hey all first time poster and i know you guys mess with the canon hardware.
any help will be appreciated.
this is how my cam behaves now.
youtube.com/watch?v=POwsHqUfZMA (can't paste link for some reason)
i connected the camera with usb to my phone (SGS4) and used Helicon Remote.
took video and it worked fine for a year (taking out the now and then crashes of the software)
few days ago while the camera was buffering after i stopped the video, the program crashed and my cam got stuck. i waited for a minute or so and power cycle my camera.
and the result is the video above. i can't take pictures the camera get stuck from time to time and when i connect it back to the remote (android) i can't seem to take video more then a second.
i don't know how exactly but it seems the Remote triggered a flag in the buffer processor or something similar and it cannot be rested.
things i tired-
- different CF
- taking the battery
- power cycling
- uploading the firmware again.
- trying to mess with the windows version of the remote (which just crashed when connecting it to the computer)
-trying to mess with the android version so see if i can repair it.
i'm sure it's not a hardware fault (meaning it's NOT mechanical but a problem with embedded software on the electronic chips)
i'm almost sure it's a problem with the software of the embedded chip.
this happened just after using the Helicon remote.
the camera work fantastically for years.
anyway.. any help will me much appreciated is there any good Debugging tools around ?
