Need To Clean and Calibrate Canon 10D DSLR
Hi. I have an old Canon 10D, 30D and now I just got the new 7D. I am an Apple computer tech who specializes in repairing, upgrading and overhauling mainly Mac laptops and have many special "micro" surgical tools plus access to an electron microscope that a doctor friend has in her lab. Plus I went through an electronics online repair course for additional training.
What I would like to do is completely take the 10D apart, clean it and calibrate it myself if I could get the 10D service manual from Canon. Since I work with very small components, I am used to using special tools for small circuit boards, special soldering, etc. I'm not worried if I damage the 10D if I make a mistake because it's not selling for much on ebay anyway, so it would be a good camera for me to experiment with. Although I plan to be very careful.
My understanding is that Canon has a software program on CD for calibrating their DSLR's as well. Since I repair Apple laptops anyway, I may teach myself to repair DSLR's that are out of warranty.
Is there anyway to get a service manual for the 10D and calibration software from Canon directly? Also, does anyone know if Canon has a service technician training program similar to the ones Apple computer offers?
Thanks for any help, links and advice.
Is this a good question?
