Question about Canon EOS Rebel Ti / 300V 35mm SLR Camera
The film door latch doesn't seem to have the springiness to keep it in the closed position, and thus, if the latch gets bumped it can easily shift to the open position, letting the film door come open and exposing film. Granted, one fix will be to put tape over the latch once it's closed, however, I was wondering how tough it is to change out the latch mechanism itself or to put in some kind of replacement spring in the existing latch. USCamera seems to sell a latch mechanism at http://uscamera.stormer.us/1can050_017.htm
My crystal ball tells me that you are referring to you vintage 1939 Pentax SLR camera! Is that correct?

SOURCE: Film door latch is loose
Same advice I made to another post. At some point you got to make a decision. There is a lot of plastic pieces that can break. Canon doesn't support the T series from what I've read. You may consider getting another one. You also have to consider that the fix may not work. Then what do you do?
