Sony Mavica Repair Service


How much will it cost to repair my Mavica?   ^ Top

That depends a lot on how far off the floor it fell, whether it was concrete or carpet, and whether it sunk to the bottom of the swamp, or just got splashed.

Once your unit is on the bench, we'll be able to determine just that, and contact you with all of the costs involved, before any work is performed, and how long your unit's stay with us will be.

We do all we can to make the repair process painless as possible.

Floppy Disk Mavica's:

If your camera is displaying Disk Error, C:13:01, C:32:01, and you've tried to format a new disk (using your computer, w/ FULL format option) with no success, then your cameras' drive will need to be repaired, rebuilt or replaced.

CD Mavica's:

If your camera is displaying Disk Error, C:13:01, or you hear a clicking sound, and have tried a new CD-R disk with no success, then, more than likely, the drive assembly needs to be repaired, rebuilt or replaced.. For repair or rebuild, expect to pay major labor.

Once your camera is on the bench, we'll be able to determine if we can repair or rebuild your camera's drive. New parts aren't available any longer, so it possible that your camera will be unrepairable. We'll let you know if we can help you and provide you with all the costs up front, before any work is performed.


My camera got wet, can you fix it?

For cameras or camcorders damaged by liquid or water, the estimate fee is $50.00, and is applied to the cost of repair.

If your unit got wet, remove the battery and DON'T turn it on!.

The longer your camera or camcorder stays under water, the worse it gets. The one factor you have control over is time - how fast you can get the camera to our repair facility - because it's time that is the real killer. Once water (salt water is worse yet) gets inside, corrosion begins to form quickly. Even if you use a blow dryer, you can't get it all out. If you wait too long, no amount of cleaning or labor will be able to restore it. That's why it needs to get here fast - that give you the best chance to get your unit restored.

Lost Videos & Pictures
It's recommended to download the pictures and videos from your camera as often as possible. However, sometimes it just happens - an accident - and now your precious memories are in jeopardy. The faster that camera gets here, the better the chance that we can either fix your camera, retrieve the files, or both. Our success rate is about 70%. We'll try our very best to get your precious memories back.


Do you repair Still Cameras & Digital SLR Cameras?  ^ Top

Wont it cost a lot to ship my Mavica to you?
  ^ Top

The average cost of shipping a camera to us is about $15 - $20, depending on the weight. Leave out the battery and charger, unless they are part of the problem. If the package is 2 lbs or less, then use the Post Office. Use UPS if the weight is 3 lbs or more.



How much do you charge for estimates?

The only time we charge you a modest $30 estimate fee is if you do NOT have your unit repaired. If you do decide to get your unit fixed, this fee is waived! If you paid this fee up front - we just take it off at the end.

You don't have to pay this fee up front - but you can send a check along with your unit and we'll gladly accept it.


How much do you charge for return shipping?

We don't markup shipping charges. Average cost of shipping is between $15 - $20.


What kind of turn-a-round time do you have?   ^ Top

Once your unit arrives at our repair facility, we'll send you an email to let you know that it has arrived safely. Then, within just a couple business days, it's on the bench and we'll contact you once again with what we've found with the cost of repair.
