    Canon VT repair

    Hello,

    It seems one small drop did my Canon VT in by landing directly on the winding knob when extended. The camera still functions, but VERY slowly with lots of force required. I wanted to try to remove the top plate to try to correct what appears to be a bent winding shaft, but after removing the screws on the front, the timer mechanism, and a few screw in the winding knob, I'm stuck with what else to do. Can someone help direct me how to disassemble this camera?

    Thank you, my only concern would be how the slow speed dial comes in to play now

    Hmm, I don't think you have to remove that.
    Did you remove the flash pc socket screw ? I have to remove that on my P.

    The canon P is not similar in disassembly as with the VT. I tried with with these service manuals and it is a different build. Search apug for my top plate removal instructions i wrote a while back as i had to do it on a VIT. It has photos and tips for things that might not be obvious at first look. Get a good set of correctly sized screw drivers for the set screws or you will strip them and make it impossible to dissemble not sure you can even drill out such a small screw if you do strip them. Good luck
