Sony PD150 UK repair companies

Hi guys,

Have a problem with constant pixel break up on my PD150, have been quoted 340 for a repair but I have only checked one company.

Does anyone know of any good affordable repair places in the UK?

Thanks

I suggest getting in touch with Sony direct.

Some of the Pd150's had some faulty CCD's. On mine I kept getting vertical red lines that would move around and gradually got worse. I know it's not the same problem, but it could be related.

Anyway as it was a manufacturing problem I got mine fixed free of charge by Sony.

unfortunately mine is out of guarantee.

I have now sent the camera away to a different company and been quoted almost 600 for a drum replacement. This seems very steep to me. They also said the parts alone on the mic holder which was loose would cost 77... If I use this as a guide I am quite worried about their pricing...

If anyone has any idea who else I can contact I would be very greatful!

David, I think this could be the recognised Sony CCD problem you're seeing. If that's the case Sony will fix it FOC.
