I tried everything I could to fix my canon 60d that just would not turn on. (I think it got wet or something) anyway the way I fixed it was that i read on a forum somewhere that you should toggle the ON and OFF switch like 100 times when the battery was out then when you put everything back in SLOWLY move it from OFF and ON until you see a sign of life. For me my camera turned on after many months of not working in between the OFF and ON button for a split second.. in that moment i knew i was gonna fix it! I turned the camera off again and keep toggling the ON and OFF button as fast as I could and every time I turned the camera on it was turning on closer to the actual on button. Eventually I had to secure that the ON button was being pushed to the side so the camera would remain on and after leaving it ON for a while it didnt need to be secured anymore and my camera was working! == Turn off camera, removed everything, toggle the ON and OFF button like crazy, put everything back in, slowly move the OFF button to ON and watch for signs of light, repeat several times until you do(for my it was the light from card holding that flashed orange once, nothing else was working) ==

Hi, just wondering if you ever resolved this issue with your 70D. I seem to be having the same problem and am wondering what it will cost me to have it fixed.

Hey, so the update.
After finding my receipt and realizing I was 3 months over my 1-year warranty (also purchased in another country), I called Canon. They explained to me that the issue was not covered and I was outside my warranty and could send it into their repair center for a fee.
I wrote them a long letter explaining my usage and everything that'd happened as well as what I was hoping they could do (fix it for free). After a week I got an email saying that they'd accepted my job and were fixing it for free. I took a lot of time with the letter I wrote them and was so happy with their response of doing the repair at no charge. It seems my plea did not go unheard.
I'm sad to say none of the videos/blogs/forums helped with my issue. I was told by Canon to even try some of these methods I'd heard about, but nothing worked. They ended up replacing the battery connector I believe. Apologies I don't have more, but hate when people post and never reply or update again.

Well thank you so much for your reply. That is so great that they did it for free. I've had my camera for about two years now, but I take great care of it, so I guess I will just have to see what they can do for me. Perhaps I'll try writing a letter since that worked for you, worth a shot.
Thanks again, glad everything worked out for you!

I'm from Ukraine and I had same issue with my camera.
It was almost new (2-3 month) and one of the time I saw err70 err80. It also freezes and start heating up... I tried everything - to take out battery, on-off.. then it shutdown completly. I couldn't turn it on.
In service they said that main board and pcb power board is dead. So I paid a lot for new parts and settings.
Now today after few month of work I get other problem, screen and shutter is not working, but camera can be turned on. autofocus and small settings screen is working , also memory card holder is not blinking at all...
In photo I'm Nikon user of d700 for many years with no problem, but I liked reviews of new autufocus of 70d and I wanted to give it a try for my video shoots... Now I'm very sorry for this. I will take it to the service one more time and will sell it next day... This camera is a peace of junk, I see a lot of problems all over internet that people have with it.

This camera needs a recall CANON!! My less than 1 year old canon 70D that I took care and pampered so much already shows problems. Like what most of this people said, my 70D froze while I was recording a video. I sent my 70D to canon to be repaired and the problem is the PCB. It will cost me $459 to get it repaired, are you kidding me!
