    Do any of the manufacturers sell service manuals to the public?

    I bought a service manual for my Olympus C-2020Z a few years ago. I recently
    called Olympus parts to ask about the availability of a manual for the D-40,
    and was told that they don't sell service manuals, period.

    What manufacturers do you know of that sell service manuals for digital
    (still) cameras?

    Thanks,

    Please, no "Go Google this" replies. I wouldn't
    ask a question here if I hadn't done that already.

    Very few of the camera and computer product manufactures sell service
    manuals to non contracted service people that they approve. They make
    their policy very tight for this. A contractor will not risk loosing
    their business to sell a service manual. These manufactures will also
    not sell any service parts to non authorised contractors.

    You were very lucky at the time to be able to buy a service manual.

    As for your camera, these are serviced at the modular level.
    Adjustments are done from an external interface, with the proper test
    setup.

    Unless you have a very expensive digital camera, it may not pay to have
    it serviced when out of warranty.

    For consumer home entertainment equipment, most of the manufactures
    will sell service manuals, and service parts. But, there are a few that
    will not.
