I purchased a used 20D for $99 as a backup to my 40D.
Its in good shape, but the icons on the mode dial are worn off.

I looked around and the mode dial is part of the whole upper assembly.

Does anyone know if it is possible to purchase just the dial, or if it is possible to replace just the top of the dial w/ the icons?

Thanks in advance

I remember seeing some replacement stickers on a Japanese website. I'm just having a Google now.

Although you could always print your own. BTW, that's a very cheap camera :confused: is it in bad shape or something?

Check the Bling thread in accessories for replacement stickers.

I picked it up at a garage sale this morning.
Its in good shape, normal wear and tear biggest issue being the mode dial.
Shutter has 15k actuations.

Probably not, but here is how I found it...
Search craigslist for the word Canon every day... Be patient... Get very lucky.

Call up Canons parts department if you want a complete replacement dial. You'll have to open up the camera though as the control dial is held in place by a set screw.

I had similar issue a few years ago. I just printed jpg of the top of the knob and glued it on top. Price was right and you can make it as pretty or crude as you need.

Just make your own marks on the wheel. All you really need is M, Av, Tv, and maybe P.
