Question about Canon ES60 Hi-8 Analog Camcorder
My cat knocked it over and now I can't see anything through the viewer. If I connected to a TV I can see it's recording fine. If I move the viewer I can sometimes see what I'm recording but then if it moves I lose it again. I'm assuming I'll need to get it fixed however, would like an idea of how much it should cost and what part I would need. I went to one repair shop and the guy told me it would cost over $200.00 and I would have to send it away. Help!
You never know what it will cost till you take it apart and most peeps do send them to the manufacturer so cut out the middle man thats gonna add on a shipping and handling fee + who knows what else. Call canon at 1 800 828-4040 good Luck.

There is a small circuit board located in the adjustable viewfinder. A 4 pin connector with a small ribbon cord is plugged into this circuit board. Your problem is that after many hours of adjusting the view the circuit board ribbon connector has come loose for the board or one of the 4 surface mount connectors are loose.

Tips for a great answer:
Sounds like a sensor problem - which happened recently to one of my own video cameras Called Sony, and they are replacing the lens and sensors and refurbishing the camera to like-new condition. Here is the number as listed on the Sony website: Priority Service Line (for U.S. only): 239-768-7547. Once through the maze of recorded menu options, and you get to Camcorder Repair service department, they will help you very efficiently. Hope this helps.
