Question about Sony DCR-VX2000 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
If they have to replace the actuator motor, then your looking at about $350-400 for that part. Plus it is labor intensive, so their estimate is in the ball park - a bit on the high end, but it's in there. What is their turnaround time?
As for trying to repair this yourself, don't. This is not an easy fix without the knowledge and proper tools to replace the motor. It's very hard to get to, and there are about 1000 tiny little pieces, screws, springs, etc. Any one of those get's damaged or goes missing, and you're going to hate yourself. Try getting another quote for a competitor, and compare. Make sure there is some kind of warranty for the work.
Of course, you also have the option of not fixing it, and either buying a new one. I would suggest posting it up on ebay as an 'as-is' or 'parts only' item, then take those funds and invest in a new camera.. These retail for $1000, and I've even seen them on sale for about $850 - so this is a tough decision to make.
Hope this helps some.
