HVL-F43M or HVL-F60M Broken mount ? No worries. DIY.

The HVL-F43M flash is a fantastic flash, but the new mount can break easy if you're not being careful. I personally take a good care of my gear, but accidents happen.

If the mount breaks, warranty won't cover it, so don't send it to Sony or to any camera repair shop and pay shipping and labor. You can save time and money by replacing the damaged part yourself. All you need to do is order Sony part # x25877301 "shoe assembly"

The mount cost $32 plus shipping. I ordered mine by phone.

It takes 5 minutes to replace it. You will need a long nose pliers, to connect the cable, because fingers won't rich in there to plug it in. It is a good idea to protect the cable from punctures using a small piece of paper (see attached photo)

I hope you'll find this post useful. Thanks for reading.
