Hello today when I went to use my camera today I notice the "plastic right above the mirror" had came loose I was able to place it back and the camera seen to work fine now... My question is has anyone else with a canon body had this problem? Should I be concern about this, should I send the camera back for service?

I never any problems with this camera before and it wasn't dropped..

Look in the manual under "focusing screen". What you saw may just be access to the replace-able focus screen holder/bracket.

EDIT:
The 1DX does have interchangeable focus screens. See page 334 of the manual.

This happened on my 6D. The focusing screen holder dropped down with a lens attached to the camera. When I tried to remove the lens it would not turn enough to get it off. Shook the camera around some and was finally able to get the lens off. The screen had come out of the holder and was jamming the lens. The screen still works ok, but huge scratches in one corner. New screen should be here tomorrow. First time this has happened and I have one of the first release 6Ds. Not sure how this happens since you have to pull the tab to release the holder, not push it.

Ok what I am going to do is try shooting with the camera and if does it again just send it back to canon.. But I had no damage just the plastic reflector came down, I was able to get it back on with no problem.
