Canon 7D stuck on/off switch.
« on: April 08, 2013, 05:54:05 AM »
Hi, I am new here on the forum but I have been following the rumors and the forum since long ago. When did it start? ;)

But I have a problem with my 7D. And the on off powerbutton is stuck in on after I something got in under it after being in my backpack.

Is this something I can try to fix myself or is it every repairattempt only for cameratechnicians?

I often travel to NYC and will BH or Adorama fix things on the same day?

Thanks

Viggo

Yep, there was a perfectly good reason why Canon mounted the on/off switch on the rear vertical plane of the body, until highly opinionated reviewers / commentators forced them to change  ::)

I'm afraid I can't offer any constructive advice, but if it feels real stuck and ( reasonably ) gentle knocking and tapping the body whilst holding up side down / vertical etc doesn't loosen the obstruction it sounds like a dismantle job  :(
