My Canon 5d Mark II doesnt shoot in single or continuous mode but does in self-timer mode

So the shutter/mirror freezes if in single or continuous mode but if I change to self timer mode, the camera takes pictures as expected. I have tried reloading the firmware and changing the cf card and have tried shooting without  a card altogether but same behavior.

Do you have mirror lockup set?

My thoughts too.

Silent mode?

Remove both batteries for a hard reset.

Hei, I have never used the mirror lockup mode but this might be it. I just have no clue how it got enabled for I never have had any use for it. Is there any way to disable it except to clear custom settings?

 

Thanks.

The only way to access mirror lockup is through the custom settings. You don't have to clear all of them, though, just the one pertaining to mirror lockup.
