Repair referal 100d replace cracked lcd

LCD doesn't work. I am guessing it won't be cost effective to replace / fix. Camera is still fairly functional except I can only access the menus and review photos at home. So it will probably be relegated to back up duty whenever I upgrade.

Appreciate any suggestions. Thx

Any of the service centers that are on the Pentax website should be able to price out the repair for you if it is out of warranty. The shop I sent my camera to for hot pixel issues still has my camera though. They say repair time is anywhere from 2-4 weeks.

Where are you located?
If you live in US, you can send it to Pentax Colorado and ask for quote. Or maybe you can try to describe you problem over the phone and ask for rough estimate.
Here is their phone #1-800-877-0155

Hope this helps.

i think it would be cheaper picking up a used K100D and selling your old one for parts.

You are probably right Gooshen, does not pay to repair. It is still functional so I will probably keep to teach my kids SLR photography. Thx for the help everyone. I have seen people advertising to replace broken LCDs for other (more popular) cameras reasonably. If anyone knows of something comparable for digital pentax please post but what I am looking for probably does not exist. Thx again everyone.

Also I may take a blood pressure pill and call an authorized pentax center. I am guessing 250. I will post if anyone else wants to try to outguess me.
