    Hi Joe Rex
    I have checked out local Pawn Shops with no luck for the AF-assist beam cover with no luck, the flash is working perfectly, its only the cover I need. Do you know of any Canon agents that would supply this part only to my address in Ireland ? Yerman

I broke a lens once and just went and bought a New / Used Bounce Flash that had a uneversal flash-boot. most cameras have a flash plug in to acommidate Auto Flash Modes. If You Know how to test Cameras and Adjustable 'Bounce" flashes like yours PAWN SHOPS are a PARADISE.

I can't find a replacement main fresnel panel for my Canon 550EX. Any suggestions?


Canon often won't sell replacement parts like this to consumers but you may get your local repair shop to order one for you or find a dead one on Ebay or Craigslist and use it for parts.

Smashed Face - need replacement part to CK Flash Watch


Yes mate,there are! Try these links to get the prob sorted:

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&rlz=1C1GGLS_en-GBGB324GB324&q=calvin+klein+watch+repairs+in+Australia&btnG=Search&meta=
Try this link and get what you want. Be very persistant and push hard, as I had experiance to KC beeing very unwilling to supply parts and do any repairs. If You can't get stuff over the net - do not minge a few bucks and make direct phone call. At the very end they (CK) will be happy :(( to supply the glass and will not charge their in-house repair bill. Any decent watchmaker is able to fit the glass at the same level of quality as CK does.
Rate me, please.

Hi

The part is probably defective and needs to be replaced, or its possible if the camera was dropped it needs to be unplugged and then plugged back in... maybe it's just not making full contact.

If you need the camera repaired, thats what we do, we are a digital camera repair business. Just let us know, we can check it out for you. If you want to buy just the part and try it yourself feel free to contact me and I will see if I can buy just that small piece or not.

Good luck from

AF Beam Cover


Check out LEE Filter or Kodak IR Filter
Place that filter over AF Sensor.

Or try ti find remote(TV/VCR/DVD/radio) control unit with a large filter over led.

You can still glue those broken part and glued it back as close as possible.

Battery cover replacement


First, replacement battery covers may be obtained from dealers in the USA - I got mine from San Diego Camera Solution who list the item on eBay. Haven't found a UK outlet, but I guess Leung's at Goodmayes would offer a repair service if you don't fancy DIY.

(Disclaimer that I have no connection with either company).

Not sure what Canon recommend, but the easiet way (worked for me) does not involve stripping the camera down. If you dissemble the old and new battery covers via the three little cross-point screws (see warning), then it is possible to replace the new cover around the original hinge assembly.

The advantage of this method - aside from not opening the camera - is that there are "spares" the bits that will get dropped (spring and screws) so that there is less time wasted trying to find them while effecting the repair!

The trickiest part is the sprung loaded latch, which must be installed with the spring partly compressed. Beware when first taking the covers apart and especially when refitting, because the spring will do its utmost to escape.
