Yes this the case. Not a resonable price!! But Life!!
If your going to have it repaired send it in to Sony. I sent in a camera to Sony, the phone estimate was $210. When I got the camera back the charge was $123. So
I guess I was lucky. John
We received a Sony DCR-HC30 as a wedding gift about a year ago and now it is having some problems. I took it to a local repair shop and they told me it needed a new switch block. The cost of repair is estimated between $245-$275!! I was shocked and now I do not know what to do. Any suggestions? Do I spend that much money to get this fixed? Is that a reasonable price? Thanks for your help.
