30 is a malfunctioning shutter. As far as I know it has nothing to do with the main board. Call Canon service!

And bingo. After your replies I wonder if my camera is working with the 4th new shutter. It was maybe just the 30th shot or so after the replacement of 4th shutter and 6.000 something overall and ERR 30 again. I do not know what to do with this bull**bleep** actually. I have written almost an essay with my issues couple of months ago, nothing they replied. I tried again via canon site and fingerscrossed for their reply. I will never by a Canon again

Well of course that is ridiculous. I put 80,000+ on my 5D Mk II. Original shutter and many other pro photographers do like wise. The guy I sold it to is still using it. If you have put 4 shutter assemblies in your 5d2, there is something wrong with the guy installing them.
BTW, "I will never
by buy a Canon again"
" I tried again via canon site..."
What site? If you did it here, this is not the Canon web site. It is s public forum owned and operated by Canon. Canon won't respond to you here.

"The problem is not necessarily shutter."
This is why I suggested the failure is from the person installing the shutters.
"The guy installing is a 20 year experienced Canon technician."
This may be true but if he was a real deal Canon employee you would have received a warranty and guarantee. When you send a camera to Canon for repair they check the entire camera. Not simply replace the shutter assembly. The 5D Mk II is a fine camera and it is a durable camera. Thousands of them out there are working just fine and yours can too.

"...why would I send the camera straight to Canon when I could pay half price..."
I think you have your answer. Canon will get it right. Otherwise you get what you get.
About the fact it is not a USA Canon camera, this is a public USA Canon forum. Is it not reasonable to assume that it is a Canon USA camera. It appears yet another reason to make sure you get true real deal Canon USA products.
