my 5dmk2 is producing pink/half/digital noise jpg's

My 5Dmk2 just went mental during a shoot, it started producing pink jpg's, and then just digital noise ones, then half normal half pink,..and then a batch of normal ones etc. I know this is not uncommon, does anyone have a definative diagnosis please?

My "definitive" diagnosis is that it sounds like a bad CF card.

 

If you try shooting RAW+JPEG, are the RAW files OK? If so, then the RAW-to-JPEG conversion circuitry may have failed. But my money's on a bad card.

Ill try that now, cheers.

Just tried it, and the phots are fine in both JPG and RAW. but it stopped my shoot earlier, then was fine while i was testing it after, untill I messed with it again an hour ago, and it was all pink and 'digital white/pink' jpg's. I have a wedding in one month, I now cannot trust it not to do this during the wedding. it isnt the CF card, I tried all three of my cards at the shoot. I have shoots planned over the summer too, cant really afford to rent one for three weeks.

thats what i was getting ?!

That sort of behavior typically preceeds a bigger failure. If it is intermittent, worst after shooting for a while but recovers after "cooling down" then I suspect a power related problem. I suggest sending it in for repair now. You'll have it back before the wedding.

Hello Everyone,

    I have the same problem on my 5D mkII, the pictures are pink and I need to turn off and turn on for images became normal again, someone can tell me wich part I need to replace ? If this problem is in motherboard (mainboard) or in CCD (sensor) ???

Thanks for help me
