My Canon EOS 70D started having a white line on almost every picture that I take. If there is less sun, the line is not as bright. And at night there is no line, even if there are bright lights (like from a concert).
If I turn the camera the line turns with it.
Could it be that the shutter is broken? But normally a broken shutter shows black lines or black pictures, right?
I hope someone knows what it could be and how much would it cost to get it fixed.
Proper repair would be a new shutter assembly. It might have a bit of debris stuck to a shutter blade causing the issue but even removing the offending contaminant wouldn't result in a shutter I would trust after this failure. So it needs to go to Canon (or a third party shop if Canon no longer services the 70D) for a new shutter assembly.
I agree the shutter has failed but I don't think repair is a good option. A replacement shutter and labor will likely come very close to or exceed the value of a 70D. Perhaps a good chance for that upgrade to a mirrorless current model.
At any rate before repair get an estimate.
Thanks for your help. Oh man, that’s what I thought. That it will probably be too expensive to fix.
Now my camera also shows ‘error 20 A malfunction with the mechanical mechanism has been detected’
I will get in touch with Canon, if they are still able to replace a shutter and and if they can tell me an estimate.
