I have a serious issue with a EOS 1D Mk II;
yesterday i was working with that camera and a couple of lenses (frequently switching); one of those was a 70-200 IS.
Suddenly the AF stops working, along with the shutter release and all the leds within the viewfinder.
On the top screen was blinking the "Err 01" code; I thought it to be a lens/body communication issue; but even dismantling and mounting back the lens, the problem was still there.
Tried to clean the contacts. Nothing
Turned Off/on the camera, removed the battery. Nothing.
Changed the lens, tried to release the shutter without any lens. Nothing again
There was a lot of discussion of this when the Mk II was new. Many people "fixed" it doing just the things you did. Also, some reported that mounting the lens on another camera "fixed" it.
IIRC, in the end it ended up being a lens issue. IS module. Canon can repair.

With the camera in the M- Manual mode, pressing the ISO button on top and rotating the selection dial in front of the shutter release button should allow you to change. If this doesn't work you may have a circuit board that needs repair. Royal camera service is Hanover Park IL is a good choice. They fix my pro cameras including my 1Ds II when I had it.
With black images and you cannot see shutter action, it sounds as though you have a shutter failure. There should be a "clean sensor" setting in the menu that will hold the shutter open until you power off the camera. If the shutter still doesn't open with this feature then the shutter has failed and will need to go in for repair.
The first thought I had come to mind was the shutter has failed but, the Canon 1D MK II shutter is capable of 150,000 actuation. If you feel this is not possible then another thing you may want to look into is the memory card needing to be cleared of pictures and formatted in the camera, always format your memory cards in the camera. The Canon 1D MK II has two memory card slots it is possible to have one card undersized and it's run out of space, the camera will not automatically shift to the unused card it needs to be done manually through the small screen on the back. This just happened to me while in a portrait shoot the battery died to the point it wouldn't even show the setting on the top LCD screen or the viewfinder. I replaced the battery and continued to shooting. The camera had been set on RAW but after the battery failure it began shooting RAW+ s jpg. If you had the camera set for jpg images and the battery failed as it did mine then it's entirely possible that the camera defaulted to small jpg files. Okay last suggestion and possible the most important. The Canon 1D MK II with original firmware installed is capable of working with a 4gig memory card Compact Flash or SD, if you have installed a larger card and just attempted to shoot with it without formatting, the camera will refuse to cooperate. If this is the case and you have installed a 8gig memory card(s) for example first try to format the card and if this failes then you need to go to the Canon site download the updated firmware for that camera and do an update. Everything will be good after you do this, when I did the update for mine there were seven updates one of which corrected the limitations on the memory card size. If the lens contacts are dirty and the camera is getting poor information from the lens you would I think receive a code 99 so not receiving any code of fault I'd say it's the card.
