broken firewire on GY201E

Hi to all, is there anyone that knows where to find a spare firewire board for my camrecorder?
I am Dutch in Macedonia and here the price is very expensive, around 500$ and need to wait 4 weeks if I order this.
So if any one knows where to find a replacement or a broken camera for spareparts

In advance thank you, Peter

Re: broken firewire on GY201E

No idea where you might find one these days, I had one replaced a few years ago by JVC in London - cost me 350UKP and they did it in 5 days. I did see some 201's with very high head hours going for 1000 complete with lens a year or so back but they've all gone now. You might do better looking for a BR-HD50 deck, I've seen several with low hours go on eBay for around 300 recently. I wish you well with your search!

Re: broken firewire on GY201E

Hi Dave thanks for the reply, I guess I was nor lucky as near to where I am a broken JVC has just been sold to another guy, it was just 200 euro.
Again my plan was to buy a HD drive recorder in order not to use tapes, and for that i also need a working firewire.
But to buy and spend so much money for a board is not worth looking at the age of my JVC although it has only 42 drum hours.
But will take a look if I can find a deck.
Again thank you!

Re: broken firewire on GY201E

I'm looking and looking but can't find any deck besides round 800-1000 euro
Maybe to find a broken JVC just for parts, can anyone give me some links where to look further?

Re: broken firewire on GY201E

I'm getting confused here.
In Skopje the importer of JVC Pro is Vision.
Got a phone call that the part, firewire board is 1000 euro...
When I read the price Dave paid, 350 BP is so much cheaper...

Re: broken firewire on GY201E

It was a 350 repair, I still have the invoice from a couple of years ago. Mine was a GY-HD100 and they fitted a new FW board with a 'protection' modification (I guess it was to stop anyone putting a 6 pin FW in the wrong way round - like I did!).

It was done by JVC Head Office London (Staples Corner), I took it in then collected it personally about 5 days later. I'm not sure they still do on-site repairs but it's worth contacting them to see - You need to search for JVC Professional - JVC Professional Europe - it's probably at least worth an email to them.

Re: broken firewire on GY201E

OK I am now even more confused as JVC is JVC right?
Could you maybe email them how much they charge for the board only, I mean the part without putting it inside?
