Hello Brian

Sadly, I don't think it will be economical to repair - if, in fact, the required part is even available nowadays and you can find a service facility that will accept it. Certainly, it would end up costing way more than a good condition replacement camera from eBay.

There is a ribbon connector from the main board to the lens that controls zoom, focus and exposure. They had a bad habit of breaking. The repair was not economical when the camera was current, I doubt if it is even possible now. Parts havenít been available for over 2 decades.
