Can I replace a broken sensor in my Mk 1 with one from a Mk 2 or 3?

The sensor from the Mk 2 has lower noise because it is backside illuminated, so it would be awesome to use it for my repair.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Daniel Jenkins just compared the sensors and it looks like they are physically the same so they should fit. I do not have the diagram for the MK2 ,MK3 so I can not verify if the connections will be the same. I would give it a try and purchase a replacement from a place that let's you return things if they do not fit. Let us know what you find out.

My issue is caused by the faulty ribbon cable of the sensor. I was able to fix the issue, at least temporarily, by prodding and wiggling the cable until it worked again. I will update this thread if I attempt another solution.

Please also if anyone has tried one of the new lens assembly*as they have the same ribbon with a wider aperture, let the results be known!, also the rx100 mk3 sensor seems to be the same as the 1 and 2!

Found this on the Rx100 Mk3 description, apparently they are the same sensor but backside illumination(?!
