Question about Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm SLR Camera
My shutter is locking up... i have to press the shutter button again in order for it to open up.
Along with that, my flash isnt going off, even though i pressed the flash button.
And the camera is telling me that my batter is dead/dying but their BRAND NEW batteries.
And its giving me some numbers in inches????
and if i want to turn off my camera, it wont let me.
The green rectangle is full automatic. You can use the P mode for the same function. In the P mode, you can change settings, in the green rectangle, you cannot.

SOURCE: Rebel 2000 went retarded
I got a Rebel 2000 off ebay, and it had the same problem. The Shutter wouldn't open, it showed dead batteries, and the mirror hung until I pressed the shutter button or changed modes.
After a good deal of surfing, I found that the most likely reason was a sticky/oily shutter
Since I didn't have much $$$ invested in the camera, I tried cleaning the shutter curtain with Qtips and alcohol. After a little cleaning, the shutter started to move. After a lot of cleaning, the shutter moves freely. I ran a roll of film through it, and it seems to be working just fine now.

Mirror mechanism is locked up and probably out o synch with the rest of the shutter cocking mechanism. sometimes there is enough power in battery to focus lens, but not enough to power the winder/shutter/miror mecansim- check the battery
