Canon 1Dx Problem
« on: January 28, 2013, 01:18:48 AM »
I am having this problem with my Canon 1DX lately.It seems that it cannot turn on.I have to take out the battery first and reinsert it before it works.It seems also that this only happens when I use my 1DX with a the Canon 70-200 F2.8L IS MKII lens.Wi other lenses,it seems to work well.Would anyone know on what is causing this problem?Does it have to do with the connections?
Thanks in advance.

Tried to clean the contacts on the lens and body? Perhaps just some dirt on the contacts.

Dirty contacts can certainly lead to a malfunctioning camera so should clean the contacts.

However, IMHO, if it was only a lens contact problem it is unlikely that the camera will switch on after reinserting the battery - so if cleaning the contacts doesn't work, try using a different battery.

FWIW, I have no issues with that combo.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Now,it's working again.Maybe,I observe it for a few more days and if the problem resurfaces,I 'll have my camera and lens seviced.
Thanks a lot guys for all your replies.
