Ooops-dropped DMC-TZ1 -- Worth trying to fix?

    I dropped my Panasonic DMC-TZ1 camera on concrete and now it makes a
    horrible noise when it's on. Sometimes the noise (sounds like
    grinding gears) stops but the autofocus does not work. It does take
    pictures and the zoom works and video works. But everything is badly
    out of focus. I've tried all the focus modes and have turned the
    image stabilization on and off. Makes no difference.

    Is it realistic to try and get a digital camera (with these issues)
    fixed? Or is it better to just buy another one? I'd probably get the
    TZ3 model even though it can't zoom in video mode.

    I sent my TZ1 to the repair depot with the default payment (about $100).
    They fixed it and sent my check back and told me they had extended my
    warranty.

    Good Luck.
