Re: Sony EX1 Powering on/off repair suggestions

Mine gets quite hot in continuous use, but have never seen this happen (it has been very lightly used over the years). I wonder if yours could be overheating and setting off a sensor, causing a shutdown? Could this be as simple as cleaning out the vents towards the back? Is there a fan inside there (don't know)?

Sorry, no idea about repairs.

It looks to be a known issue...hopefully someone will be able to recomend a good UK repair place.....

EX1s were renowned for on/off switch failures after a period of time. Here is a strip down and replace switch video for the EX1 if you feel up to it.
