NX5U - VC-582 PCB failture
by billmatthiesn on Jun 17, 2015 at 11:23:29 pm
My NX5U suddenly started turning itself off. Turns out it's an "intermittent VC-582 PCB". I was able to borrow the same camera from a friend to get through my shoot. But it turns out his camera had already experienced the same failure. Sony repair is $900.
I'm wondering how many other NX5U owners have had this problem? Both our cameras were out of warranty -- but I'm wondering whether this is a widespread problem with this particular model -- or whether we just got unlucky?
Thanks for whatever feedback you can provide.
