Having problems with your Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II Digital Camera ?

Hot shoe loose

\015 Camera hot shoe metal plate has come loose, causing intermittent problems firing flashgun.\015

Answers :

Canon typically hides the screws under the metal plate on the shoe itself. You have to free it at the front and slide it back to get access to the screws holding the shoe
Brilliant Saved me £120 fee at fixation in london.
\015\012As a little more clarity:- the cover over screws is quite thin and there is a small hole (2mm diameter) in it: centre towards the front of the camera. If you insert the sharp object in that hole and gently lift and slide the cover off to reveal screws.... you will need mini phillips screw drivers as they are small screws....... took about 3 mins to fix.

Pentax K110d flash trigger problem, I have 2 flash trigger strobes set up and a flash on the hot shoe of the camera, but with shutter release the trigger strobe lights fire but do not show in the pic, only the hot shoe flash is reaching the sensor. but if I slow down shutter to 0.5 sec the strobes show up.?

Your camera uses a PTTL flash system. That means the flash on the camera fires a "pre-flash" to set the exposure and then the main flash. Your flash trigger strobes are reacting to the pre-flash and firing before the shutter activates. This all happe ... Pentax K110D Digital Camera

External flash will not override internal flash - the subject ends up with very harsh over-lighting. in other words, both flashes go off when i have the camera flash set "on". this is with the hot shoe function "off". if i turn the hot shoe function "on", then neither flash works (internal or external).

Have a lumix DMC-FC20 and began to hear a noise as if there was a loose part... I am familiar with the stability mechanism and was aware camera movement can result in a noise that sounds similar to a loose part but the noise continued even if the camera was powered-off. My curiosity got the best of me and I removed the screws on the casing and opened the back to confirm that there was a loose screw approximately 1/4" long. I have no idea where the screw came from since I could not easily remove

What happened is this: the zoom lever has become loose. I hadn't applied any excessive pressure to it or force to it in any way, but while using it to navigate through the photo browser (which is one of its functions) it suddenly made a slight ?click? sound and felt very loose (as if a spring or a coil inside it broke). Subsequently the camera only zooms in/out to its maximum capacity, while normally it should pause between the zooms. g7 canon
