Recently, the compact flash door on my 1Ds has intermittently failed to open when operating the release lever. Sometimes it will open right away as usual, other times I need to finesse it open. This worries me in that there will come a time when it will fail entirely and I will be stuck without access to remove or change out CF cards, likely in the most uncompromising situation.
Are there any others out there that have experienced this and is there a fix other than sending it out for repair? I understand that wear and tear on this mechanism (it's over 3 years old now) has no doubt reached near end of life, but I'm heading out on a big trip the end of next month and would like to have this fixed soonest, if not by then.
Any feedback would be appreciated.
