Canon 5D won't turn on

Hi there,
my Canon Eos 5D, which I bought new and is a few years old, would not turn on yesterday evening. I used the camera in the morning just fine, but had no response at all that night. Tried 3 different batteries, recharged one anyway and tried again, took off lens and put back on, changed memory card, etc...What should I do now? And is there somewhere in New York City where I can take it so I don't have to send it to Canon?
Thank you so much for your time!
Avery

    I have had my Canon EOS-5D 12.5 MP Digital Camera for one year and this problem has happened to it twice. I have just sent it back to Canon for the second time. I'm hoping that I will be informed what the problem is. It is not a good feeling not knowing that the next time you take the camera on a trip if it is going to work. I will pass on any information I get from Canon.

    I have this same issue currently from an ebay purchase. Worked about 2 sessions, now I have a bum camera and I am supposed to shoot a wedding in a month. I am afraid that I will not have this camera ready in time. What was the cost of the camera repairs from canon for the new power supply?

Sent and received my Cannon EOS-5D from Canon and they replaced the power supply assembly. It had shorted out. They did not tell me why it shorted out so I'm left with the question of what is/are the event(s) that caused the power assembly to short out. I don't have a warm and fuzzy feeling that the problem has been fixed.

My 5d mark 11 camera screen appears error20 and it wont remove


Hi

Error code 20 on a Canon EOS 5D Mark II indicates there is a hardware problem with either the mirror or the shutter. The only solution is to have it repaired - or if the camera is reasonably new take it back to your supplier and get your money back.

Hope this helps

I keep keep an error 20 message with a canon 5d markii. It says to take out battery or turn camera on and off. This didn't work.


If the problem still happens after multiple resets contact the place you bought the camera from and see if you can get a replacement. If the camera is still under warranty canon will try and repair your camera and won't replace unless it is unable to be fixed.

Try and fit Canon EFS Lens to EOS 5D Body


As far as I know, you should use L series Lens to fit Full Frame Canon Camera (5D & 1D).

That would be no adapter, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

Help with Canon EOS 5D camera


when you use the full auto mode, the body take jpeg images in sRGB mode. And it create a different folder for those, but perhaps your computer is tune to get THIS folder. So when you leave the full auto mode, the 5D create a second folder for new images. Try to open directly the 5d volume on your computer (in windows, configuration panel, on a mac, it mount automatically on desktop) and go into DCIM folder. see? there is two folders, aleluia.

The camera has no built in memory, like all DSLR's. If you shot pictures without a card, the pictures were not saved.
