my Canon 80D cannot take pictures with a C1-type shutter cable. When I click the remote shutter button, it does focus adjustments (like a half-press effect) but never releases the shutter.
I've tried with multiple cables and to be sure it's less to do with the cable, I got a brand new one from Edelkrone at BH, yet no luck.
I've made a recording at https://youtube.com/shorts/aVofGN7vbnA?feature=share
Any idea how to fix this? Let me know. Thanks!

Are you sure camera is achieving focus? Set lens at MF and see what happens.

Thanks for your response. The video I posted was made with manual focus. When in manual focus, it just removes some details from display but do not trigger shutter, just like doing a half press.

I just looked at the video again. It says ni card in camera. You probably have that protection set in the Menu.

No, I've not enabled that protection, verified in the settings. Btw, I could trigger from shutter button on camera.

Since the camera shutter button works it looks like all is pointing towards either a defective remote or some other setting on the remote that needs to be changed.

Yea, looks like some settings got messed up. I did reset all settings though, yet the same behavior. I've used different cables, different remotes nothing helps.
It did work a couple of weeks back when I kept reinserting cable but the same trick isn't helping anymore.
I thought it must be something to do with the cable, so got brand new from Edelkrone but is not helping either.
