10D Hotshoe Problem

I recently noticed that my pocket wizard wasn't firing my lights. After playing around with it for awhile, I noticed that the hotshoe plate is loose, and when I rotate the camera for a vertical shot -90 degrees it doesn't fire, I rotate the camera +90 degrees and it fires. If I take a horizontal shot and press in the +90 direction it will fire. I don't see any screws to tighten, so curious if anybody has had a similar problem, and what did you do to fix it ?

I've used the camera for a year with a 550ex flash and haven't noticed any problems like this, but wondering if the flash units weight possible loosened up something internal to the camera.

Thanks.
Randy
