Question about Sony HVL-F1000 TTL Flash
This part, the 'hot shoe assembly' is much stronger than it looks and holds all the weight of the flash mounted to the camera in those 2 little slots.
Yes, you'll need to replace it.
Are you comfortable with electronics and small components. There are small springs and pins/ball bearings/contacts in there when the cover is removed and wires may have to be soldered in place (I can't remember if there is a plug for those wires inside).
Try here to buy the part you need or contact Sony service (I'm assuming you're in the USA):
Keep us informed if this was good or you need further help.
