Sorry, I've been away the past couple of days. Once I can get in front of my camera (it's across the country right now >_<
I'll try some of those things out and update you guys. But I think it's the camera. I haven't tried another battery though. We'll see I guess.
But yeah, rapid battery drain even in "sleep mode" is the issue.
Also, this is my 666th post. Just throwing that out there. Dun dun dun.
I had that for about 8/9 months. It was on the original Canon battery I had. My Canon battery was dying in hours from a full charge. I bought an after market battery, ( it cost about half what the Canon version ) the error code continued, I had no battery level indicator in the viewfinder either.
I kept meaning to do something about it, just never got around to actually doing it. Then, all of a sudden, everything came back to life and its been fine ever since ( about a year now ). It holds it charge, the battery level indicator works now with the new battery.
A theory of mine is, the original Canon battery dies and somehow, does some damage to the cameras electronics. From what I've read on these posts the common denominator in these threads is the dying of the battery. Perhaps that's why it rights itself in so many cases after a prolonged period...............
Anyway, good luck with yours, I hope it sorts itself out.
