Hi Sion, It's at the shop now. I was going to do it myself, but I found my soldering skills and eyesight not up to the job.

So basically, I bought some Hirose plugs and socket (same ones they use on Sound Devices kit for power). They are very secure plugs/socket.
Removed the timecode panel and drilled a hole in there for the new panel socket.

The repair shop is soldering in a couple of wires from the old 12v socket terminals to my new Hirose socket.
The rest I have to do here. I bought a new PSU that had a simple twin wire supply from the PSU (the Fostex version uses a single core surrounded by a braid and not really suitable for wiring to small contacts in the Hirose). I also have NiMh battery packs for RC use. I'll make up a connector for this as well.

I'm confident this will be a good modification and provide a more secure connection when I'm on location.
