Getting my camera repaired

    My Sony camera has failed, TRV19E, I suspect it's the optical sensor,
    Sony want the thick end of 200 quid for a fixed price repair and for
    that money I would rather buy a new camera.

    So can anyone recommend someone in either Surrey or Essex who could fix
    it for a reasonable price ?

    TIA.

    No chance of getting parts off the scrapheap? ;o)

    There's been a recall of Sony equipment recently - not sure if yours will
    apply. It's something to do with operation in low or high temperatures. The
    link I got was:
    http://phpbb.ulead.com.tw/EN/viewtopic.php?p=37893

    which includes the TRV19E but it's not on the link that Terry supplies. I'll
    ask him how he added that one to the list, but it's over a year ago.

    Got it.
    The page where you can see the CCD fault in action is:
    http://www.imaging-resource.com/NEWS/1128958202.html
    The page where you check your model is:
    http://www.css.ap.sony.com/usefulinfo/CCD Imager/Camcorder.html
    the TRV19E is under DCR-TRV. There's also a link to the support network on
    that page.
