Canon 7D Menu timeout?

Hey,

 

So the other day I was shooting and whenever I pressed the Menu button the menu would show up for a second on the LCD, but then the screen would go blank before any menu changes could be made. Litterally the LCD screen went blank within one second. I took the batteries out, waited about 30 seconds, put the batteries back in, and it seems to work fine now. Has anyone else ever experienced this? Is this something I should worry about?

Were any other buttons being pressed?  You can cancel out of the menu mode simply by half-pressing the shutter button (just as an example).

No, I'm sure I wasn't pressing any other buttons. It happened probably twenty times in a row before I decided to try taking the batteries out.

Re: Canon 7D Menu timeout?

Hello AllNoAll,

The issue you are describing is not one typically associated with normal operation of the camera.  It's possible this was a one time issue, but with the camera having done this over twenty times in a row, I would err on the side of caution. 

Therefore, I am recommending you send Canon the camera at your earliest convenience.  You can set up service through the main Canon web site, linked here
