  1. Step 1: Load the image. Open the image that you wish to remove the date stamp from.
  2. Step 2: Select the date/time stamp. Zoom in on the area with the date and time stamp, and then mark it with marker or any other selection tool.
  3. Step 3: Run the restoration process.

the camera probably was exposed to moisture, could be a mother board problem, need to have it replace

could either be that the shot without the speedlight is noisy/grainy, thus this might cause or from a perspective seems blurry

Maybe the charger is not working. Can you check it with a multimeter? Or the camera was damaged, or some blown fuse.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Are you using the canon software to download the images and downloading the images through the camera not a disk reader. Sometimes the computer will recognise your camera as a HDD when using the canon software by connecting your camera to the computer with a USB lead. Worth a try.

Have you considered looking in the manual ?

I wouldnt use the 45 CT1 on 5Dmk3. The trigger voltage as I read it is around 400volts and if the serial number is below 534000 it can ve as high as 600V. Canons official line re: trigger voltages is (or used to be) 6volts max but that was for early series DSLRs (300d/350d). The newer line of DSLRs (your 5Dmk3 for instance) are rated to a max of 250volts. The information re: the CL1 claims 6-8 volts and should be okay. The above is assuming use in the hotshoe. Firing via the PC sync socket which is more tolerant to higher voltages, but possibly 400-600v!!! is a whole other subject and I would reccommend against it with the CT1 without further investigation. There are adaptors available (Wein Safe-Sync) which can reduce these high voltages to safe levels but it is it really worth it to use an old flash (Manual only too, E-TTL will not work) on a $2000 camera ?
