Canon EOS 70D won't turn on

[ Edited ]

Today I was doing my friend's daughter's first birthday pictures when out of no where the camera just froze up, said "error" (on the LCD control panel, not the screen). I tried to turn it off, but it didn't go off. I took out of the battery and put it back in. At some point (I was flustered and can't recall) the camera turned off, but the memory card light stayed on. It eventually went off, but then the camera wouldn't come on at all. I tried doing some of the tricks online-turning the camera on and off, taking out the battery, taking out the SD card, checking the SD slot and battery spot. Nothing works. :/ 

I've seen many people ended up spending $400+ sending it to Canon to have this (or at least something that caused the same fate), but I'm not certain it's even worth it when you can buy a new body for $800.


Did anyone have an easy resolve? Did you have to send it to Canon? How much did it cost you?

Sell it as is and buy a 80D
