So I bought a dead 5D,thinking it would be a fairly simple fix (and it may still be). When I originally looked at it I knew it had bent pins in the CF slot,and I assumed it has a blown fuse. Replaced the card slot and checked the fuse - turns out the fuse is good. Replacing the card slot didnt fix it. I have voltage inside the camera. Tested some connections on the PCB that has the fuse,got 8 volts. No water damage inside. The only thing I can think of is one of the 2 micro switches may be bad or the ribbon for those switches may be bad. The only other questionable thing is when I was removing the PCB ribbons to get the card slot out I was unlocking the tab the wrong way - kept trying to slide the locking tab down when I should have lifted it. As a result the locking tab is a little boogered up,but it still locks the ribbon down.
Any ideas what I may be missing? I got some great help from the 5D thread,but this seems to be where I can go no further.
Appreciate any insite!!
