When you get it back it will once again be a totally reliable camera, and you will be glad you sent it in.

I had an old 3mp Digital Elph go bad, out of warranty. The sensor had some kind of problem with it's attachment or something. Canon could not repair it because it was about three years old, but because it was a manufacturing defect, they sent me a refurb 10mp SD770 IS to replace it. That little camera is great.

I can figure that made up for the following out-of-warranty repair of my 20D which cost me a couple of hundred dollars for only a cracked top LCD Screen cover. (Banged it against the gearshift in my truck).  It came back all checked out, cleaned, and good as new.

So send it for service and enjoy it when it comes back in good, reliable shape.

Trying to shoot yourself doing roll-backs? Haha, but 200 bucks for top LCD ouch... I thought repairs were mroe reasonable than that. I was thinking a shutter replacement would be about 250, not a chunk of plastic for 200. Yikes

unless your camera is still in Warranty, Canon USA, in Irvine CA charges a minimum of $219.00, they call it Out Of Warranty labor charge, plus shipping, about $15.00.
That charge though includes checking out the camera's functionality, cleaning and resetting to factory specs. If any additional parts are required for repairs, these will be added after you have OK'd them.
My 1DS MKII required a new shutter assembly, failed after about 212000 actuations, total cost to me was around $500, still cheaper than a replacement body!
5D MKII, 1DS MKII, 100-400 f4.5-5.6L, 70-200 f2.8L, 100 f2.8L Macro, 17-35 f2.8L, 24-70 f2.8L, 24-105 f4L, 40 f2.8, 530EX II, Benro c/f tri and mono pods, Manfrotto heads,
