Having problems with your Canon EOS-5D 12.8 Megapixel SLR Digital Camera w/ EF 24-70mm Zoom Telephoto EF 70-200mm f/ Autofocus L ?

I am using Canon EOS 5D. I was taking pictures of the sunset this evening, then the mirror inside the camera dropped out inside. I opened the camera and saw the little mirror (I don't know what it's called) was not in the position it's supposed to be. I guess the glue between it and the camera didn't work, so the mirror can stick to the camera. Please help me! What can I do now? I can't afford to fix it at this time, and I don't know if it's a serious problem.


Answers :

Has the mirror actually fallen off from the frame or is it that it is misaligned? Both, by themselves, are not serious problems. You do not need to pay much for fixing it. If the camera is not under warranty, you can get it fixed by a local (reliable) service guy. If it is under warranty, better get it fixed by an authorized service center.

A word of caution though--after the mirror is fixed, it would be a good idea to get the sensor cleaned by an expert. This is because if the mirror gets misaligned, it can, in some cases, touch the rear element of the lens and thus leave some dust in the camera.

Adding WD-40 Will adding a little bit of wd-50 to the camera zoom swivel head affect the camera? I probably should have sprayed it on a napkin and wiped it but I sprayed it directly on. But not much at all. But my camera has completely stopped working and its stuck with the zoom out and everything. But it might also be a battery problem since I dont have my battery charger and dont know if the camera died but I dont think it would die with the lens still exposed. I have a Sone DSC-W50.

Just bought my used camera from Salvation Army. I know I shouldn't expect it to work, but it does in a way. I'd like to know why when I turn the camera on, the ready light flashes a few times (7, maybe), but does nothing else. I can't hear inside the camera to see if anything else is trying to function. I hooked the camera up to the computer, and nothing happened. Not sure if this is because I didn't install the CD needed.

Slow camera Thank you for the suggestions. I got the camera about 6 years ago and it worked fine. The problem started recently, over the last few months. It cannot be related to the card, or the processor. They were the same when it worked well. It is charging up very slowly. I think it is either a capacitor or a rechargable battery that lost performance over time. Do you know anything about the inside battery?


Unfortunately, the externals you use are AA's so I'm sure you've tried new ones there.  \015\012The internal battery (or capacitor) is not worth attempting to replace for a camera of that age. You may end up spending more to replace the battery ... Fuji FinePix A303 Digital Camera
