After you download the firmware file, you have to extract the .fir file from the file archive. Copy that file to the root directory of your memory card after you format the card in the camera. Use a card reader to transfer the .fir file to the card.

I have tried and it didn’t work

"stacked at loading" Do you mean something happened to interrupt the update process? 

You could try connecting the camera with a cable to your computer and using EOS Utility to update the firmware.

You can download EOSU 3.14.30 from this website: Canon Support for EOS 70D | Canon U.S.A., Inc.

Do not load any version later than 3.14.30.

Thanks for your responds . Yes . During the update process it went off . I checked the battery and seems to have died though it was fully charged. I inserted a new battery. And fix in the SD card as well. It automatically turns on and  Shows  firmware  loading … after some seconds it goes off. Sometimes it freezes on screen with firmware loading .. until I take off the battery Then it goes off. Non of the keypads work. Please I need help . I asked some one he said I have to change the board which is too costly. 

Unless that someone is a Canon tech I would not rely on it. If you send it to Canon they will diagnose and give you a repair estimate.

As many others have already mentioned, call up Canon to schedule a repair.   It may indeed cost a lot to repair, but at least you can get an estimate and see if you want to proceed with that or use that money towards a new camera.

One last question before sending it in for an estimate, what is the exact name of the firmware file that you are using on your SD card?

Oh man this is a serious situation. Do as JH says. It happens not very often but it happens that the FW update for whatever reason goes south. If that is your case there isn't anything you can do to recover it. I doubt Canon services the70D any longer but a call will answer that. 1 (800) 652-2666

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and less lenses then before!

As of this writing, we do still support and service the EOS 70D.  Hope that saves you a few moments!
