    Hi chaps!
    URGENT UPDATE !!! My WC DSMC2 TOP PLATE (no battery board) just started making serious troubles!
    Just discovered when I'm pushing/pulling or giving any force to top handle fixed to WC Top Plate (low shot or just carrying camera) - it makes unwanted signal problems (noisy image, artifacts on RED LCD/RED EVF) !!!
    Checked contact points - everything looks ok!
    4x screws fixed firmly WC Top Plate to DSMC2 body.
    I believe the problem related to WC POGO Connector inside TOP PLATE - loosing contact with any pressure applied to the Plate which can lead to RED LCD or EVF damages !!!
    Be careful guys as it could be very expensive repair :(

    No difference even if Top Handle is fixed on rear of Top Plate :(

    Why is this an URGENT WARMING?

    have you contacted WC for support? I can't see how losing contact would damage the EVF...are you sure you don't have another issue here?

    Greg - there is separate thread on forum regarding fried LCD's and cameras:

    http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthr...Easy-Top-Plate!

    If you have bad luck repair will be quite expensive

    Checked everything, Red POGO adapter works with no issues.
    When the handle is fixed on rear it's less issues but it was tested with lightweight Cooke s4i/mini
