Hi,

Would you be able to View Recorded images / Video's ?

If yes, this is a Faulty CCD Sensor. This is a Common Problem on almost all the Brands like Sony, Kodak, Canon. There were Certain Recalls by almost all the Brands ONLY for this Defect. You need to Call Canon to Confirm the same whether this is Under Recall or not. If not, you could negotiate on the price for Repair.

For more, I have an Old Article :-

http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

If you are Seeing the Same Problem, when you play Saved images/ Video's, then this is a Bad LCD Panel. You need to get it replaced. To be really honest, if this is the Case, better to Purchase a New Camera as the Cost to Repair this would be more than $100.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Have a Canon 5d mark 2 . Was using it today all worked ok. Then it suddenly wouldn't review photos or bring up the menu . It shows black screen but when turned off it says the normal sensor cleaning


Hi Dear!
According to your problem note said wouldn't review photo or bring up the menu. You have to check all taken picture if there is blank, black, or corrupted picture file(cause won't able to see the image) are come from mirror box sequence control unit failing. At the beginning of this problem can not be noticeable, later it causes more and more blank image come out. However, if you don't have any blank image, then a loosen screw piece running around and touch circuitry in side could be serious. These two symptom are common and manufacturer's engineer design defect, but they won't tell you. Other then that you have no problem on your camera like last statement "when turned off it says sensor cleaning" This is camera's default setting that whenever you turn off camera will clean off sensor by itself.
Hope You Luck! A Professional Camera Clinic Guy!

Sometime there is defective main picture control process! But Canon won't say about it! At least you can try to convince them. (I want you shoot continuous a lot and video shooting) If it happen, then your main process board defect!

When switching camera on there is a blank screen


In settings, you might have switched off the image for when the camera starts. Turn it back on. Also, if that doesn't work, try deleting some photos or change the sim card or the battery itself, not charge it.

No start up sound and no image display


good day! you mean that you no longer can''t hear any start up sound every time you are turning on your gadget? you try clicking on the settings if there is because there are some instances that the tune is muted. in regards with the blank screen photo, there might be something that is obscuring the image screen. for more inquiry, please keep me in touch. thank you!
