Well I have canon EOS 6d and firmware 1:1:9 something like this
Problem is that when I start using burst mode or click images quickly using viewfinder after 2-3 pics it starts showing busy and then error and then card
Then stop clicking pictures also when I turn it off its screen still remained on
When I remove battery and try to start it not starts actually
Only lens works when I put it on m focus
Nothing works instead of this plz tell 😭😭😭
Thanks a lot Peter ❤️
But after 5 minutes when I started recording video and when I viewed the video it again hanged
Could you please tell me the best way or I have to go for servicing
And what I have to say then ?
From the manual:
Perform low-level formatting if the card’s recording or reading speed seems
slow or if you want to totally erase data in the card.
And if that doesn't work you buy a new card. By default the write speed of 6D is around 42MB/s. No need to buy the fastest card in the world.
It sounds to me that you may have a couple of possible issues:
The symptoms that it stalls after a few shots, or a short period of video recording seem to suggest an issue with the file saving pathway. There are two main elements in this. The easiest to fix is to look at the card you are recording to. It may be the card is too slow for the image size or is damaged. Also, if you have one, using a Micro SD card with an adapter is not recommended - always use a full size card. If you get a replacement get a Class 10 card from a reputable maker and vendor - there are lots of faulty or counterfeit cards out there.
The second possibility that strikes me is one I experienced myself with a brand-new camera. The buffer memory in the camera failed. This accepts the files processed by the camera and holds them until the much slower SD card can accept the data. If the buffer fails, then the speed is reduced to that of the memory card performance - which is relatively glacial. That will require a service and you would contact Canon for that on 1-800-OK-Canon
Before anything else, however, I would suggest resetting the camera back to the factory defaults in case some obscure setting is fouling things up for you.
First and foremost, you need to try a different memory card. As mentioned by others, only use full size memory cards. Use a major brand name like Lexar or Sandisk. Only buy them from a reputable camera dealer. Be sure to format any new card in the camera prior to first use.
Finally, only use the memory card in the camera. Do not use it in other devices, except in a card reader.
