part numbers & jack repair

You can make things easy for yourself and just order a replacement board from Sony here: http://servicesales.sel.sony.com/web/index.jsp

Over on the top right side of the page is the search area to put part number in and click the 2nd button down labeled "part or accessory number" - anyone with a credit card can order these parts.

The part number is A-7078-952-A for the JK-267 board complete. The part costs $109. Yes, pricey, but no desoldering required! If you have a good solder station with vacuum you could just order the jack itself and it's part number is 1-563-282-21. It sells for $5.57 - but keep in mind the circuit board is very thin and you really need a good solder station to remove it without damaging the board that it is mounted on.

I work on these cameras all the time - usually doing my modification for the sound and you can find more info about me here: http://www.gregjwinter.com/modification2.htm

Regards,
Greg J. Winter

Thanks Greg. And I know you do. There are times I have been very tempted to get you to mod my VX-2100. Sony may have improved the noise from the 2000, but not by much.

called sony. got their parts department phone number off their website and decribed to them what I needed. It cost like $13 which was a bargain compared to $500 repair bill. btw, if you bought the board that the jack resides on you wouldn't need to soilder although i dont know how much they would charge.

high profit margin on parts, like the headphone jack shouldn't cost more than $2 but what are you going to do?
