HVR-Z1 Roller Part Number?

Hi, I am desperately trying to locate a part number for my Z1. I really hope someone can help me out.

Its the little plastic roller that feeds the tape - the roller itself is fine but the piece of plastic that holds it onto the spool has disappeared. I am currently holding it together with a piece of biro pen which is not ideal.

The part couldn't cost more than a few dollars / pounds so I don't want to send it in for a service and end up paying in the hundreds.

I can't seem to find it here - http://www2.sonysupport.com/PF/bc051...ws/chassis.PDF - I have already incorrectly ordered the TG3 Roller Assembly.

The problem has been discussed here - http://www.camerahacker.com/Forums/D...8_-_Error_Code. - but I am unable to locate the part number.

I would be eternally grateful to anyone who could help me out at all.

Thanks.

Re: HVR-Z1 Roller Part Number?

You can call Sony's parts department. They can identify the part you need over the phone if you talk to a tech. Btw, I once tried to fix a simple thing, a tiny screw fell into the camera and it never worked again. This time I sent it to a repair shop and they replaced the entire tape mechanism. end of story.

Some further online snooping revealed to me that the part is No 768 - http://supportdocs.sonybiz.net/PF/bc...edviews/ls.PDF
