Inductor Identification - Sony Camcorder

I accidentally tightened the tripod mounting screw too far into my Sony HDC-TM60 camcorder and it will no longer power on. I have the camcorder disassembled and located the damaged component. It is a coil/inductor and the last two digits are "00". Anyone know what the full part number is for this component? This is a $600 camcorder and this one measly component is preventing it from working.

That one measly component will be next to impossible to replace as you can't get to the bottom of it to remove it and resolder a new one in. That is a surface mounted board.

I've replaced surface mount components before. I should be able to remove the old component with a fine-tipped soldering iron and put the new one on with a hot air pen. My main concern is determining the part number. I found a service manual online so we'll see what it says.

Got the service manual (CD) in the mail today and guess what....it has every schematic and diagram except the one I need (the Main PCB) Guess I''ll just have to take a guess on the inductor value and hope for the best. Nothing to lose really.

Think I'll take a gamble and assume it's a 10 uH inductor with a marking "100". I'll be replacing it with this component and hoping for the best:

I would agree..........

The value is in uh (microhenries)
The first two digits are the value.
The third digit is the multiplier.

10 x 0 = 10uh

I found a seller on eBay that is selling the main board and asked her if she could tell me what the part number is. She sent several photos of the board and it is in fact a 10uH inductor (marking of "100"). Already ordered the part from Digikey. Hopefully that does it!

Just thought I'd post an update for those of you that were following this thread. I finally got around to replacing that inductor and wah lah, camcorder is working again! A $1 part saved a $500 camcorder. It's a good day
