£1900 for a repair aaaaaaaauuuuuuggghhhh................!!!! Battery Error Message

Sheesh

The battery error message I got is apparently caused by the firewire circuitry in the camera (despite the fact i NEVER use firewire on the camera) They say they cannot fix the DPR298 board, and want to charge me £1600 plus Tax, so about £1900, thats $3,120.30 USD

OOOOUCH!

I spoke to Sony directly to find out why it costs so much and they said its the main circuit board, I said yes, Im sure that costs about $20 in real costs, as I have already paid for the R&D by buying the camera... they had no sympathy and i have no choice but to fork out.

So there you go, if you ever get the battery error message and your camera powers down automatically after a few seconds, be worried... be very worried ;-)

till later
Mark.

Ouch! I feel your pain, Mark.

Is that the 1 or 3?

Ex-1, NOT under guarantee...

I hope my firmware update will not be gone when they replace that circuit board.

Cheers,
Mark.
