Solved! Go to Solution.
I JUST ran into this same problem, my heart sunk in a panic in the process.
I removed the battery - I GUESS not long enough because that didn't work at first. Saw this forum, left it out for 10 min, also I saw on REDDIT a person removed the memory cards, then reinserted them.
Whatever the case, this issue is gone. (Whew...no idea what that was about!)
Anyway, thanks for the post, sorry this happened to you also.
Well that's a lousy thought - that it might - more like will come back? I saw this issue on multiple forums..a lot more than I expected, so this main dial is no question a known issue.
I've had this camera 3 years and 1 week and this is the first time I ran into this. No rhyme or reason. This is my 3rd Canon, I did have a very known problem with my 7D - which I still have. Battery communication error about 5, 6 years ago. (Lot of other peopple had the same problem to the point I felt this was defect.
And even though the camera still worked, the LCD display screen on top next the shutter was mostly blank. Of couse i can see setting through the eye piece, I was missing info on the LCD screen. That was not a cheap fix either!
I hear you know, my VERY first camera was a Nikon in the early 90s, a much older D70s DSLR in 2005. I ended up getting a deal on a Canon 7D in 2009..just never looked back. I never had a single problem with Nikon.
