Unhappy Camera Repair Estimates

Well, itís the standard story: my camera took a trip to the pavement yesterday. In the grandest of ironies, it was well I was standing still (considering some of the things Iíve done while holding it, i.e. sprinting, hurdling, etc.). So, the mirror appears to be out of alignment and the camera doesnít turn on anymore. When I put batteries in, the mirror goes up and down rapidly for about ten seconds before stopping.

So, my question isÖanyone have a similar experiences and how much did they cost to repair? Iím mostly interested in the repair cost, as it will be my deciding factor as to whether or no I repair this one or buy a new one. Even vaguely similar situations and different manufacturers would be helpful to me. All the person on the phone could tell me was "over $100."
