While shooting birds, in manual mode with auto ISO, the ISO stuck at 25,600 and all the images were white. Any thoughts?

I recently shot a car show with a a runaway ISO setting. I managed to repair most of them in Lightroom to a somewhat usable condition. My non photographer friends didn't notice or didn't say anything. I was skewered my my friends that are into photography. It was a painful lesson for me but now I know to be careful and more observant of my settings.

Welcome to the Forum Daniel. Where are you from?

Is it possible that you have somehow accidentally set your auto iso to 25,600 minimum? When you hit the Fn button and go to ISO you'll see the minimum and maximum ISO values which you can change.
