Page 41 of the 30D manual shows the menu option "Sensor Cleaning"
It states 'If battery is exhausted you will not be able to proceed further.' - That means it won't even enter cleaning mode.

The 40D manual shows the same thing, except they call it 'Manual Sensor Cleaning' but the menu option is also 'Sensor Cleaning' on page 131

The ID MKII N manual also shows a 'Sensor Cleaning' menu option for whoever tried to discredit one of my previous posts.
It looks like you took the advice of someone here instead of what the manual told you.

My camera once stopped me from entering cleaning mode because I only had 1 battery in my grip and it was almost dead. I would be in the same boat as you if I hadn't read the manual.

Yowzer. That hurts, but get that bad boy fixed and get your shooting on in time for the holidays!

Thanks for the update. Hope it isn't that much to replace my 20d shutter when it goes out eventually. Glad you have had such a good attitude about it also!

Well, I was expecting $500-600 based on shutter replacement costs I've observed on other cameras, so "only" $355 sounds pretty good to me!

Sorry about the problem, but glad you posted this here as a reminder to everyone.

Let me get this straight:

ACK AC adapter kit is what Canon recommends using...

But...

We're concerned that there may be a dip or loss of AC power during cleaning?

So instead we might...

Plug into our computer's UPS to insure we'll have a few minutes time to recover, in the event of a power failure during the exact moment we are cleaning our sensor...

Except we shouldn't trust a UPS either?

So, perhaps we should all just live with dirty sensors until the Canon Hydrogen Fuel Cell Auxiliary AC Power Source and Sensor Cleaning Kit comes on the market (product code: ACK-HFCAPS-AC/SC Mark IIIN)?

If the power fails during sensor cleaning, or the UPS fails to work properly, might the shutter repair be covered by homeowner's insurance?

And, what if lightning strikes?

Good grief.

I've been using ACK Adapter kit since I got my 10D four years ago. It works on my 30Ds, too. In fact, it works on all cameras that use BP511/512 type batts and I think adapters are available to use it on the other Canon cameras using other batteries.

Thankfully, I haven't had and brown outs or black outs or lightning strikes during any sensor cleanings. Whew!

Ok, so this is probably a stupid question, but if you have the camera plugged in to AC power and still had the battery in it, wouldn't the camera just switch to the battery in the event of a power failure?

Unfortunately the AC adapter replaces the battery.

Oh BTW....Dust Aid does not recomend using their product with cameras that have a self cleaning shaking sensor (glass filter in front of sensor gets cleaned)

I've been taking photos for ovwer 40 years and I found I had to read the book pretty closely when I got my first DSLR. I was coming from a Canon T90 and thought I wouldn't need to, your misfortune makes me very glad I did.
I was bit appalled at "Got my wife's Dust-Aid and proceeded to clean the sensor" - is that VACUUM CLEANER!!? I've been very wary of cleaning my sensors and follow the instruction minutely.
Hope it doesn't cost a fortune.

Editorial addition: Ok, I hadn't got as far as the explanation of what Dust Aid is when I wrote the above. I'd be very wary of using anything that touches the sensor, maybe I'm too much of a fusspot.

Dang $40 for dust-aid? And there are only 12 pads. It'd be nice if they sold replacement pads.

I had to check and Dust-aid's site says in its FAQ that it's ok to use .


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.
