my website translating links (like babelfish and google) are not working on this site - but it does seem that they have something promising in there.

As far as I know, that's just the original firmware but some variable has a different value, thus enabling the service-bits.

i just read through the whole thread there, and it is full of bullcrap. someone had his 40d's sensor cleaned and got back his 40d with a new service menu (supposedly). although being told to do so, he never did prove it by at least supplying pictures of this new menu (he said he doesnt have a 2nd camera multiple times... like he is living in a cave...). anyhow, he then reported that he sent it back to service to get a non-service 1.05 firmware on it... even though SEVERAL people told him they would BUY his 40D (with the service menu activated) for money worth at least a NEW 40d.
given these facts i either think the guy was a big idiot or a liar.

:-\

Your action:

1. Run WinHEX redactor
2. Open - dump firmware ver. 1.08 (1.05) Canon 40d
3. CTRL+F - Search text 3.6.6 64
4. .....!!!!!!

.....op-p-p-ps..... It's name menu, all right.

In the 1.0.8 FW code I cant fine the text 3.6.6.64 or sometyhink that looks like it, but there are the folowing strings

"Factory Menu"
"DISPLAY CK"
"Lens/CF/SD CK"
"DATA CHK"
"FLAG"
"Dir SW CK"
"BACK SW TEST"

and on other places

"DIAL CK"
"DISPLAY CK"
"TFT CK"
"LED"
"AF CK"
"DATA CK"

So it looks like a menu that can be activated somehow. It would be nice to figure out how this is done.

The "factory menu" is a "hidden" menu item at the bottom of the shooting-1 menu, below "review time"
 :D

I have this menu on my 40d camera that I bought 2nd hand. The seller must have sent it away for service. I am trying to get rid of it as I cannot connect the camera to my PC using USB. It comes up as a different device. DCP CONNECT. I called my Local Canon dealer here in Auckland New Zealand and they didn't know what I was talking about but said I would need to send it in for service.

I'll post some pics for you unbelievers :)

Seems bizarre as it does nothing at all besides from a few checks. Of which you cannot even complete fully as I'm guessing there is some test routing that needs to be run.

anyway I'll take those pictures I promised and upload them..

oh, I'd be happy to do any 'testing' if you want me to, just need to say what you want done.

sorry about the poor photo quality, only had my camera phone to take pics of my camera :)
