Question about Canon EOS-1D Mark II Digital Camera

1 Answer

AF and shutter release failure

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.

Live View doesnt allow operation of 2 sec delayed shutter. How do I fix please?


You use Live view to get an accurate focus then turn live view off and then once 2 sec delay has been selected (this can be done before going into Live View) release the shutter.

My Canon 1D MkII suddenly started capturing images completely black. File sizes are smaller 2, the black images are only 2mb. Could it be possible the data is no longer getting recorded to the memory...


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.

Canon EOS-1D won't save pix to CF card. G.


The E99 message usually ends up being a shutter box that needs to be replaced. The 1D shutter box should be good for 100,000 images or more, you can probably find the estimated lifespan on Google somewhere.

If you can"t save pics to the CF card then you might have a bent or broken pin on your CF card reader. Look down into the CF slot, does it look ok?

We are an online digital camera repair shop but we haven't done any 1D cameras before.

My Canon 40D can't handle bright yellow and reds. It blurs the detail and overly saturates the subject (flower close-ups) - so that the bright red poppy is overly saturated and lacks detail even though...
