Hello.

Any help at all will be greatly appreciated

Sorry to keep going on about 10 year old cameras but it still gives a pretty decent picture and I like it

I have the dodgy viewfinder problem along with playback transport control problems. THe repair centre told me they would have to send it back to sony which would cost £300-£400. As this is nearly as much as the camera is worth I've decided to try and fix it myself.

The part I've found is '165640013' PC BOARD, FP-217 (viewfinder ribbon) for $55 from http://servicesales....m/web/index.jsp

Is this what I need? Will it work for the PAL model? And more importantly is it something I can easily do myself?

I've decided to only try and fix the viewfinder (It works in the lock position until I move it up).

I'm going to leave the transport block as I can still control the deck with the remote.

Is there an engineers manual anywhere to download?

i tried the links on www.skateperception.com but they are now mostly down

Many thanks,

Grant
