Question about Sony Handycam DCR-DVD201 DVD Camcorder
My selector switch is broken. I was goin to send it off to get it fixed through SONY and it was goin to cost more than I paid for it. So i love taking things apart and after realizing it was junk, I did. I found the broken part. It is a tiny plastic piece under the switch that when pressed down it pushes on the electronic components of which i know nothing about. I can not find anywhere where i can buy this piece. It would be seemingly easy to fix if I could just find out what the part number is. Any suggestions?
You most likely can not buy one because like you said you don't have a part number. These are sometimes called "tactile switches" or "domes". This is a long shot. If you are up for an adventure and want to learn something at the same time try this: One) go to a "used electronics" surplus store. One that carries small misc components and "junk". Take your broken part with you. See if they have something similar to it that can be used in place of it. or better yet Two) go to a "Printed Circuit" board house. One that specifically sells "keyboards and touch pads". Ask for a salesman or production manager. Show him the part you that is broken and ask if he has something similar. If he does he'll probably give it to you. If not he'll will know if you can even get them. Unfortunately, the part you are seeking is proprietary to Sony, so you might not find one. But you might find one that is a close match. One other choice see if you can find your model camera in surplus or a broken one on E-bay for the spare parts. But sounds to me it's to the junk pile.
