Question about Canon EOS Rebel 2000 35mm SLR Camera
After putting a new film in my camera and then attempting to take a photo, nothing happened only the flash popped up. The batteries are new and it reads 24 photos but, when pressing the shutter button - nothing. Nothing can be seen in the viewfinder - just a dark space. What's gone wrong? It's just died.
When we press the shutter release the mirror flips up after the shutter opens and closes the mirror flips down. When it flips down we then see out the viewfinder.
At first blush is sounds as though the mirror flipped up but not back down. Remove the lens look inside the camera press the shutter release what happens?

Open the file door and check to see if the shutter blades look uneven, like they might have been pushed out of track. Sometimes it's simple to re-track them - other times it'll have to go to a repair shop. Another cause is the film motor wears out and has to be replaced - a job for the repair shop.

Shutter release magnet faulty ( your camera is cocked but since you cannot release the shutter you cannot wind the film ). Remedy : open bottom cover by removing the two screws. You will see two small electro magnets one on the left hand side and the shutter release one on the right hand side ( it is the bigger one of the two ). The very thin wires from the magnet to the small circuit board on the right hand side may be broken : inspect and resolder 10 joints you see on the p.c. board. If no joy replace the s.r.magnet.

This happened to me to both the Canon's I had. I found out it was a dead battery. Once I replaced those it worked fine. The battery is hidden under the hand grip which can be taken off using a coin in the screw slot.

The magnets that control the shutter are the likely suspect. Dirt and debris can cause them not to hold properly. Hence, it fires the shutter when you advance the film. It is something you can repair yourself. I can describe the procedure if you are interested.

No need to look at the schematics. It only will give you a little headache. Replace Shutter release magnet (MG#3). While winding stage the Mg#3 suppose to catch the lever and any dirt or particle may prevent it. Clean it and it shoud take care of the problem. Good Luck -James.
