I have a 6 month old 80D. Randomly in use the camera turns off by itself. Sometimes itll turn back on if i press some buttons, but most of the time i have to turn it off then on again. The battery is charged but im not sure whats causing this. ANyone have any idea by any chance?

 

This youtube video demonstrates the same issue.

Are you doing anything to turn it back on or is it going off and on on its own?

We flip it off and on again. But sometime when it turns off. We can just press some buttons and it will react again.

There is a timer that shuts power off and extinguishes the display. Let me find it. 

 

The LCD is on a 4 second timer. Does that seem about right for your camera's behavior?

If you're referring to the auto power off, we've disabled it 😞

Just because it may blank the screen, what makes you think the camera is turning itself off.  When it does go into low power mode, which is not the same as turning itself off, it may take a couple of seconds for the camera to fully wake back up.

 

I have not heard you describe anything out of the ordinary.

Well I believe it is because it does it while the camera is recording as well. My wife uses it to film her YouTube videos. So idk why it would do that while she's recording you know?

A camera turns off while shooting video because it thinks the sensor is in danger of overheating or because the 30-minute limit has been reached.

Yes but it never reached thirty minutes. And also, it's not overheating because it will happen very fast. About a few minutes into recording

I would try a new Canon battery.
