7dII firing rapidly when set on single frame

Two-year-old 7DII is suddengly shooting bursts when set on one shot / single frame.

 

'Bout ready to send into Canon unless I get a quick magical answer.

Does it make a difference if you change shooting and/or drive modes.  You could try resetting the camera, before calling Canon.

Reset your camera. Clear all settings. That is the first thing to try when something doesn't do as it is expected.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and several lenses!

Just to verify, you understand 'One Shot' is a focus mode, not a drive mode.

 

Your camera can be set to 'One Shot' and still be in a multi-frame drive mode.

Thanks to all for various observations and suggestions.

 

This is very embarrassing, but I want to stop wasting people's time (since I don't see how to take the post down).

 

I very seldom use the HDR function.  But I did recently . . . for got about it . . . picked up camera to shoot something in garden, and was perplexed by the multiexposures (which depending in the mode, sounds a little like a burst).

 

When you're my age, your cognition is sometimes slow to catch up with reality.
