Question about Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II Digital Camera
The little rectangular screen fell out and I have no instructions for putting it back in. THe manual just refers to 'the manual that came with the new focusing screen', which I don't have, since this is the original that came with the camera, I am not sure what to do? thanks
There is a metal cradle inside the camera in the roof that flips down. Try firing the shutter without a lens attached, you'll be able to see the rectangular cradle(Tray) The Focusing screen is to be placed in the roof of the camera with the small tab facing OUT of the camera,.be sure to press in firmly with some pressure, but ensure that you support the tray while you do this so as not to damage it.do not touch the main part of the focusing screen Focusing screens get damaged very easily. Try only to touch the tab(make sure your hand is not making direct contact with the screen, as i learnt mine the hardway, you can wear apair of clean surgical gloves) The Cradle then lifts upwards and clicks in. Also note the lock in tab that holds the tray in place and check to see that its not slack, if it is, the tray will drop back halfway after firing the shutter and lifting the cradle/tray. to correct this, slightly push it in & fire the shutter again until you get the right amount of grip nd your tray stays up after the shutter is fired. It worked well for some time until it fell out again and irepeated the procedure above and added this time some very thin line of glue around the edge of the screen to keep it in place. Dont use epoxy based glues like super glue et al.
