Recently my back up camera, a 1Ds mark ii stopped powering on. All three of my batteries are fully charged and none seem to work, still looking for my AC adaptor to see if that works. But in case it doesn't are there any shops around the country that service this model or does anyone have any ideas as to what could possibly be wrong with it.

Thank you

aside from the battery being low, there's not a lot you can check. Make sure the CF door latch returns fully (they can stick) and also that the battery latch is properly closed. Both these have a power interlock switch that can shut the camera down.

On the repair front, Canon I think no longer support these, but there is still a number of spares avail so it might be possible to get someone to look at it - there are fuses on the DC power board that could be replaced by someone with PCP repair skills. (CG2-1255-000 is the DC/DC board number if it helps the search...)


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter bolted onto the sensor:

No way a dead date and time battery would cause the camera to no function would it?

On a recent trip I started getting error code 99 on my 1Ds II. Fortunately I had two other bodies with me, it was a week-long event. I replaced the time-date battery when I got home, and have not had any problems since. Related? Maybe, or my 1Ds II just didn't like Texas. I think a two-pack was 11 bucks, I put one in my IIn for good measure. Happy to see all my settings were still there after the swap.

I would definitely try a new 2025. -Brian

I wouldn't say no way, but is pretty unlikely...
