Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
The camera will focus and beep (and the flash will pop up if needed) whe we push the button halfway down, but when we go to finish clicking the button, it won't take the picture. We often receive a busy flash message in the display window as well.
This is the same problem I was having. I simply removed the lens and flicked the internal mirror with my finger nail a few times. The camera then worked fine.
Probably, our cameras need a good cleaning. My guess is the issue is that some internal moving parts are a bit jammed up with dust or other crud. When I flicked the mirror it freed it up. I don't think that this will be a permanent fix, so I'm scheduling the camera for a professional cleaning
