EOS 6D - cover sockets on side of camera.

UK query but there does not seem to be a UK forum

 

The plastic cover over the sockets on the side of the camera has come loose, the plastic "hinge" has broken.

I tried asking Canon but they just say to send the camera to the repair agent, but all I need is a small plastic cover which should be easy to fit.

Any idea where I could just get the spare part?

Do you have a local camera shop on that side of the pond that sells Canon gear?  They might be the ones to ask about getting Canon parts in the UK.

Not near me!

I will try asking the recognised repair company if they would supply a simple spare like that but thought I would ask first in case anyone in the UK knew anywhere.

I recall that H. Lehmann Ltd in Stoke on Trent usually can supply spare parts and are also authorised Canon repairers

Thanks I will give them a try.

A Google  search shows quite a lot of spares around but most tend to be from China which I never trust.

I have a 6D and just took a look. There are two port covers. My question is whether you can easily remove what's left in the camera after one of them breaks and pop in a replacement without some disassembly. 

What looks like it should be a simple fix doesn't always work out that way.

Yes there are two halves, I think there was a small piece of rubber / plastic them togethet.

They appear to be held in place by a rubber / plastic peg that pushes into a hole.

It might be tricky to replace but I would like to try first to save the hassle of finding a box, packing up and the cost of the repair.  Also means I am not without the camera for week (I do have other cameras).

 

 

 

Good luck!
