42S - Won't turn on



#2

I have had the same 42S since 1994 and the other day it wouldn't turn on. I replaced the battery and it still doesn't work.

I'm just looking for some advice...

1) Should I send it out somewhere to have it examined and possibly fixed? If so, where would you reccommend?

2) Should I just purchase a used one? If so, is there anywhere other than ebay to find them, and is $300 too much to pay? It seems like it to me, but I'm guessing these are collectors items or something by now.

Thank you for your time.
