i am the OP of that thread on POTN.
my 1DX is still at canon... and I got a brand new service loaner 1DX from CPS while my 1dX is in service..
Have had the brand new service loaner 1DX for the past 7 days....
it worked fine without any error for the past 7 days in any kind condition... However, this err 80 thing happened last night.. when i was going through menus and setting....
the camera kept giving me about 20 err80 in a row so i had to give up , shut down the camera and went sleep...
This morning.. when i get up , power on the camera... the err 80 went away.. and it worked just fine for the past few hours...!!!!
Jesus ...I have had enough of this err....and this is the second 1DX body that i use that's having this err80....
what the heck is going on.... my 1DX is at Canon waiting for parts...and now the service loaner 1DX started to have the same err 80....
I shot my first 300 frames with my brand new 1DX and a new 85LII today and had err80 appear 6 times telling me to power down camera and reinsert the battery back. I am using Sandisk Extreme Pro 32gb cards.
Anybody else seeing this. Someone on POTN board seems to think its temp/humidity related. I live is S Florida...
Moody, same exact thing with me. 85L II, Sandisk Extreme Pro 64gb (slot 1) and 32gb (slot 2).
I first saw the error after only a handful of photos but I thought it was because I had the LP-E4 from the 1D4 installed. It mostly happens to me when I am reviewing the photos on the card. If it happens once then after I turn off the camera and re-insert the battery then it will most likely happen again. But if I try to snap a few pics before reviewing again then it seems to go away for a little while. I'm still talking with CPS, they want to send it in for repair but not even sure if they can find the issue. I didn't have any errors yesterday in the studio so I'm going to hold out.
...Images look to good to give up the camera for a small glitch.
First shot was at ISO 4000, second one was shot using Automatic point selection and iTR

This is my first post here! I've been a longtime lurker, and finally decided to join, as I've been enjoying the site. Thanks for all of the good info here!
Here's an update to the above link: The OP/user at P.O.T.N sent his new 1DX into Canon (CPS) and apparently he was told that his Error 80 was due to a bad Printed Circuit Board (PCB) that would require a replacement part from Japan. So, it sounds like a hardware issue. There seems to be quite a few people reporting this issue, so perhaps Canon got a bad batch of PCB's, or this occured in the manufacturing process. Lets hope for the best!
@Mark, Great shot by the way!
