And some very important information !!!!!!!!!!!

When trying to solve the problem with the DCP CONNECT issue I accidently invoked the entry Factory Menu/Sw Test - from the standard menu and ran into a test, where I saw a list of entries and every key I pressed made one of these entries green. Even power on/off didn't power off but lit an entry.

So I plugged out CF-Card and battery and plugged in again.

After some endless tries with unmodified CF-cards and removing and reinserting all batteries it now works again ... although I cannot give a recipe ...

My advice - keep off fingers from the Factory Menu (leave it by pressing Menu key ....)

Does anybody know a way/a code to leave that Sw-Test thing ...

Regards
Frank

Hi there,

great hack!

I have a small issue though. I cannot connect my 400D via USB to my computer. After some searching I found that the camera wants to use DCP CONNECT which - regarding to some posts in other forums - is an indication that the camera is in service mode instead of user mode.

Is that caused by the hack? Is there a way around it - so that I can use EOS Utility and/or USB connection to download pics?
Am I doing something wrong?

Regards
Frank


Which version are you using? There are reports of similar issues, but they where fixed ages ago...
I tried the latest version, but could not reproduce it.

New version, mostly to add the configuration of the shortcuts menu, and a couple of new shortcuts:

Not a fan of the shortcuts menu.

Is there no option in the 400plus menu to disable the shortcuts menu, and only have the DP button for ISO?

Thanks

First of all: Thank you guys for your fine work.

Now to my bug(s): Menu is not complete. Also after full format & reinstall of hack & last version (and yes: blue light flashing) - still not working properly:

  • Handwave: Cannot find options action/repeat/instant; just delay
    Ext. AEB: cannot find frames/step/manual[]; just delay
    Interval: no time/EAEB/shots; just delay
    Timer: no action, just delay
Short cut menu via AV: Not able to change values again or choose another item/sub menu shortcuts. Have to shut camera down.

No extra shortcuts visible in menu.

I have read and reread instructions, but can't find what I'm doing wrong. Therefore I think it's a bug (in my camera only?).

I took the latest version - the one before you published a new one ...
Just tried the new one - same result. XP always wants me to install some DCP CONNECT stuff.
I also upgraded to the latest EOS Utility - still no change.
Tried different USB-ports - no effect other than asking to install DCP CONNECT .... hmm

Did you try pressing the MENU buttons to change the sub-item displayed? What happens when you press the MENU button, does the sub-item displayed change?

Short cut menu via AV: Not able to change values again or choose another item/sub menu shortcuts. Have to shut camera down.

Enter the shortcuts menu (DP) and then press AV: did you hear a BEEP? Now, press UP / DOWN: does the selection bar changes? When you press RIGHT and LEFT: does the selected item change?

No extra shortcuts visible in menu.

The extra shortcuts must be assigned using the shortcuts configuration described above; you will not be able to see them until those instructions work for you.

Either I really messed up with the release, and uploaded something completely different to what I am using, or there is something weird with your camera; which firmware version do you have?

Could you try with a formated card, without the hack, please?

Tried with a formatted CF Card - DCP CONNECT wanted.
But ... also tried it on a different computer - still DCP CONNECT wanted.

So to me this is a camera issue rather than a PC issue.

Don't get me wrong. I don't want to blame anybody - I just want to find a solution and maybe give some searchable knowledge if somebody else faces this problem.

BTW:
Do you know how to swich from user to service mode manually?

Something (maybe) important:
I have also found a file called MCTEST.BIN on my CF card which I did not create ...

Best regards
