In Topic: Shutter replacement - shutter count not reset?

09 June 2014 - 02:55 PM

In my Canon 5D MII I have an internal battery that many people don't realize exists.  If you remove that and reinstall the battery it may reset your shutter count.  I don't know if Nikon frowns on it from the standpoint you won't have an accurate count for the purposes of reaching the shutter lifetime limit.  If they replaced the shutter mechanisim I don't see a problem with it but if you are selling it to another person they might not be happy with the fact that you reset the count.  I would personally like to know the count. If the camera was overhauled you should include the maintenance that was done on it to both give an accurate history and show that you really are caring for your camera.


  Just a thought.

You might try PB 2000.  However, the key is not to get the oil in the o-rings if you can avoid it so you might apply it via a q-tip and let it soak and let it do its job.  However, if you plan on replacing all the o-rings and you get some oil on them just make sure there is no remaining residue anywhere since it will cause the ruber to deteriorate over time. 


This stuff works good.

I have a 5D MII that had its o-rings serviced last year.  I used it 3 times this year.  It includes a vacuum leak detector system.  Price is $2200 plus shipping and insurance - firm.
