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?

Re: Broken selector switch!
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.

Fix! We had the same problem, and when we opened up the case (8 screws
and a pin later), we found that a tiny plastic tab had broken off the
Forward/Reverse selector, which costs less than a dollar. We ordered it from a local supplier to avoid $10 shipping.
As you only told that the screen is broken.You just need to visit to the you are nearest service center. *There they will take few minutes. *This may cost you more. *You give any ware you stay but give to only sony ericsson service center only.
well you could send it away to be fixed, this could cost a bit. alternatively you could simply use the rca plugs instead, just for games this'd be fine. for bluray movies as well then send it away. there is no substitute for sony quality
hey mj, the thing u r talking only mean one thing, your on-off switch is broken!! that's it.. go to technician and ask them to repair the on-off switch, if they tell you other thing is broken, don't believe them, all you have to change is the on-off switch (which cost only a little). If they asked you how you know that only your on-off switch get broken, answer them you got a cousin who's a technician, but he's going out overseas for the moment, so he asked you to fix it to nearest technician. I suppose, it won't cost you more than 10-20usd. gud luck ^^
Unfortunatly when the screen is broken it costs about as much as a new tv to replace. I paid 1600 for an LCD and my daughter broke it. I would have cost 1200 to replace the lcd panel. So I just bought a new TV. For you new TV pick up a product called TV Armor. Its a TV screen protector designe d to stop objects from breaking the TV screen. http://www.tv-armor.com . I bought one a few weeks ago and now I can finally relax when she is playing near the TV.
This problem occurs when the 2 pieces of glass holding the display alltogheter are broken by a mechanical shock. When this happens the tft (twin film transistor) area is broken and the display itself is compromised. The solution to this is to change the whole display unit. You may send the camera to repair, it will cost arround 70-100$ to have it fixed. That is excluding labour costs and transport. In my opinion it is worth it.
