    Default HELP!Where is the best place to get a videocamera fixed?

    This is in addition to my thread about the problem I have with my Sony Z1e.


    Phoned around 30 numbers this morning to try and find somebody to fix the loose firewire hvd/dv port in my camera.

    Most wont touch it and the one that will want between 160-200 quid to do what seems to me a lot for a simple job.


    In peoples experience were is the best place to send your camera to get it fixed or is DIY an option.

    The reason I ask is I seem to be spending more out on my camera at the moment than its bringing in.

    The Z1 is a complex piece of kit - 200 sounds reasonable to me - what appears to be a simple job will almost certainly (knowing the way a Z1 is put together) require a shed load of time dismantling - let alone the repair and putting back together. Sony have a lovely habit of making cameras that need panels a,b,d,and z removing before panel c can be opened....

    Yes I noticed how many diferent parts were on the camera when I tried to take it apart but had second thoughts.

    Could you recomend a good company to try and fix it?

    Thanks

    I'm afraid not - but I wouldn't trust these firms that promise free collection and return to every damn make, model and in every city - you may never see your camera again. (Until it appears on eBay).

    Not the same model, but may be of interest
