5D MK II Error - Pink Frame
« on: April 13, 2013, 09:55:11 PM »
Ladies and Gentlemen!

I have a 5d MK II, bought from ye Canon refurb store, and the other day, it randomly started making frames like the one attached. When I would take the picture, it would simply capture whatever the previous image was, but with a pink cast over it. Removing the battery would help, but, then it randomly stopped doing the error. A week later, it started doing it again, for no clear reason.

Then, tonight, it started doing it again, for no clear reason! Here is an example frame. It seemed to be doing it a lot more tonight than the previous time...

Just to be clear, is it pink when you look at it on the LCD screen? If yes, then return it asap. If no, then it's likely a software problem on the computer.

This can be an occasional issue with Adobe Camera Raw (and usually manifests as a pink cast over everything).

Not sure if this helps, but it's worth looking into.

I wonder if this is the camera I returned a few months ago for doing just this. After a couple of failed repairs it was agreed that the motherboard was ****ed... I am enjoying the replacement 5d2...

Weird... it being the previous frame makes it seem like it's trying multiple exposures a'la the mk3. Wonder if they put the wrong firmware on when they refurbed it.

It's making it's way to Canon... It's like sending a daughter by mail for surgery by hands whose masters' eyes I have never seen...

I did, several times, and used other cards as well... The problem persisted...

It would have otherwise looked like a corrupt card but the image being magenta points to other problems that are not related to the card. Send it back and get a new one!
