p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · 1Dx - anyone having error 80? Firmware fix coming?


Just happens out of the blue when you try to trigger a shot. Camera locks and you have to turn off and on to clear.

Found this post on another forum.....anyone heard anything else? The error is annoying when it happens.

Hmmm. Sounds bogus to me. I've never heard of this problem, and it's never happened to me. OTOH, I was surprised just now to find that the v121 firmware is actually avaiable for download on the Canon Canada site. OTOH, the attempt to download fails with the good old "Error 404 -- Not Found" error message.

My 1DX is registered with CPS Canada, including automatic updates when any new support is available. I've received nothing from CPS about this.

It's not on the Canon USA site at all. Something's not right ...

Here is the link to Canada, took me a while to find the page, well hidden!

http://www.canon.ca/inetCA/serviceDetail?m=load&id=45&sid=7&mid=2200903&type=S

I am going to wait until a few others load it up, but I have had about 6 of these error 80 lock ups.

Yes. I know. That's what I was talking about in my first reply. The download option at that location does not work.

had err80 this weekend, on taking the camera for the first time out
24/1.4 attached, not sure what triggered it but if i am not mistaken even after turning it off the card led was ON, and i had to remove the battery to reset it

lets hope the firmware will be out soon, i am also interested on the fix for the image size (on a test body had few jpgs out of the blue, i always shot raw)

There was some talk on the Sportsshooters forum about 1DX's getting random err80's. I don't think anyone ever came to a solid conclusion as to what actually caused it.

My shutter count is around 40K right now and so far I have not had a single error. (knock on wood)

the new version of software, the link is now gone on the website......maybe too premature? I guess stay tuned...

The disabled v121 link has been removed from Canon Canada.

The US link works for me.

I just received the rental 1DX body and there is error 80 listed as Sept 20 '15.
What do I do now?

I had one randomnly last month too, out in the middle of a shoot on a sunny day. Mine had just gotten back from Canon for a new shutter. Then once more earlier this month.

That Err80 is related to a low power condition. Usually, oxidation/corrosion (not visible to the naked eye) on the contacts generates a slight bit of resistance and causes the resistance to go up just a bit. The PCBs in the X are troublesome, and seem to be really sensitive to slight voltage drops (or overvoltages which seems to blow the power PCB).

I sprayed DeOxit gold G2 on a set of fiber swabs (for cleaning fiber optics) and polished the battery compartment contacts. Leave a bit on the contacts and run the batteries in and out a few times.

Haven't seen the Err80 since.

ERR 80: SHUTTER
DESCRIPTION: This error occurs in the following conditions.
When the CAMERA self-check system detects that the shutter has not been fully charged (ready to shoot).
When the CAMERA self-check system detects that the shutter operation sequence has not been completed correctly.
When the built-in flash cannot be recharged after the E-TTL preflash but before the main exposure.
REMEDIAL MEASURE: Try clearing the error by turning the main power switch OFF and then back ON.

Actually, on the 1DX, ERR30 is the shutter (last thing I saw before mine blew up). Error 80 is:
Err 80: Electronic control or image malfunction

It's a power "brownout" to the camera, due to battery contact oxidation, weak cell in battery, or bad/loose battery connection.

That old ERR80/Shutter is from old generation bodies.

I've had this phenomenon occur on my 1D2 and 1Ds2 cameras without any error message. The red LED stays on, sounds like the shutter half cocked, the camera won't take another shot. The only way to clear the condition is to remove the battery. Upon inserting another one, the camera makes a sound like it just finished the shutter cycle.

It happens when the battery levels get low on my older batteries. All of my 1D2/1Ds2 batteries have expired to the point they last about 30-50 shots before the fully charged batteries die.

When the batteries were newer and good, I never really encountered the problem.

Thanks. I did not use the camera that much (<5500 frames) and there were no errors.
