If you check prior discussions.
The advice is to forget the repair counter. And once you get over it, you find discussions about smacking it as well as BER (beyond economical repair) and finally you read about getting the content out before it dies altogether.
i did look at the other ones
i looked at the other post and i have smacked it i took it apart and looked at it and what not everthing looks ok and i am still haveing issues i smacked it a bunch of times
There are over a 1000 posts about this one.
It appears you've done the usual so you have to decide if it's worth paying Sony for their repair or if you can get the content out, moving on to a newer model.
i did look
well i dont have the money to i was just looking to fix it to have for my self its my parents old one and i wanted my own just was thinking if there could be some odd reason the cam wount show anything
I find them with the usual search.
However I fear you've fallen for a common trap. That is, many dive in like you are forget that to fix this we need the service manual and parts. AVSFORUM for example has many folk that want to fix it themselves but the cost to set up your repair shop is more than a replacement unit.
It has come down to this. I don't want to waste your time so my advice is if you can't find the manual or prior discussions and can't figure out from that it's dead then I'll be a little more clear at the risk of offending you.
Get your content out, then replace the unit.
i still have the box
i still have the box and the manuels and all the stuff for the camera
Then you may get a few more bucks for it on ebay.
You won't be surprised how many are out there. Some cheap, some work.
