There are loads of new-unsold P74 and P75s out there - the 4 and 5 megapixel versions of your beloved. They're exactly the same casing and adaptor ring, in case you bought extra lenses. Consider one of those?

When I was younger, I worked in a camera shop. I still don't know a lot about cameras, except that the people that brought them in for repair typically had more money than sense. Camera repair prices cost progressively higher with the complexity of the camera - now, I was working there during the handover from 35mm to APC on compact cameras. Any electronics doubled the price of even looking. Any damage to the electronics cost the price of a new camera to repair. I doubt it's any different today.
