What are you doing with old camera bodies that don’t work?

When you have a camera body that no longer doesn’t work and you can’t sell it. Are there any options or what are you doing with it?

I have kept all my old filmers and display them in a case. (They all still work) I guess you're referring to digital bodies? Maybe donate it, just make sure the donee understands it needs repair. Other than that I'm clueless. I've always shot a Nikon and never had one that stops "working"....

Why so serious?

Over the years, I was given used cameras that I accepted
only to pass them on to repair technicians… made them
very happy.  :P

Light is free… capturing it is not!

I only have one old body that won't work, and I do the best I can with that.

Cameras, I only have one. I have too much clutter as it is, and I'm trying to get rid of stuff that serves no real purpose.

I've only had one and I gave it to my daughter and she pretended to take photos with it.
