Two options:

1. Replace the cable with the same connector.
2. Replace the 2.5 mm connector.

I took the LANC cable from an old Sony remote, open up the tripod remote control handle and replace the whole cable. Some soldering required to remove the wires from the PC board and solder the new wire.

The PC board has marking White/Black/Red, the replacement connector with the Tip to the White, the Ring to the Red, and the Shell to the Black.

Good luck!

My camera is falling forward off tripod when I let go of it after a few seconds. I've tightened all the knobs and I need to fix this today..

Without knowing the make and model of the tripod and the type of the camera, I can only be general/

The camera may be too heavy for the tripod head. Heads are rated to hold so much weight. If the camera/lens combo is too heavy for the head. it will tip forward. Many department store grade tripods can handle only light cameras.

The locking mechanism may be damaged/broken.

If you need more info, please repost the question, specifying the make and model of the tripod and the type of the camera. If it takes interchangeable lenses, also include the make and model of the lens.

The connector of my flashdrive is broken or it possible to fix it ? and how?

I have fixed many broken connectors, sometimes they are simple, other times they are tricky ( a broken connector can sometimes take part of the Printed Circuit Board with it ) and require very delicate skill. If the problem looks obvious you could attempt a repair. If the data is important and you need it, send it to a professional data recovery service. Believe it or not solder in the wrong places can seriously damage the chances of a successful recovery. I now run a simple mail in recovery service , mail your drive in and get the data back.

How can I prevent the Handy cam to shut down on stand-by as I use the cam for computer recording

Buy one of these:

If you plug it into the LANC input on your camcorder it will prevent the camera from going into standby mode (assuming you have a camcorder with a Control-L jack).
