just thought i'd open this as i'd guess i'm going to have a few questions along the way of me trying to repair this camera.

first one . . . Blue or pink?

barring a number of unplugged ribbons ive noticed the lcd power cable seems to be disconnected/snapped. Does anyone have and ideas which is +/- as per the below ?

The KM5D repair manual is a bit vague on this since it seems to assume you would never need to resolder those wires, but this thread seems to have the info you need...

http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/how-to-replace-the-slider-assembly-on-the-km-5d_topic70627.html

Comparing the info from the manual and the forum thread to your picture, I beleive that the blue wire should be connected to the pad closest to the ribbon connector shown in the picture and the pink connected to the pad closest to the metal bracket.

as its looks to be the power supply for the LCD screen backlight, the thread above shows which cable is +/- so sorted on that, just need to get the soldering iron out now.

i've found 2 other wires which look to have worn through, but they look harder to do as i think they are to do with the steady shot, also they are just thin copper wire. but more on them later.

np m8 , Be shore you use a pair of tweezers to hold the wire in place when you soldering it, and disconnect the plug so you be shore you don't damage the TL backlight with static energie from your iron

Just be careful


PS: Use LEADFREE solder!

just a quick update, its slow going, not had much time to start the soldering due to christmas activities and such, but the coming sunday our lass is at work so going to get all my crap out and make a start.

also got in another 5D which has the Antishake start up test issue, but least i can work around that with the "let it sleep" method, and still use it.

so if i can't fix the first properly i can use it as spares, and maybe steal the Antishake out of it,

The thing is, I'm retired, but have the same problems ,...to much to do so little time , I have also a spare KM5D wich is totaly dead, but cosmetic nicer then the working one, I wil find the time next year (probely during the winter) to get it disassembled for parts.

But first thins first, I now have a new project the KMDiA200 with a AS problem

For your problem camera, I might have the solution for you in the document I'm working on, so the planning is, to finish this also this winter, but wil be next year I'm afraid

nice, I was wondering about the other KM digitals and whether the AS mechanism is the same? thus maybe cheaper to buy one of them and swap over.

may have to see if there is a km parts catalogue to see if anything is interchangeable
