Canon 514 XL-S Question

Post by dbairdmi » Wed Mar 30, 2016 5:26 pm

Hi,
Im looking to replace a motor in the 514 XL-S.

I have two and they are both behaving the same.

They power on with batteries and the light meter is responsive.
No other activity. I think the motor is shot, and I'm looking for direction as to what model the motor is
And/Or where to find a few spares etc.


Thanks.
-Dan

It's possible you can get your motor serviced if it's something repairable, but it's not worth it for that camera. Just buy another camera, they're cheap enough. Or buy a better camera and get it serviced.
