Light Seal Install – Olympus XA3 XA4
Before you do anything, please read general removal and installation instructions here.
Tech Note The original black paint used on the inside of the back cover may start to flake off when removing the seals whether using a solvent of any kind or not. Though time consuming, we found the best way is to remove as much material as possible by carefully pushing the residue up off the metal with square toothpicks cut at a chisel point. Then with a small amount of Naptha on a Kimwipe clean the remaining residue with 1 or 2 swipes on that area. Now the film back should be prepared for new seals.
Next, take all of the seals out of the kit and lay them out on your work area. This kit includes,
2 x 1mm – channel seals, camera body
1 x 2mm – latch seal, back cover
1 x 2mm – hinge seal, back cover
Hinge Seal, back cover. Install this seal hinge side of the camera body, centering it between the top and bottom edge of the door channels with the cut out for the strap oriented properly.
Latch plate channel seal, back cover. Install this seal centering it in the channel next to the door.
Door channel seals, camera body. Install the upper and lower camera body channel seals starting at the hinge side of the camera body, working from right to left. The upper channel has the counter actuation lever. You will need to install this seal as close to each side of the counter lever opening as possible, cutting the seal as required.
