I have an HF11 that was likely dropped and it had a black screen when in record or photo mode. Playback and view modes worked fine.

I tracked the first problem down to a loose ribbon cable inside the unit. Now that the image shows up, the focus never adjusts. There is one spot that it will be in focus while zooming. Manual focus doesn't work either, so I suspect whatever motor that adjusts the focus isn't connected.

Does anyone know where to look for a loose cable or other steps to try? Is the focus adjustment controlled by the same cable as the image output?

It's not worth enough to send it in for repair, so I'm looking for DIY ideas. Thanks!
