Hi. My name is*****'m a camera repair technician with almost 30 years in the business and I'll be glad to help you with your question today.

Repair costs vary from shop to shop and are usually most expensive when done by the factory. However, the part is widely available from China and a few other countries and with a few phone calls and a little shopping, you should be able to find a good low cost repair shop to replace the screen for you.

Please provide a positive Rating so that I may be credited for my efforts.
If I can be of further assistance, please ask rather than leave a negative response.

Thank You

Rick
