I rented a NEX-VG10 HandyCam . The tripod it was on fell over, and the screw mount is ripping out of the camera. That part seems easy to replace--the plate is held in by like 4 screws. Is it easy to repair? About how much might it cost to repair? Please give me a range of costs.
I can't just press it back in. The plastic around the screw mount is ripping out.

No, please I need the question answered.
Please answer soon, if possible.
The best thing that you can do at the moment is to add a "little" bit of strong and clear super glue and push the plastic back into itself to make it flush. Quickly wipe off any overflow of glue with alcohol. Let dry for 30 minutes and you should be ok to continue using it for the time being. The only way to properly and completely repair it would be to replace that entire plastic plate. Replacing it would be easy so labor will be low and the part itself will cost about $50-$75. A fair market value for a repair like that should only be around $100-$125.

Thank you. I will rate you highest and pay the price. But, since I'm also cheap, I'd like to ask you another question, unrelated. If you dont answer it, I'll still rate you highest.
What Converters are you using? There are a lot of converters out there that simply produce horrible results. That's why the good stuff is expensive to buy but is also required.
I am using Any-video-converter. That's the one that doesnt do the job. What do you recommend for AVCHD? (And, as I said, I have Adobe Premiere Elements, which I havent tested, because its supposed to be for editting.)
Try using this software: http://www.avchdconverter.org/. Let me know how it goes.
