40d – SPT szervizszoftver

Végre eldöntöttem és megvásároltam az SPT szervizszoftvert a Canon 40d vázhoz (csak ehhez használható, mielőtt valaki kérdezné).

Ennek köszönhetően a következőket tudom elvégezni:

– fókuszkalibrálás (akár minden fókuszpontra külön-külön) – ezen a módon a törött tükrös 40d vázakon a betett donor / ragasztott eredeti miatt megjelenő fókuszhiba megszüntethető.

– az autofókusz egyébként elmászhat magától is (kopás miatt), de érdemes a leggyakrabban használt optikára ráhangolni a vázat. elvileg 20 optikát képes kezelni a főpanel (külön értékekkel), de ezt még nem próbáltam.

– fénymérőkalibrálás

– expószámkiolvasás / tükörműködtetés számának kiolvasása (nem azonosak)

– hibakódkiolvasás / törlés

– főpanel stb illesztése a vázhoz – pl panelcsere esetén muszáj, vagy CMOS-csere esetén

– záridő korrekció beállítása (rövid záridőknél az egyes zárak között már különbség van)

Ha tehát ilyen problémád van, keress meg nyugodtan. Számlával, garanciával (mármint az elvégzett munkára vállalt garanciával). Főként olyan esetben érdemes hozzám fordulnod, ha nem konvencionális technológiát kell alkalmazni, úgymint vágás, ragasztás, esztergálás stb.

Egy gép javítására azért érdemes akár a használtpiaci árával összemérhető összeget is rákölteni, mert a sajátod, ismered az előtörténetét. Használtan vásárolt gépet pedig közvetlenül a vásárlás után érdemes elvinni egy szervizbe, egyrészt tisztításra, másrészt vannak olyan lehetséges  belső hibák (beázás, kilazult csavarok) amelyeket minél hamarabb orvosolni kell.

Jut eszembe: használt gépet mindig szerződéssel vásárolj, és legyen benne, hogy az eladónak nincs tudomása rejtett hibáról. Az expószám nem minden – de 50.000 expó és 500.000 expó tényleg nem mindegy egy váz életében.

Megjegyzés: bár a 40d vázból már nincs ennyire fiatal, elmondanám, Magyarországon a Canon gépeket garanciaidőben tudomásom szerint kizárólag a Camera kft. szervizelheti, http://www.camerakft.hu

    Hello János,
    the backlight is not working and I don’t see any kind of image, so that’s why I think there is a power problem, but I don’t know where to find the fuses. If I had a service manual I could measure power supply voltages, but I suppose you don’t have a service manual.
    About the 40D, I think I will send him to you although fright and repare will cost me another 100 euros, but it is still more than the SPT software.

    Hello János,
    I’m already working on an other camera with a problem. I got a Canon 500D this week where the shutter was broken. I replaced the shutter, but I got no picture or even some info on the screen.
    Although the screen is black, the camera is working and takes pictures. If I connect the camera to my PC I can control the camera and change settings, take pictures and use live view.
    The buttons on the back are working also, so it’s just that the screen stays black.
    Can there be a fuse blown out, or can the backlite of the screen be broken. Do you have a service manual of the 500D? Service manuals are hard to find.

      If the LCD works, but the backlight not, You should see a very dark image on the screen.
      Another problem could be a bad flexcable. (the pitch s very small, and if the connector is not perfect, the cable can stay betweeen two contacts.

      By the way, was is with the 40d? I have written a letter to You , but no answer at all.

    János,
    Thanks for your answer. This is exactly as I thought it would be. I already had downloaded the demo of the SPT software and had been looking to the adjustments. I think there is a good solution for the problem because I still have the old motherboard. Although it is not possible to save pictures on the CF-card any more, I can connect to my PC and can control the camera and also take pictures. If you can download the settings of the old motherboard and store them back to the new motherboard, I think the problem is solved. If it is possible for you to do this, I will send you the camera where I have put in the old motherboard and include the new motherboard so you can change boards after downloading the data out of the old motherboard and put the data back into the new motherboard. I already payed 50 euro’s for the “repair” , but I will try to get this money back if you can fix the job.

    Hello,
    because this text is in Hongarian it is difficult for me to understand, but as you are talking about the SPT software I have a question about this software. I have a Canon 40D where I replaced the motherboard. With this new motherboard I have a fat frontfocus. Because I didn’t want to spent a lot of money buying the SPT software just for this one body I brought the body to a Canon Service Centre in The Netherlands for adjusting the AF alignment of the body. I got it back with the same problem. Their advise was to bring in the body together with a lens. I did this and when I got the body and lens back, this lens was sharp, but all my other lenses still had the fat frontfocus. They told me that it was not possible to allign the body to give a sharp picture with all my lenses.
    I mailed this experience to SPT(Society of Photo Technologists) and they told me to go back to the service centre and ask them “to do their job right”.
    I complained at the Dutch Canon Services & Support Europe about their Service facility where I brought my Canon 40D.
    Their answer:
    The problem is caused by the fact that you changed the motherboard. This can give front or backfocus on the existing or also new lenses.
    The only solution is to bring in your body and all of your lenses, to be shure that the body is aligned so you can use all your lenses.
    When with a new lens a focus problem occurs, it is not enough to bring in the new lens with the body, otherwise there could occur focusproblems with the existing lenses.

    I’m loosing confidence in Canon support service.
    Does anybody have experience with this problem, or solved a problem like this with the SPT software.

      Hi Bert,
      the theory, which was given to You by the Canon service is beautiful, but false.
      Think on the following: You go to a shop, buy a brand new camera, and 5 different lenses. Do You have to adjust them one by one to your camera? NOT. The camera has benn adjusted in the factory to a master lens, or the middle of the tolerance field. This means, that of course, each lens can have a small difference by autofucus – but normally they all will work acceptable with the camera. In the SPT software there is a possibility to adjast all the AF points one by one, or together. If You disassaemble the AF system, the mirror or You change the mainbord (which stores this data), You will have to adjust ALL of this point one by one (and dont forget: on sensor point can have 2 or more sensors behing – vertical, horozontal, 2 obliques…) – using a test lens (normally a 50 mm F1,8). If You have only a wear in the camera (for example the secundary mirror weras a little bit it’s seat), there is enough to adjust all the sensors togheter – so You will have a shift on every AF pont and every sensor with the same value.
      To make the last setting, takes 5 minutes. To make the first, 1-2 hours.
      If You want more than just an average value, You can (theoretically) give different offset values for 20 different lenses. But this is an exception, the dataregisters for this settings are normally empty (by a new camera anyway).

      How much was the price of the calibration in Nehterlands? To send me the camera and back is about 50 EUR, as we now, plus some money for the work.

      Anyway, changing the motherboard can cause for You many other problems too, like exposure, shutter timing, flash timing .
      I will send You the help from the software, You can than see, how it works.

    Szia János!
    Szabad tudni a szoftver beszerzés körülményeit? Csak úgy odaadták vagy “könyörögni” kell érte. stb.
    1DsMKII-m és 5DMKI em van és már nagyon unom a Camera Kft-s küzdelmet.

    Köszi Zsolt

    • canonrepair says:

      Szia,
      nem egyáltalán nem kellett érte könyörögni. Csak úgy simán ki kellett fizetni az árát 🙂
      Az SPT tagság 150 USD évente, a szoftver meg minden géptípusra 250 USD.
      A következő amit megveszek, az mindenképpen az 5DMkI lesz – de ahhoz előbb a 40d szoftvernek ki kell termelnie az árát.

      • Varga Zsolt says:

        igen, rosszul fogalmaztam. Szóval ki kellett fizetni az árát és simán meg lehet venni. Nem kell mindenféle hókusz-pókusz titoktartási meg miegymás szerződéseket aláírni?

      • canonrepair says:

        Semmi extra dolog nem volt. Mint amikor veszel egy akármilyen szoftvert. Amúgy a program a számítógépre van licencelve (netes regisztrációval), nem lehet egyszerűen átmásolni máshová.

Opinion, question?
