The strap hook on the left side of my 5d2 body got bent in a fall and I want to replace it. Do I have to go through all these steps or is there an easier way to get to it ? Thanks

Tim - Antwort

Everything it's very nice in this guide.

I just have a question?

Where do I can find the top panel to buy it?

It's seem almost impossible...

stefano masetti - Antwort

My EOS5Dii has a defective shutter button. It won't fire the shutter although, with the batter grip attached, the grip button is fine. Is accessing the button easy?

david - Antwort

I followed you tutorial to a tee and put on my camera new top cover. Now the camera is always on, even when the switch is off and no back buttons work, no image when shooting. The camera will shoot in off, middle and upper switch positions.

Top buttons - ISO, shutter speed work just fine. Auto focus is responsive. Aperture as well. Live View turns on but There is no image. Please advise if you have any idea what might have happened and what I could do to fix it. Thank you. Andrei

Andrei Rozen - Antwort

I opened the camera again and when I closed it, the date and time function came on . After that all camera functions and back buttons began working just fine, except one. The camera always stays on, regardless of on/off switch position, as long as the battery is inserted. Please advise, if you ever respond to messages in this discussion. Thank you.

Andrei Rozen - Antwort

Many thanks!! Managed to re-glue the light metering sensor which came off due to old age I guess.

However, I wasted 20 minutes as the guide doesn’t mention that in order to remove the top panel one must also remove the diopter adjustment knob.

Alexander Ivanchev - Antwort

Do you have to buy new rubber grip / tape or can you just press it on again?

Per Feet - Antwort

Good guide. Sucessfully replaced the top panel on my DSLR. Added a few comments in the instructions, because some screws that needed to be removed, were not described in the guide.

Wow this was of help, I followed it and replaced my 5d mkiii mode dial, thanks alot

These instructions are pretty good but as someone else commented: they do miss the diopter adjuster (which it appears you can remove at any time) and two screws in step 3. Recommend getting a #0 phillips screwdriver - these screws are easy to strip, The part # for top LCD is: canon CG2-2330-000 - on ebay for $43.

I highly recommend labeling which step your screws come from. There are no listed steps to replace the LCD part itself, so if I remember correctly there are 3 or 4 obvious screws you need to remove, unhook some ribbon cables, then you sort of gently lift twist and pull the panel and it will slide out (there is a little nub holding it in in the top left I think). I also recommend that after you get the display hooked back up you put a battery and memory card in it and test - my ribbon wasn’t seated properly and I had to disassemble and reseat,

Good luck! If you keep your screws sorted and use the right tools you should be able to do this in about 30-40 minutes if you move slow.
