Fried my hot shoe. Is there a PCB integrated in the hot shoe assembly?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am hoping someone will have the answer I am looking for. I was having a problem with my A6000 using an external flash. I have concluded through forum reading that I may have fried something in my camera when I mounted an old flash from the 80's to my hot shoe. Apparently that's a big no-no.

My question is: Is there a control board in the hot shoe assembly? From reading I gathered I need to replace the hot shoe control board. I don't know if the board is in the hot shoe assembly, on the main board, or even an separate board from those. The parts are pretty pricey, so I don't want to get the wrong part.

If anyone knows the answer to my question or has experience in what would need to be replaced for this issue, I'd appreciate the input.
