1D Mark 2

Hey guys quick question!

My canon for some reason won’t turn on!
The batteries are fully charged but no luck.

Any ideas?

Double check that the card door is fully closed.

So I checked, the door is completely closed, no luck.

Re: 1D Mark 2

Unfortunately I have seen this before Smiley Sad.  It is probably through and not worth repairing either.  They are great cameras.  I have/had all three versions (II, II n and 2s).  I still use the II n upon occasion.  My Mk II died exactly like you are describing yous.

However, Midwest Camera will repair it if they have parts and if you so desire.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, even less and less other stuff.

Re: 1D Mark 2

I’m curious though because the batteries are off brand.
And my charger seems to be acting weird, almost like I charge it and they say they’re full and I can unplug them and it acts like they’re empty?

Also, when I put a dead battery in the camera turns on and shows the empty battery flashing.

I've had issues with 3rd party batteries not charging in Canon chargers (as you describe) and 3rd party battery chargers over charging genuine Canon batteries. So now I only charge Canon batteries in the Canon charger, and 3rd party batteries in the 3rd party charger.

Re: 1D Mark 2

I’m going to try and see if any of my friends have this battery. It’s a slim chance but I’ll try everything before I say bye lol

Someone said it could be a loose screw inside the camera that’s making it think it’s a dead battery also?

Re: 1D Mark 2

This is what you said............

 

"My canon for some reason won’t turn on!

Now is this true or not?  I have used the 1D Mk II in all its variants for a long time so I am pretty familiar with it/them.

 

You need to have a real deal fully charged "Canon" battery.  You need to try it that way.  It is the "only" way !  No 3rd party junk.

[ Edited ]

Investing in a Canon original LP E19 for your "not sure it will work" 1D Mark 2 seems risky and not a good investment.

 

Try borrow one from friends or ask local repair shop to check it for you.

 

It doesn't make sense to pay around $200 for a battery to test your camera. An used 1D mark II can be have for as low as US$260 and it comes with a battery and charger. (check online store selling used camera)

 

 

Good luck.

 

update : the battery is NP E3 (LPE19 is for newer 1D series) It costs US$136 when you buy from Canon online store.

Re: 1D Mark 2

First off. Why would I make a false statement?

Secondly, the top screen turns on only to flash an empty battery.

Thirdly, I will check the local camera store and see if they will check it for me. I’ve worked with them a lot in the past with other things and they are extremely helpful.

Thanks!
