looking at picture

I have taken a photo about an hour ago, and when I went to look at the screen says busy, the camera has done this before however has only stayed on for a few seconds l, this time however it has stayed for over and hour. I can't look at photos or turn it off.

What can I do !?

Did you happen to set the camera to bulb? You may just have to press the shutter button a second time.

Possible if she has taken a bulb picture for about one hour in duration and used noise reduction for long exposure.

 

Just pressing bulb once without keeping it pressed will just take a picture.

I had used the camera a few seconds before and hadn't changed anything, I was able to take photos afterwards still but was not able to see them

My mistake. Other cameras I've owned had one press to open the shutter during a bulb exposure then a second press to close.

 

However, accidentally turning on mirror lockup can mimic the same thing. First press locks up the mirror, which can be confused with taking a picture.

Re: looking at picture

All of that is not what is wrong!  Sorry.  One 'cheap' possibility is the SD card is corrupted.  The other more expensive one is it has failed and will need repair.

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