In Topic: Canon 7d flash help

I also had the same problem.  I was able to easily remove the hotshoe as well as the plate under it, but I still couldn't get the button to come up.  It seemed that the only way to access it was to open the back of the camera, so I gave up and sent it to Canon to repair.  However, I think if you pull up the flash with your finger nail while pressing the flash deployment button, you should be able to get the flash open and then fire, which is what I think your immediate need is.  Good luck.


I found my receipt.  They charged me $246 with shipping.

It may be a coincidence, but I just noticed two pretty harsh reader reports in Undercurrent about the Carib Dancer in the Bahamas.  It may be totally unrelated  I'm just speculating, but perhaps they are getting bad press and need to offer big discounts to regain their reputation and do damage control.  I've been to Galapagos twice but not on an Aggressor or Dancer.  I have been on 4 or 5 Dancers/Aggressors around the world and I've generally found them to be very good.

Thanks for all this information.  Your shots are amazing as always. Have you heard anything indicating a manufacturer is moving to produce these or is this just to tease us?  :)

The vinegar and alcohol worked great.  Thanks everyone.  Looks shinny and new now.

Thanks Bill.  I haven't found any definitive suggestion on acid.  It seems that white vinegar may be the best place to start.  My concern is what's under the contacts.  Those screws are pretty small, but I could probably get them out.  I could try getting a small socket wrench onto the other contacts, but they look pretty flat.  I don't know if that's asking for trouble to try to take them all out or if I should just dump some vinegar in, scrape off what I can, and leave it at that.
