I have a Sony DSLR which I bought in the US. Because I used it to take many of the photos of building our house, dust managed to work its way inside the camera. Foolishly, I thought I could clean it myself. In the end I felt very happy that I was able to get the camera back together but it was dirtier and smudged with my finger prints. Also I managed to scratch the internal focusing screen. Thinking that I had ruined my camera, I decided to take it to the local Sony repair station. It was long out of warranty.
The Sony Service Center is just off Diversion Road, immediately across from Nes and Tats Restaurant. Phone (033) 321-1104. I was not sure they would even be able to repair a DSLR but I was happy to learn that they would ship it to Manila for repair. A couple of weeks later my camera arrived back in Iloilo. It was like new! The repair fee which included cleaning and replacement of the focusing screen was less than P1,300 plus P900 for shipping. The whole experience was a good one and Sony gets a big gold star from me for having such efficient and affordable service, even in the provinces.
