Question about Canon EOS-5D 12.8 Megapixel SLR Digital Camera w/ EF 24-70mm Zoom Telephoto EF 70-200mm f/ Autofocus L
I removed the CF card the other day to put another one in - have done this many times. However now, there is power (can see on display) but camera will not zoom or take images. I replaced old CF card to double check in case new one was faulty - but nothing. Can someone help please...? Battery is fuly charged, CF door is closed. I even changed the lens just to try something different - nothing!
This sounds like your release switch is faulty. I have repaired several of these 5D cameras with similar strange symptoms. Basically what happens is the first switch on you release assembly cracks and breaks thus making continuous contact. When this happens it basically locks up your camera. The solution is to replace the release switch assembly. The repair should not cost you more than $150.
Hope this helps.
