replacing K-7 main PCB

Precision Camera via Pentax(where they sent it), has quoted me 410.00 for repacement of PCB and return to factory settings. I feel this is way high. Any thoughts or suggestions from members?

Not sure where you are located but for a little more you can buy a K-5. A used K-7 I have seen going for around $350.
I say sell it for parts and invest in another body.

I second that, no point in wasting money on fixing a camera for more than it's worth.

Sounds steep. C.R.I.S. charged me $300.00 about a year ago for that service.
