I acquired an aftermarket Bresson focusing screen for my Nikon D5100. I very carefully followed the instructions to remove the old screen. However, I find that I can not get the wire retainer to latch again. I put it behind the latch, it pops out. Before I put my tail between my legs and head for the repair store, can anyone suggest another course of action? I can't even get the latch to stay put with no screen in place at all.


I solved the problem.

When I went to lock down the screen, I forgot that the wire bail needed to go inside the latch. I tried to latch it by having it go outside the latch, where it very sensibly declined to stay.

    If you think you found a solution, you can accept it yourself I guess.
