It seems that the firewire connector on my hd1000 is damaged similar to that in the following: http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/Forum28/HTML/000239.html

Given that the PC board that it attaches to is no longer made, what's the best way to repair this connector? Is the connector a separate Panasonic part?, or part of the PC board assembly? If that latter, where can one find a "standard" jack?

Bruce,

I'll post a detailed thread on this repair in a few days. Meanwhile you should order the connector from Panasonic. Go to here and on to parts ordering and search the PVHD1000 parts list for a #VJJ0568, DV Jack,$7.65. It's a bit expensive but it fits properly. If you buy a jack at a local electronics store you'll find that the grounding tabs don't line up with the holes in the little circuit board.

You'll also need a fine tipped, temp-controlled, soldering iron like the Hako 936, some solder wick, a small swivel vice or other holder, a long-shaft Phillips screw driver (or a small right-angle Phillips), and a nice light/magnifier. If you're young and have eyes of an eagle, you might be able to get by without the magnifer.
