Nothing happens when I press button to snap a picture
It happens on occasion, which is usually when I really need to use my camera. But when I go to take a picture, it doesn't click, just the flash-light lights up while I'm pressing the button, but thats it. Also, I can press really hard, and it may snap the picture, but thats only sometimes. Now, sometimes, the camera is fine and I can take a picture with no problem
Strange, but I'm getting fusterated.

Hello Ray, This is not something a user wants to attempt !!! The camera really needs to be repaired by a tech. You will do more harm than good by trying to fix it yourself and will cost even more if you damage something.
Some symptoms of a defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card. When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value.
hion flash defuser unit up position, it doesn't allow to take picture. This means technically flash circuit is continuously sending charging signal causes blocking shutter release.( but not all of model, it is depend on model of camera.). Like this case, it is obvious that either a fuse brown or charge controlling pcb defective. I recommend you send to your local repair shop or canonUSA. They would charge around $45 to165 depend on what they really want to charge.
I've had this happen to me too and I've been researching about it. Aparantly it happens because the camera still think the external flash is attached. If you go into the menu and under flash control, try ot enter the settings for built in flash. If this is the problem it will tell you here that the external flash is still attached. From what I have read to far, I'm not sure how to fix it. I would reccomend taking it in somehwere. I dont htink its a hard problem to fix.
If your using the hot shoe with an external flash, three things could've happened: battery power in your camera is too low to fire the flash; or check the menu/settings/flash - ext flash settings may not have been chosen by the camera, but you may need to set it first manually; or your hot shoe is not a hot one, but your flash needs to be plugged into a PC outlet on the side of your camera. One last thing - test fire your flash and make sure it works to rule out the camera. There have been occasions where the ready light works on the flash, but it won't fire even after being plugged in. This problem was found to be a loose soldered wire in the flash foot. Another time it wound up to be the flashtube. Hope this helps.
I have the same problem but could not find any solution as yet.
My work around is to switch of the flash and shoot with manual controls - of course that only works well when using a tripod or someting similar.
I think it is a bug with the flash loader wich seems not to give the go for shooting until flash preload is finished. If anybody has a real solution I'd be happy to read.
This is weird, usually shutter delays are caused because camera is trying to focus first, it really shouldn't happen after pre-focus. do you have a manual focus mode? if you do, try it and see if it works. if you dont, I would still suspect it some kind of focusing problem, but unfortunalty i have no idea how you can fix it yourself.
