SONY SONY SONY SONY SONY Can't Post

Now that I have your attention.

I am missing a few of those annoying little screws, that loosen frequently, from my SONY DCR-PC105.

I called the nearest SONY service centre and they want $5 each.

This is either a M1.4 x 1.4 or a M1.7 according to the guy at the service centre.

Does anyone know of a source with REASONABLE pricing for these screws?

I recall seeing someone post in here who said the worked for SONY, but couldnt find them with the search function.

Id like to hear from them.

Thank you!

Sam

Flat head, pan head, or another type?

Here are a few possibilities:

I am not sure what "M1.4 x 1.4" is, but here are some similarly priced (though slightly cheaper) M1.4 variants on microfasteners.com.

The price is not necessarily unreasonable. I doubt it's cheap to make a screw that tiny and precise.

In the developed world we use the metric system.
M1.4 would be a thread diameter of 1.4 millimeters, the other measurement (in this case also 1.4) would be the thread length.

M1.4 is the metric thread size

x 1.4 means it is 1.4mm long

it is a countersunk phillips head screw

and if I'm paying $5 for a fastener it had better be very special, like Titanium-special and these are not...

Luke - you're a dirty bastard for posting that while I wrote this!
