"... to hard reset cameras with built in battery."

 

I don't have a 6D but generally it takes several weeks of non-use for the internal battery to discharge. I doubt you discharged it.

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

But he didn't discharge it through non-use. The whole problem was that the camera wouldn't stop trying to do stuff. The takeaway was that he apparently managed to switch the load to the built-in battery until it ran out of power, forcing a hard reset.

The built in is just a 'keep alive'.  It doesn't run the camera.

Paula,

Did you have to reset the time and date?

Yup! Sorry,,,, I obviously wasn't paying attention to the name. No excuse for the implicit assumption either; we have lots of good female photographers (including my wife, Martha).  Smiley Happy
