I was speaking in general, if you can service your own equipment good for you. Modern cameras are such complex electro/mechanical devices that the average camera user is incapable of servicing them, they lack the training skill ,knowledge, tools, and test equipment and more often than not make door stops of their cameras.
I was an apprentice trained precision engineer who spent twelve years working in the aircraft industry, I have all the service manuals for my cameras, but the more I look at them, the more I realize that to service them and their electronics is beyond my tools equipment and capability because I know my limitations.
