Hi guys,

I have been lurking on this forum for a while but have hit a problem and thought maybe someone on here has experienced something similar and could advise me.

I have owned my camera for over a year and it was secondhand when i got it. Its worked great, (except for a point when it asked to be reset but wouldn't. A friend dismantled it and put it back together and it worked after that) But recently Ive hit a new problem. A few times I would turn it on and the flip out screen would be really dark as if the back light wasn't on, but the viewfinder screen would look normal. I would just turn it off and back on and it would be ok, but now the backlight remains off. Ive even tried resetting it but that didnt help.

Has anyone had a similar problem, and if not is it worth taking it to a camera repair shop or will I be paying a lot of money with no gaurantee of fixing it?

Thanks in advance for any help/advice
