Replacement XLR socket on the HD110

Hi guys

Does anyone know where you can buy a replacement XLR socket on the HD110? Looking at the construction they are designed to be changed out with the two fixing screws either side!?

Cheers
Mat

Yeah I've checked that out and they might well be the right part. On closer inspection it does look like the body would need to be opened up to replace the part.....bugger! Anyone replaced one before on this cam?

I've just looked at my 201E XLR inputs and fear you're right Mat. They've been mounted inside the chassis. What happened to your XLR socket? I've never known a chassis mounted one to fail, the camera might be damaged by it but the XLR socket is very tough.

I've changed my camera mic and fitted it and a radio mic cable with the new slim right angled XLR plugs, I felt that the original mic's straight XLR plug protruded too much and was a possible danger to the camera, a cable could be snagged on, say, a door handle, Or if knocked hard enough, it could damage the camera chassis. The Sony DSR 500 had a fragile twin XLR "box" on the back of the camera, in fact it wasn't a separate box at all, just a moulded part of the camera chassis, once broken (if you were moving a cabled camera forward and some clot stood on an audio cable it ripped the back off and the camera was basically for the bin.
