I feel your pain. I've been an electronics technician for 25 yrs and they really don't make equipment to last anymore. The cost of repairing a machine can be more than the cost of replacing it. Take the simple task of replacing the ink cartridges on your home printer; $30-$45 per cart or a new printer for $49.99. Troubleshooting can be very frustrating as the fault could be on one of several pricey boards: individual parts are rarely available. It seems planned obsolescence is the manufacturers best marketing campaign.
