Thanks for your reply to my question on
PECHORIN'S audio and video equipment discussion forum.
The LCD and lens assembly seems to be fine, though it's hard to tell
as it has not be disassembled just yet, though i am thinking of doing this shortly,as i'm getting really desperate right now.
I had a few quotes from camera shops to have it repaired, but i'm looking around
5 to 800 Australian dollars to have it fixed, i'm sure with some help like people from yourself
and others on forums, i might be able to solve this problem myself.
Well i just like to thank you for your help, and will look in depth into the solutions that you
mentioned, i really appreciate your help, thanks a million Sivaram.
