parts will be needed. They said, "Oh, if they find out the repair will cost more, they will contact you so you can pay." How do I make a decision about having it fixed if I don't really know how much it will be? She said they would credit back the $311 if I decided not to go through with a costlier repair. Okay.....

What do you all think? Is $311 (total with shipping) worth fixing a 4 1/2 yr old 20D with over 50K actuations? I don't have the extra cash right now but hey give you 45 days to pay before returning unrepaired.

Bad place to be. It's dependent on your budget. If it's tight, get the camera fixed. Or, use the repair amount toward getting a new/referb/ used replacement.

In lieu of repair, they offer 'Loyal Customers' a refurbished 50D body for $629 or 50D with 28-135 lens (also refurb) for $759. Money's tight so, if anything, I would go with the repair...

I like it, too. Now I need to go find some cash!!:grin:

I already have a 28-135 USM and a 70-200 2.8 IS USM. My lenses and the 50D would get along nicely...

I was having Err99 problems with my 2.5 year old 40D. The repair cost was $214. I just got conformation that the repairs are complete. Just waiting for the repaired camera to be returned. I too was offered the option of a 50D upgrade for $629. Normally I would have jumped on that! But, since I just bought the Canon 100-400mm L I decided that a 50D wasn't in the budget.............

Canon 10-22mm - my camera fell off a table at a wedding and the lens broke into two pieces... the mount stayed on the body while the rest roll along the floor (picture something looking like a slinky). Cost was about $100 from Canon to fix. :)

Canon 30D (a few weeks old), scratched the sensor by trying to clean it myself. $300 to replace.

Anyone got an idea how much it would cost them to inspect/replace weather sealing on a 1D? What about a USM replacement on a 70-200mm?

One year after I bought my 40D I got the error99. I sent it in and they replaced it with a new 50D for $200 (the price difference between 40D and 50D at the time) since the 40D was no longer produced. One year after the new 50D and I got error80. It's currently in for repair. Thank god I have a new 50D as a backup, and thank god they both have 3 year extended warrenties!

Recalibrate 5D lensmount on 5D classic on warranty- N/C
Rebuild and completely replace FBI internal mechanical mechanism in a 70-200 2.8 IS under warranty N/C
Calibrate 16-35 II under warranty- N/C
Calibrate 35 1.4 under warranty - N/C
Calibrate 2x Tele Extender under warranty N/C
Estimate on cleaning sensor on G11 out of warranty $195.00.
I think most of the warranty repairs were done near the ends of the warranty except the 35 and 16-35 and all the work was done really well.

+1

I need to know how much it would cost to repair a 70-200 f4L non-IS too.

I cannot focus to closer than ~1.7m, the focus get stuck and I have to turn it sharply to unstuck it from the 1.2m - 1.7m meter range.
Focusing slowly is not possible either, I have to turn the focus ring with some speed.

Did a repair request online and it says 260$ to start with? is this how much it costs?
