Question about Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II Digital Camera
Camera hot shoe metal plate has come loose, causing intermittent problems firing flashgun.
Brilliant Saved me £120 fee at fixation in london.
As a little more clarity:- the cover over screws is quite thin and there is a small hole (2mm diameter) in it: centre towards the front of the camera. If you insert the sharp object in that hole and gently lift and slide the cover off to reveal screws.... you will need mini phillips screw drivers as they are small screws....... took about 3 mins to fix.

I had the same problem and fixed it within a few minutes' time. I'd like to clarify the process a bit, however. To "free it at the front," it's best to insert small sharp object and LIFT a small amount. Then slide the thin metal plate backwards to reveal the four tiny screws. My 580 EX II now fires properly. Thanks very much!
