Anyway... when I went to connect my Z1 to the computer a few weeks ago (I left for a two-week trip to Costa Rica two days after the incident), the computer did not at all recognize that anything had been connected. I tried the computer in the next room, and the camera still went unrecognized. It wasn't until later, when I researched this problem, that I found out that firewire can damage a camera's firewire port. (http://dvinfo.net/co...ead.php?t=64873) This really puts me in a bind because a client wants me to send them some additional footage and I have no way of capturing.
Should I send the Z1 off to Sony and probably have to pay a large fee, is there a fix I can do here at home, or does the camera have to be replaced? I'm worried because the warranty has expired...

sorry to say but your controller chip is probably fried
That's what apparently has happened... and it isn't uncommon, apparently. Well, I'm not looking forward to dishing out $500-$600 for the repair, but that's life...
