WHY CHOOSE A PROFESSIONAL TO REPAIR YOUR CAMERA?
Choosing a professional to repair your camera is a smart choice for a variety of reasons. An expert camera repair technician will know your machine better than you do and be able to get the hard to find parts needed easily (and cheaper).
The biggest reason why you should ONLY repair your camera with a trained professional is to preserve its safety and longevity. With periodic maintenance and repairs, a well-made camera can last for many years.
You could try and fix the camera yourself or let a friend try and fix it. However, the inner workings of a camera are delicate and intricate. Choosing a top-rated New York camera repair company is always a smarter and safer choice for your expensive camera.
HOW TO CHOOSE A CAMERA REPAIR COMPANY?
Choosing the right camera repair company is more important than you may think. Dropping your camera off with just any repair shop may lead to problems down the road, such as voiding the warranty. There are hundreds of brands and types of cameras out there -- and we have seen them all!
When choosing a camera repair company, it is important to ensure that they specialize in your specific make and model. Also, we suggest reading reviews of the business to minimize the chances for potential problems.
42nd Street Photo has thousands of five-star reviews from satisfied customers and enjoys an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
COMMON CAMERA PROBLEMS NEEDING PROFESSIONAL ATTENTION
Camera Sensor Cleaning
When shooting pictures, you may see spots show up in the same places on photos. This is a common problem that happens when dust is stuck on the camera sensor. If you notice this is happening, it is time for a sensor cleaning. With the right tools and a steady hand, if done by an experienced camera repair professional, this job is easy and fast.
DSLR Camera Lens Calibration
As you use your camera more, it is natural that your camera will experience wear and tear. As a result, the autofocus can slowly change, resulting in difficulty with the focus. When this happens, a trained professional can quickly calibrate by adjusting the lens calculations.
Camera LCD Repair or Digital Camera LCD Repair
Cracks, hot pixels, not turning on, shutting off suddenly... there are many reasons why you may need to have your LCD screen repaired. Over time and with extended use of your camera, you may need to have a professional remove and then replace the screen with a special adhesive according to the manufacturer's recommendations and make the necessary fixes.
Camera Shutter Replacement
One of the most important parts of a camera is the shutter. Depending on how much you use your machine, a camera shutter will last at least a few years. A camera repair expert can repair or replace the shutter with extreme care. Every piece must be placed carefully back in the original location to ensure the camera works better than before.
Even if you are not taking your camera out to the desert or up a steep mountain, dust and dirt will quickly build up on and in your camera, affecting how your machine functions. For your camera to function optimally, it is advisable to clean it professionally a few times a year. We also suggest regularly, once a week or so, cleaning the lens yourself.
Repair Camera from Sand or Water Damage
We all love to go to the pool or beach for that perfect Instagram-ready snapshot. The only problem? Water and sand are like kryptonite for a camera. If your camera had some unexpected sand or water damage, a trained camera repair professional can assess the problem and restore the camera to like-new condition, replacing any parts needed.
Repair Impact Damage to Cameras
Depending on the extent of the damage done to the camera, a camera repair expert will be able to repair or replace impacted parts. The camera needs to be examined fully to see if there is any hidden damage.
