restoring 7D settings after repair??
Sep 1, 2012

So i waiting 3 weeks for my 7D to come back from Canon for the repair of the "camera cannot communicate with battery" problem. THey replaced the Power Supply Assembly and cleaned the camer.

So, I have no idea why, considering all the settings are in flash memory (as proven from when I pulled both batteries), but they actively Reset the entire camera with all my settings apparantly lost. (I already had v2.0 firmware installed)

Is there some way to retrieve them? Would there have been a way to export / save them prior to sending to Canon? Would they be recoverable using DPP with old photos?

My settings I want back:

  • MFA for 3 lens

  • Picture Profile adjustments

  • AI Servo settings

  • likely others I am forgetting for now.

Thanks in advance.
