7D - Err 30 fault

I've had my 7D for over 2 years now and I'm very happy with it in every aspect except for today when it locked up and froze giving an "Err 30" reading on the display.

It said to remove the battery and try again - still got "Err30"

I tried 3 different batteries - all fully charged - still "Err 30" read out.

"Err 30" is apparently a shutter fault code.

Any other forum members with a similar experience please?

The battery charge status is showing empty even though the batteries are fully charged.

Really annoying and my only negative experience with the 7D.

Love the handling,features, high ISO performance and fps but that's all academic if it just dies.

Any feedback would be much appreciated - many thanks
