Brought my 1Dx to Canon NJ's new repair center in RIdgefield Park this morning for the Mirror box lubrication or replacement recall. I was also having sporadic over exposures where if i set the f stop and iso to a certain range, on some of the shots the sutter speed would change drastically to a slower speed and overexpose the shot. Happened in either A or M modes. I had written a note explaning this to them and gave it to the receptionest however he forgot to give it to the technician. About an hour later after performing the mirror box and sensor cleaning service the tech came out with the body and asked me if i was having problems with the exposure on the camera. I said "yes" just like the note stated. He then informed me that he haden't seen the note. He said that he just wanted to make sure that the service that he had performed on the camera wasn't the cause of the problem. When i told him that that was one of he reasons for bringing the camera in, he was relieved that " he" haden't caused the problem. He then proceded to tell me that when he hooked the camera to the computer to check all of the settings, the exposure part of the program wouldn't change anything. He saw that whatever controlled the exposure settings in the camera wasn't operating. So, I left the camera today and hopefully after dissasembly they will be able to trouble shoot the problem and repair it. I also told him that on a few shots once in a while i would see evidence of the shutter possibly failing because it would leave a slight white border on the right side of the photo frame. The camera at this point is just under a year old and only has 31,000 clicks. Anyway i'm sure they will sort it out. That's why i always choose to drop my stuff off. Jamesburgh was a 2.5 hour drive and the new facility is only 1.25 - 1.5 hours away. well worth the trip. I'll keep everyone informed once i know what failed and what they had to do to repair it. By the way the new facility has a great waiting room and the counter person is also nice to deal with. Unfortunately only CPS members can bring their gear there.
