Hi, did you manage to find out how to replace it? Having problems with mine, and have just ordered a replacement.


No, unfortunately I haven't replaced it. I found a posting on the net from a guy who enquired at Canon and was told that a strip-down costing a couple of hundred Dollars was neccessary.

Mine's is stuck on manual, so I've just been working with that.


Have done some research and have gotten in contact with a guy that repairs cameras. He told me I would have to strip off the casing before I can replace the dial (I think it's held on by a screw from the inside). Will be attempting the tear down when my replacement dial arrives. Will tell you how it goes.



I was quoted 248.00 for what might be a simple task. Where can I buy the mode dial? Have you actually accomplished this repair yet? If so, I'd like to know if maybe it was not so easy or worth the cost I was quoted.




Did you find a way to get that mode dial repaired?
