My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. Please favorite or bookmark this page press CTRL+D, so you can return here if we get disconnected. Unfortunately this is a known issue with the Canon 60D series. There is no consumer fix for it, it needs to be sent into a Canon-authorized repair facility. There is one in Ireland, called Image Supply Systems. Their contact information is +353 1(###) ###-#### ********@******.***

Wes :

You also find information on the Canon repair process here:
If your camera is still under warranty, it should be covered under the warranty. In fact, they may be aware of this issue and *might* be doing the repairs at no cost (it's worth asking). Try giving Canon a call at +353 (0) 16 990 990 and see if they will. I realize this was probably not the answer you wanted to hear and I can sympathize, I have a Canon 60Da myself and I imagine it'll only be a matter of time before I face this same issue myself.
