Your camera almost certainly has a shutter fault and must be professionally repaired.

Replacement and recalibration is a not a DIY job. Expect to need a new shutter assembly; it's not cheap but is still cheaper than another SLR.

If you're very lucky, the repairer may find a simple fault with the existing mechanism and offer to fix it but if you depend upon your camera for a living then be absolutely sure that it's as reliable a repair as replacing the shutter assembly. If the fault has existed for more than a couple of dozen of shots then there will already be adverse wear to other elements of the shutter assembly which may either cause it to fail again soon or will require it to be recalibrated.

I hope that my answer has been of assistance, please take a moment to rate my free answer.

How do you clean the Shutter inside a Conon 1D Mark II ?


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.

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.

Diagonal black line across the bottom right corner - canon eos 1D Mark IIN


Most likely the shutter blind is sticking and not getting out the way when you take a picture. It will need a service.

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.

Horizontal streaks on pages


Streaks at 2.82 inch intervals: Horizontal marks at this interval are the result of a mark on the fusing roller of the printer. In some cases, these marks can be cleared up by running a cleaning page through the unit. Laser Printer Cleaning sheets can be purchased at your local printer/office supply store. If the marks persist, this can indicate a more serious problem with the fusing roller that would require service attention.

Streaks at 3.74 inch intervals: Horizontal marks at this interval are the result of a mark on the image drum of the printer. There is no way to repair a damaged photosensitive image drum, so in the case that it is scratched or otherwise damaged, the entire CRU (toner/drum cartridge) would require replacement to clear up these marks.
