    I would love to, but right now, I'm wondering if I need to beat the crap outta my son or if the camera just f!@#ed up on it's own, plus, I just spent a little more than $2000.00 on tools and equipment for my knifemaking hobby....so , as much as I would love new dslr...not in the cards financially right now.

    quite possibly the rubber connector thingy on the lcd might have moved :dunno:

    it happened to my 1st digicam back in 1998, never dropped it or anything

    so you can't see the lcd and it won't take any pictures? plugging it in to the computer while it is turned on won't do anything like that...sounds like a job for a professional.

If so....how much???
