First the defective mirror box assembly, then We had to send our new cameras in for the 'fix' which was nothing ore than a Band-Aid via lubrication- now camera won't even power on, and apparently it has to do with their 'fix', either that or the 1DX is prone ot power problems right from the get go-
Photographyonthenet site has a thread called "1DX will not turn on... unless..." in which several 1DX owners are having the same issue as I'm having- mainly that our cameras have stopped working- stopped powering on after we've sent our cameras in for their 'mirror box assembly lubrication fix'.
Now my camera is 2 months out of warranty, the stinking camera has stopped working completely- I've tried removing and reseating the battery, tried another battery, reseating several times- nothing!
Now I have to spend even more money just to get my $7000 1 year old camera to work? Swell-
Any other 1DX owners noticing any power issues? My camera began by mysteriously shutting off when reviewing photos in the LCD- I'd scroll to a photo, look at it, and like 4 or so seconds later, the camera would just turn off (without actually turning off the power switch-) nothing would work- I'd have to reach down and physically turn off the power switch, and turn it back on again- and the camera would work for awhile- a few days or so, then it would happen again-
Well today, the camera completely quit working. I got it to work one more time by reseating the battery, but it took one more photo- then it crapped the bad completely and won't turn on no matter what now-
This post is kind of a rant, but it's also a heads-up to other Canon !DX owners who have sent their cameras in for 'the fix' for the product service announcement back awhile ago regarding the mirror box assembly- Not saying your camera will die like ours did, but if you begin noticing weird power issues like I described, it could be an indication that your camera is going to die in near future and need to be sent in for expensive repairs-
