100% sure. I checked the cleaning bay as well, hoping it may be hidden in there.

I think the CVF is just straight up broken; I can't see anything but a out-of-focus blue screen. So, I mean...even if the slider was there, what would I get? An in-focus blue screen? The screen is blue no matter what the lens is directed at.

OK Travis,

I hope you get your camcorder fixed. I also hope that I didn't offend you by posting the picture but the reason I did it was because sometimes when I'm going to adjust the focus on the CVF I'm down on the hatch/hole with my fingers looking for the slider.


Regards,

/Bo

No offense taken, it was actually nice to see what the slider does look like (as I am without one). Thanks mate.

How much do you guys think it will cost to replace the CVF? I know it's hard to estimate, but I want really just a ballpark figure of what I'm gonna have to pay to have Canon fix it before sending it for servicing.

No one but Canon can tell you what it will cost. They'll contact you with the total amount and seek your approval before they actually perform the service.
