Question about Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera
For some reason my camera has decided to freeze. The back screen no longer works and the shutter doesn't function. Strangely enough the top LED display is still working and I can operate all those controls. The only icon which doesn't show up is the battery icon. I've obviously tried changing and recharging two batteries but to no avail. I'm suspecting it's probably an electronics malfunction or lens mount issue preventing the camera from functioning and so I'll take it in for repair but I thought I'd ask the question on the off-chance I'm going completely mad and missing the bleedin' obvious!
I had this same problem, turned out to be a bad CF card.

Is the mirror jammed do you think? Can you activate with the lens off. It is worth getting onto Canon Technical Support, just in case this is a known issue[A Free replacement camera ;-)] Do bare in mind that sending cameras away for repair is a gamble. Think packing/shipping/insurance/Upfront checkout fee and return of camera- unrepaired because of lack of parts- This is something well known in the repair business there are in general no major parts available - because of the way cameras are made The repair[non] cost could be in the region of £100 or so money better put toward a new more advance model But try out Canon first.
