How Much do Pawn Shops Pay for Broken Digital Cameras?

Not every pawn shop will pay for broken digital cameras.

You might find one that is willing to put the work in to get the camera fixed, if it is of high enough value and worth it to the pawn broker. It all really comes down to whether or not they believe the money they need to invest to get it fixed will pay off in a positive return on investment. If they don’t think it’s worth it, they likely won’t buy it from you to resell it.

The easiest way to know for sure if and how much pawn shops pay for broken digital cameras in your area is by using PawnGuru. We allow you to list your broken digital camera on our site so that your local pawn shops can express interest and make an offer (if there is one to be made).

What if No Pawn Shops Will Take my Broken Digital Camera?

A quick Google search should do the trick for you in this case, to find a local facility.
