Busy ... please wait ( 700D )

Hi all

This morning my 700D seems to have bricked itself. A few seconds into recording a video clip I got these awful coloured artifacts which covered the screen, they stayed even when the switch was off and I had to take the battery out for it to turn off.

In addition Live View goes black and the mirror flips back down after a few seconds with the camera inoperable and "busy" flashing in the viewfinder. After I take a photo with the card it is perpetually in "busy". I honestly don't have a clue what has gone wrong.

If I do take a photo with the card in sometimes it wont even give me the "busy" notification and just make the camera inoperable, if I turn it off the red writing LED stays on and it beeps at me if I open the card slot.

I've tried 3 batteries, all the SD cards I own which is about 7 or 8 with every combination possible with the exact same results.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks

What specific cards are you using? If they are too slow, that would cause issues with video recording.

 

Were the cards initialized prior to usage?

This seems to imply that the camera was working properly.

I think it is time to call Canon. 1 (800) 652-2666
