I was formatting a card and it took recharging the battery numerous times, and still says busy 9 after four months. I thought it would fix itself but it never has. I can view photos already taken, and access the info menu but that is all. The access lamp flashes three times rapedily when any change in features are tried, or the on/off is used.

It appears that there is something wrong with your SD card. Format the card in the camera before using it again. Make sure you have saved all images to the computer before formatting.
You have a faulty battery. Try cleaning the contacts on both the batteries and the charger.
This may seem silly, but is it possible that you're accidentally turning the camera on to camera mode rather than review mode with the lens cap on? That would explain a black screen without being able to view images on the card. Just a thought.
I had the same problem, camera is only 5 months old and still under warrenty. I sent it into cannon for repair...mother board was shot...new board installed...have used the camera 2 times since getting it back...camera has died on me again...same problem. Have to send it back again! Don't recommend this camera to anyone!
most digital cameras have the option of either viewing either thru the large screen OR thru the regular old view finder. There should be a small button that will let you toggle between the two. Hope this helps!
Just got a brand new camera. Played around with it a few nights to learn all the parts and buttons. Went to a concert tonite. While waiting for the show I took many test shots to see how the camera would work under these contiditions. Used a 75 to 300 Cannon lens. I had just got the settings about right when the show started. All of a sudden the display went dark and "busy" flashed in the view finder. But it would not take any more pictures. Taking the battery out and removing the sd card did not help. The auto focus and flash still worked but nothing else. This camera is going back to the store if I can't get some help. PLEASE............. vj
Okay, this is simple. Your camera can take several pictures at one time in a burst. However when you release the shutter button your processor takes a second to actually SAVE the pictures to the card in the camera. One thing than has helped me in my wedding photography business is to buy the fastest speed cards I can find. It significantly reduced my "busy" time.

I found out the hard way that you should never use alkaline batteries in a Digital Camera. I thought my camera had a fundamental flaw (power kept going off whenever I tried to take a photo or record a video and the shutter blades half closed) even though it was only 2 months old. I nearly wrote it off but all along the problem was that I was using alkaline batteries, which incidentally were enclosed with the camera in the box!! Once I switched to NiMH (Nickel) batteries the camera worked fine and the fault completely vanished! These NiMH batteries are avaiable in most electrical shops i.e currys/comet in the UK. They must be charged before use. They are more expensive than alkaline batteries (£8-£9 for 4) but as they are rechargable they last a long time.
