Sony HDR-FX1 firewire port repair

UPDATE: This part # is A-1073-874-A FP-964 BOARD, COMPLETE and can be bought online for about $40. Thanks to Highlight0427 for finding it.

My camera became difficult to connect to my PC, you could wiggle the cable sometimes, it got errors, and then stopped altogether. The connector would scratch and click when you plugged in the cord. RULE 1, use a cord that isn't tight or difficult to insert, and don't put pressure on the cable while inserted, I learned this the hard way. I was able to determine the port was the problem, but was apprehensive about attempting a repair on such an investment. My mind was changed when I looked and Sony's repair cost started at $500+.

This camera is about 2 years old, with maybe 20 hours of use and maybe 2 dozen connections with the pc. I am really disturbed at how cheap the firewire port is on a camera that cost several thousand dollars. Plus I wanted to connect a hard drive for direct recording, can't imagine doing that now.

I searched for a replacement part. www.partstore.com has 663 parts for this camera, and prices look reasonable, but there are no photos or clear descriptions. If you know this part(number), please comment and I will place it on here for others (as well as buy one). I purchased a new firewire port from www.mouser.com for under $3. You have to love a company that will let you buy 3 or 3,000. The part number is 154-AVR20-E, it is slightly larger and requires some modification, but the pin outs match perfectly. You have to have soldering skills to replace it, the work area is very small. This video is primarily to show how to get to the connector, not the repair of it. I also show how you can reinforce it so it will be stronger. This camera is an HDR-FX1, but I'm sure others with the same camera body are the same.

I am usually lazy when it comes to an ESD strap. Here I didn't want to take any chances, so if you don't have one, I demonstrate how to make one. For it to work your home electrical must be properly grounded. If you don't know what ESD is then stop here and DON'T TAKE YOUR CAMERA APART!

I am not a professional repairman, attempting what is shown on this video will void your warranty and could destroy your expensive camera, doing so is at your own risk.
