Discussion in 'STX and STXL' started by CraigNZ, Mar 26, 2017.
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.
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.
I will check again.
Could you also provide the spec of the fan? I am looking for alternative on the market.
The fan we use is readily purchased here:
