R6 will no longer automatically clean the sensor at power down

I was customizing my buttons and making a few changes to my R6 (and of course did not back it up), well something I did now gives me an ERR 06 and says it can not clean the sensor. I have tried "Clean Now" "Clean at Power Off", and "Enable". The last one was a bear to finally clear. Still no good. Camera has latest version uploaded. No other problems, but would like to get it back to sensor cleaning without having to do a complete reset.

This would appear to be an issue with the camera self cleaning system.

I looked on Canon Europe website and searched for the Err 06 and found this…

Err 06

Description

The sensor cleaning is not possible.

Resolution

  1. Turn the power switch off and then on again

If the error message is still showing, then it is necessary to deliver or send the camera to an authorised repair centre.
