6D shutter button not focusing or releasing shutter

ShutterPilot
Apprentice

Hello everyone!

I was shooting with my Canon 6D and suddenly shutter button stoped working. I was not able to focus, when button was half pressed and release shutter when fully pressed (even in MF mode).

 

At first I thought that my shutter had gone bad, but I was able to focus and relase shutter to take a picture with my smartphone connecting through Wi-Fi.

Then I thought that maybe the shutter button itself was broken, but when I press shutter button in live mode, it just goes back to regular. So the button must be working.

 

I have tried  reinstalling new firmware and reseting settings to default, nothing did work.

 

I would appreciate any help and tips, thank you in advance!

It isn't a FW issue so that won't help. Call Canon 1 (800) 652-2666

It seems like canon had a way you could do a "hard reset", but I don't know how to do it.  Canon can help.

I would suggest going into the Orange “Custom Functions” menu, which is found towards the far right.  Select C.Fn.III-5, press [SET], and reset the custom controls back to defaults by pressing the Garbage Can Icon.

Thanks for suggestion!

But sadly resetting controls didn`t help.
