Canon 1Dx Lubrication (AF) Recall. What to expect
« on: July 26, 2014, 06:20:33 AM »
I just sent my camera in for the recall that was done in June of 2013. I was curious of what everyone's experience was with their cameras once they got them back

No problems before or after.  They cleaned the sensor, too, and did it all in under an hour while I waited at the Jamesburg, NJ service center.

No issues here either. Also took 20 minutes before the camera was returned to me. I'm not a cps member.

There was a serial number range, but I think it was basically all of them up until the recall announcement.

My 1Dx WOULD NOT allow me to use my 70-200 mkII anymore because it absolutely would not lock focus and let the shutter fire

Thanks Neuro. I'll double check after my bustrip.

One more Q, are we talking about this?: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer?pageKeyCode=prdAdvDetail&docId=0901e024809120b7

Sent mine in at the time - they cleaned the sensor, but it has oil spots again now. I have also cleaned the sensor myself several times. I love many things about this body but this bit is frustrating. I guess I will send it in again for cleaning if I can't resolve it myself.  :(
