Question about Sony PCS-1 (PCS1) Video Conference
On the setup page there are 3 settings for Echo Canceller.
Does selection 3. External refer to an external Echo Canceller connected to the PCS?
Is the Internal Echo Canceller in the path between the mic and the audio input switch point? Or is the Internal Echo Canceller down stream of the Mic and Audio input ciruits?
Do you have an internal Block Diagram of the PCS-1 than you could email to me?
For microphones with a 3.5 mm miniplug you can use a plug-in at the front of the camera. There is a little plastic cover over the hole under the word "MIC". I would call this an emergency solution because for most recording purposes you would want a microphone with XLR connectors.
This camcorder comes with an external shotgun condenser mic and XLR adaptor. If you have the operating instructions that come with the camera, you can turn to page 29 where there is a description of how to install the supplied external microphone.
When you slip the hot shoe plug of the XLR adaptor into the intelligent accessory shoe, the internal microphone is by-passed. In case you do not have the operating instructions you can download them from the Sony manual site.
Put briefly, Attach the XLR adaptor to the accessory shoe on the top front of the camcorder and tighten the screw of the adaptor. Connect the hot shoe plug of the SLR adaptor to the intelligent accessory shoe of the camcorder, located behind the adaptor screw. When you push the hot shoe plug into place you should hear a click. Sometimes you have to use a little strength to get it correctly seated.
I hope this helps.

Hmmmm well I wonder if you aren't being a tad unfair, we must have more faith in professionals that we use to repair our equipment. IF you have taken it to an authorised service center that actually deals and repairs these items as a matter of course, i would take what is stated as gospel. Most often professionals do NOT need to hide behind fabrications of the truth?
In any event from what you say this indeed does seem OK, and is quite reasonable actually, in my shop it would cost about the dame if not slightly more! In reality that under $300.00 repair is quite low in the big scheme of things this is why, these days replacement is a better option, in nearly all cases unfortunately.
May I add that just because the customer "Thinks" that they have "Sussed" the problem in actuality may NOT be correct and often the most seemingly simplest problems are indeed quite bad. I say have more faith in the people you use> If you want satisfaction one MUST take any repair to the authorised service centers, usually one recommended by the manufacturer or agent, simply contact them and ask for a referral and go from there, as usual ONLY ever first ask for a "Quote".
