6d controller pad not functioning
« on: October 04, 2015, 06:27:09 PM »
The 12 o'clock position does not respond, all others work fine. I think it the control needs to be replaced. Anyone have a guide on how to DIY? The plastic pad just pops off, but how to remove the control itself?

Thanks, Robert

Hi Robert.
Best I can offer is this, possibly the best available.

Sounds like a major PITA to get in to.
Have fun, good luck.

Cheers, Graham.

does it feel normal and does not respond  or  does it feel gummy?

It is soft on that position, whilethe others have a soft click feeling...that is why I think it is bad.

Thanks Graham, I will check that out. I did find a tutorial on taking the back cover off, but nothing specific to remove that part...
