Signet is happy to repair things for you, even the old stuff, and you can preset a spending limit so they don't go beyond what you're prepared to pay without going to new. I think they also give a decent discount if you replace your old with their new.
They are good sending parts too, I've replaced a couple of the LCD displays (on the depth meter they are plug-in, on the knotlog they must be soldered in..) A bit pricey, but available and they fit.
My only beef is that they will not provide schematics for those that may possess the skills to try DIY repairs and troubleshooting.
