Re: Canon 70D died

Hi.  So, like everyone else on this forum listing my 70D did the err 80 notification and bricked itself in June 2018 while i was in  in Malawi Africa working with a NGO.  To say I was unhappy would be a critical understatement.  I notofied my hubby to research the err80 so i knew what to do when i returned to the States.  So, I called Canon immediately after Customs while waiting for my next flight and they said $275 for diagnostics and & $265 ish for new Motherboard.  Major frustration!!

So the camera sat in my bag and in November 2018 I resolved to sell ALL my Canon equ, which is substancial since I've been shooting Canon since 1976 and a pro sports photog for several newspapers in Ohio. 300 2.8, 400 2.8, EOS 1Ds,  you get the idea, not a casual shooter.  The 70D was my easy camera for travel.

I knew this was a major issue for many 70D owners.  Yesterday I decided to search and see of there was a way to fix the camera w/o spending over $500 with Canon. and I found this forum.

I spoke with Jeff today and Canon is going to fix the camera and take care of the issue.  I was speechless. WOW!

I want to thank this forum for the info and Canon USA for making this right.

Yes, my friend. I was forced to pay $450 two years ago. But now Canon is taking responsability. In Brazil hundreds of 70D mainboards were changed, with no charge for the customer.

Re: Canon 70D died

I'm in Australia and after being quoted $940 to replace my motherboard, I found this page. With a screen shot of the comment about Canon repairing for free I sent it off directly to Canon. They replaced the PCB for free. No communication, or advice at all, just two weeks later it arrived on my doorstep, fixed.

Thanks folks.
