    And is there any compatible low vibration fan in the market? I could try a different fan.

    The four black screws. The fan is retained inside the black housing using a foam-like material. The fan should be firmly held in place; if it is loose then it may move around and cause problems.

    I had the same problem on a STX. I replaced it with the same fan to keep it the same but it vibrated also. I ended up using a piece of 1/2" thick Sorbothane and longer screws between the camera body and the fan. I cut the Sorbothane to resemble a gasket. It took out all the vibrations.

    Thanks!

    This does seem a common issue. Actually I joined a remote team and their 16803 started to show similar issue, and they suspected it was from fan too.

    I will give it a try. My last resort would be getting a low vibration fan.

    Doug,

    I will check again.

    Could you also provide the spec of the fan? I am looking for alternative on the market.
