    Thank you for your detailed Report about disassembling the 30D. Instead of sending it to Canon I could repair the PC-sync-socket by myself ;).

    The long screw fixing the mainboard is in the lower left corner ;).

    Hint: You don’t need to unscrew the diopter screw. ;).

    Kind regards

    Hi thanks for this demo. I’m actually having to replace my broke shutter on my 30D…so I’m at the part where it looks like I have to remove the right MB and then the large steel plate to access the shutter assymbly. Also, I found my 30D with a loose and one screw missing on the tripod mount (yes I figure there’s a loose screw from the tripod mount somewhere inside or it was never installed with two screws. Also, the right MB top right screw is missing…hummm. I also noticed a lot of finger prints inside which seems odd. My unit was bought new from Dell about 3 years ago.

    Thanks for the tutorial. I have 2 canon 30 Ds. I do wedding photography on the side and use one for backup. But I’m thinking about putting wedding photography on the back burner and use my 2nd camera to experiment with infrared. I know paying someone to do this can cost about $250 – $400. So this tutorial really helps me out. I will let you know if I go through with it.

    Hello, this tutorial helped me a lot, cleaned the mold of my 30d sensor easily, thanks. The only problem is that once rode again now when the card is inserted, shows “err CF” display. What could it be? Hugs.
