General Photography Discussion / EOS Slipping Main Wheel fix
« Last post by Funtera on April 15, 2017, 02:55:49 AM »
My 50D suddenly developed an issue last time in wales, I'd spin the Wheel for the Shutter speed and it'd spin without gripping.

I did some research and found an article and it suggests using Superglue (  HERE ) ... however I thought this was a bit harsh (bad dreams of gluing the damn thing to the body) and a couple of others in the Comments had the same thoughts. Someone suggested Rubbing Alcohol so I read a bit more into it.

Needless to say I picked up some Isopropyl Alcohol ( only 70% proof but not drinkable :-( ) and after pulling the Wheel out a bit and dabbing some on the Main Dial, I spun it a few times and it slipped completely , now I'm thinking I've messed up Big Time but after a couple of minutes the Alcohol and grease/gunk it's "eaten" had evaporated and it's perfect !!

I know this ain't the normal thread for in here but if this helps someone else save £179 from Canon to replace the Dial or whatever from Lehmans .. I've done some good!

Surprised that this hasn't got a higher profile but I'd love to think that when I get to sixty I might be able to walk this (let alone RUN it) for 558.  Good on you Michael!

Just watched "Mach2", a hijack of a Concorde, with Secret Service and Body Guards and distressed women and made in America - yes a disaster of a movie.

Loads of goofs and poor research - due to the "terrorists" having a "nuclear bomb" on board the US Navy are ordered to shoot it down. They managed to catch up with it over France and still went on to try it.

U.S. Secret Service asked French AirTraffic Control "can you speak English", of course the International Aviation language is English.

The cockpit of the Concorde in the film has enough room for a three piece suite, in fact the real cockpit was really cramped and one needed to climb over the seats to get into the pilots position.

After the final desperate landing in France, all the light aircraft on the ground had American registrations.

Classic one for buffs.
