Today i was trying to click a macro image with my Canon 100 mm macro and 70D in live view and using an external flash when my camera suddenly went dead. I think it gave an err80 before completely dying out. I have searched over the net and found two causes:
- Motherboard and PCB fried; that is going to cost a ton of $$
- Some sensors on battery compartment being fragile and some issue with sensor position (tried rectifying the position but no help)
Last option is to go to service center and get help but wanted to know if anyone in this forum faced a similar issue that might help.
- Camera gives no indications of being alive.
- Viewfinder appears dark when battery is not inserted.
Camera worked perfectly for last almost three years and I have taken it to places. It has never been dropped. Feeling sad as its dead now hopefully it gets back in shape after servicing.
