I cannot push the EVF inside the slot anymore 

Jaap in another thread told me to  Remove the piece of fluff that is stuck in the interface

but I see nothing inside, does someone had the same problem ?

 

thanks

The flash unit or accessory shoe looks bent out of shape. It looks asymmetrical and the left hand side is a bit raised from the body. Have you used this camera with  a flash unit recently?

but you are right it looks asymmetrical

This is what mine looks like:

 

 

I think yours is warped. One possible explanation could be a blow to the flash from the left hand side.

The scratches were there when I bought it. They were responsible for a nicely reduced price.

even your slot doesn't look like mine, yours is totally open and mine has something inside --> ok Wetzlar  and by the way I shall ask for a RF calibration

I have that thing (horizontal strip) inside, but it is set back, not flush with the outer frame. I assumed your shot was well lit, and so showed that strip inside. Pop's may be less well lit, and the strip may be in shadow. I couldn't see any obvious differences between yours and mine, except yours looks considerably more battered (well-used).

This will be sorted out - hopefully without too much waiting!

 

My experience is that RF calibration is more or less default to any repair/changes/adjustments to the body - so you can expect to get back a calibrated body. The latter is one of the beauties of using the M. All (digital) bodies I have owned have been calibrated. Its really frustrating to have a finder out of alignment, and the repair time can be frustrating as well. When things align, however, the M sings...

I have mine since March 2013 and I use nearly each day

The slot in yours definitely has a foreign object in there. It looks like the flat connector board from the EVF pin. I would look in all your EVFs to see if one is missing the board. If I am right, you will be able to remove the board stuck in the camera with tweezers, but do this bit-by-bit, and carefully!

 

Hope it works out!
