Have you switched to live view?

Using Movie Mode

On the EOS 5D Mark II movie recording is only available when live view mode is activated - there is no dedicated movie recording mode on the camera. Before you can get going movie recording must first be activated under the Live View/Movie Func. set menu, where you can also select the resolution for movie recording. Once enabled simply press the set button on the back of the camera to start or stop movie recording in live view mode.
Auto focus during movie recording works in the same way that it does in normal live view mode, meaning that if it is activated in live view mode, it is available during movie recording (press the AF-ON button to focus). Since all sounds are recorded during movie recording, and any in-camera sound is magnified (including the aperture changing), using AF with the internal mic is not recommended, neither is using in-lens IS. Unlike a conventional camcorder there's no continuous focus option, and to be honest the focus is so slow that you would never use it whilst filming.
Just like Canon's more advanced Powershot cameras you can interrupt movie recording to capture a still by pressing the main shutter release, and movie capture recommences one the still has been taken.
It is advisable to have at least the basic level of information displayed for movie recording, as this gives the user feedback on the aperture, shutter speed and ISO being used by the camera. Exposure is fully automatic in all modes except manual; as you change the exposure level using exposure compensation - or the scene brightness changes - the camera will adjust the aperture and ISO (no matter what ISO value you choose the camera will switch into auto ISO mode once movie recording begins) - you can check what's happening with a tap of the shutter button.

Can I bring this back from the dead? For some reason, even when enabling Live View for both, Stills and/or Video, I still cannot seem to get live view to work? Not sure what to do :(
