Canon Xt Broke CF Pins..

So i came across a free Canon Xt but there was an error of course. thats y it was free.. after later research and looking at the camera closely i found that some of the CF Pins had been bent/broke. Can any1 Fix this or sell me the piece? I know this should probably be in the want to buy thread but id figure it would be seen faster here. I want to use this as a paintball/action sports camera so if anything gets messed up (hit by a paintball or dropped) i dont have to worry about it being my new canon xs. please help me. thanks

Send it to Canon, they'll take it and fix it/clean it, you'll never know it was broken.

If you send it into Canon they'll probably give one to you.

By give one to you he means make you pay for one.

Send it to Canon.

Umm, i wouldn't try it even if you thought you could do it

The CF pin unit is soldered directly to the main circuit board an all Digital Rebel models. Canon does sell the CF pin connectors separately from the main circuit board, but CF connectors have 50 pins, which are separated by less than 1 mm. Special equipment and a high level of skill are required to replace the CF connector. This is a job for an experienced CAMERA technician. Even those with experience in other types of of electronic repairs should not attempt it. It is very easy to damage the main circuit board, which costs almost $200 for the part alone.

It takes more time to reach up and tap the 1 key then it does to type one.
