Can the lens mount ring (the EF mount ring with the red dot) actually be removed without having to remove the front panel by just removing the four screws? Or does one actually have to disassemble the whole camera as shown in this guide?

John Paul Adrian Glaubitz - Antwort

Better to remove mount ring after disassemble the whole came as this guide. The ring was caught and could not be removed.

Scott is right.  To raise the lever is necessary when putting the ribbon back.

Hi, after replacement I've got strong fixed pattern noise. Any ideas what went wrong? Do i need somehow to calibrate it?

hornetsixone - Antwort

oh shi~ sensor placed on springs...it's be hard to calibrate focal plane at home

war666beast - Antwort

WARNING!!!!!

Removing the CMOS sensor, as shown above, will render your camera useless!! (no focus)

WHY?

This sensor (and many others) are very precisely tension-adjusted. It's called FBD or Flange-Back Distance. It's the distance between the lens mount surface and the actual surface of the CMOS sensor (below a low pass filter and below any sensor glass). Requires a special Canon tool to measure and adjust. There is a way around - you can use a high precision digital micrometer to measure it before removal and then adjust after putting it back in place. Still, high precision is required. Canon might refuse to work on your camera after you do it in a way illustrated above. I know at least a couple of such cases and one of them was related to this specific "repair guide". Please be careful!

Mike - Antwort

after open my camera 14 times, I fix part of this problem adjusting the sensor, but now the phase detection works in a vertical position shoot, when I put the camera in horizontal, do not work. Is there some of you having this problem? the whey Im using to do the adjustment is counting how many turns I did on each screw, after tighten all 3

How do I measure with the high precision digital micrometer ? What do I have to measure? Is there any guides for this?
