I have a Sony DCR-TRV18 MiniDV camcorder from the early 2000's. The firewire port has gone bad and I'd like to fix it by replacing that part.
I've looked for an identical TRV18 camcorder to buy so I can swap out the part. However, there are two camcorders that I believe to be basically identical camcorders, except for the LCD screen size, they are the TRV25 and TRV27 camcorders.
Does anyone know if I could buy one of those other models (if I can't find a cheap enough TRV18) and use the part in the TRV18?
