I had been tempted to solder the new USB into the printed circuit. Luckily I did not attempt this but persevered and found Short Wave based in Christchurch. I had already bought a new USB from Maplin Electronics and handed this over to him. He took a look and said that it was repairable but with modern boards soldering irons are likely to lift the connections. I now have a fully functioning CCD camera within 24 hours. This was not an easy task as the board was double sided but using a hot air iron he was able to extract the damaged terminal and replace it.Short Wave are a company I would happily endorse. They are also specialists in Video Cameras.
