    Ok a few years ago I bought a Olympus Camedia C-2100 Here is a review and picture

    About 6 months ago it just stopped working. LCD dont light up and only get battery info on the top little lcd.

    I have been thinking about sending it in to be repaired only I am afraid that it could far out price what a new one would cost.

    Ok after searching around I have read a few reports of them having a faulty power circuit board that can cost over $240 to replace..

    I have been using my Nikon but I miss the zoom feature...

    I think I am going to box it up tonight unless someone says I can get a better camera for about the same price. I have not shopped around much in the last year.

    Saw this Baby though

    yeah ask them for a quote first and if its a minor problem and worthwhile to continue, then proceed with repair...

    otherwise, this could be a good time to invest in a newer camera

    Might want to look at the Canon Digital Rebel if you are going to pay around $1000. It is compatible with the Hitachi Microdrives which are lower in cost than the flashcards. 1Gb cost $150.00
