Pink areas. I'm a professional photographer and recently my wonderful old workhorse - a 1DS Mk 1 - started giving OCCASIONAL pink highlights.  Canon Australia Advised me that I needed a new chip at an astronomical cost. So I replaced my 1DS with a new 5D mK2. Less than 3 months old and OCCASIONALLY I get odd areas ( always in the higher exposure area ) of excessive pink!

After power on, green light comes on. On opening the touch pad viewer orange charge light comes on and whole camera shuts down leaving orange light lit. The only way to turn off the orange light is to remove battery. Since the battery is showing more than 90 mins remaining..I doubted it ay be battery but on changing battery with new one problem exists. I think it may be to do with the connection of touch pad viewer at hinge location. If i flip open fast the touch pad viewer stays on...then on
