Canon Rebel Ti Broken Back Door Latch

I found a place that sells replacement parts (inexpensive, too - yah!): Can the repair be done at home? I tried to get the back off, took out 6 screws, but couldn't get the main piece inside the door to come out in order to get to where the broken latch is. How do you do that? Or should I take it to a professional?

    I ended up buying the replacement part from Canon because it was cheaper (part was under $2, plus s/h = $7.97). I needed it repaired quickly, so I took my camera to a local camera shop, which cost $35 to get it fixed. It's really frustrating that Canon even charges for this faulty part! They should be replacing it for free & making them metal!! I had a client lined up to photograph, when I realized my camera was broke : ( Thanks for the helpful advice, MF! I'll certainly try that next time = )

    I have a EOS Rebel Ti 300V. Its back cover is not closing. Its not closing with or without a film. I tried to tape the cover so film reloads but no luck.

There is one more screw hidden under the pressure plate, push it down and slide it towards the hinge to remove it. Welcome to the secret society! MF

How can I get repair parts for my eos elan 7 Canon film door?

Remove front cover to get to latch. Be careful not to touch the flash circuit as it can have a nasty 300 volt shock.

Canon parts phone number: 732-521-7230. They used to take credit cards, not sure if they still do. They are really good about ordering by description.

Canon Rebel flash

The most common cause of the flash not popping up is liquid spillage, especially sticky liquids like Coke. If this is the case, you can work a business card on the right side and move back the latch to pop it up manually. Usually the spillage is on the right side where the large silver screw is. If you remove the screw carefully, you may find rust. Scrape it off with a sharp blade and then apply a light coating of lubricant grease to the screw and the hole. Be careful not to disconnect any springs. There are usually three screws on the bottom of the flash holding on the top cover. Be careful not to touch the wires and flash tube. There can be 300 volts which will cause a nasty shock.

I have a Canon EOS Rebel Ti 35mm SLR Camera. I just replaced the batteries but it still is not turning on. Is there a lock or maybe a reason why this is occuring?

Make sure the battery terminals are clean. Use a pencil eraser to scrub them until they and the battery terminals are bright and shiney. Other wise the camera will need a reapir and possible electronic parts replaced.

Broken latch on film door

Usually on this level Nikon it was a plastic "hook", part of the door moulding, that was retained by the latch mechanism in the body. The broken part may still be in there - if it is trip the latch and recover it with a tiny screwdriver or even a needle. If you can't find a replacement back door you can try welding the hook back in place with a low-temperature soldering iron - with the tip perfectly clean and a very steady hand - as long as the door is thermoplastic and not thermosetting. If that doesn't work bend a paperclip or similar to exactly the right shape with the free ends (roughened) long enough to extend into the plastic of the door by 4-5mm., heat the wire and push slowly into the edge of the door. There are many variations of this technique that I've used, all require extremely careful work! Best tip: spend more time thinking than doing. Good luck.

How to replace the door latch on a canon rebel eos ti

The cameras film door has a very small phillips head screw inside the battery doors hinge. Its a pain to take out & replace if you hands are shakey for this screw is so small. Also installing the replacement hinge would be a little harder to install tha removing the broken one.
I hope this information will help you. A camera shop should be able to do it for free if you maybe purchase some items there. Most shops which are very small and privately owned shops will do this for you

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?

Fitting replacement film door release catch

I suggest you bring the camera to the Canon service rep in your area and for a few dollars you let them do it. This way, if there is any damage they are responsible.

I don't know the answer for your particular model, but in many of these cameras it is possible to easily do colaterol damage when changing parts.
