Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
My digital rebel powers on, autofocuses, flash pops up everything seems to work fine, but it won't take a picture! I get no error messages. On the advice of Ritz Camera I purchased a new battery (didn't help), new charger (didn't help), new CF card (didn't help) - When I newly charge a battery and put it in the camera - it will sometimes take one picture, then the same problem again (and even this is very sporatic). I have also tried a different lens (a friend has the exact camera and we have swapped parts to see if anything works) - HELP
First of all, you should know that when someone advises you to buy more stuff because of a problem you have, it's very possible they're ripping you off! It's a disgrace that they took advantage of you and sold you all that stuff..
Now, to your problem..
First of all, are you absolutely sure that the camera autofocuses properly? That would be the first thing to check. To make sure, turn the focus selector (on the lens) from auto to manual, try to focus manually (it doesn't matter if it's not 100% accurate) and press the button.
If that's not the case, try other modes. Try the camera in (M)anual mode, for instance. Also, just in case, try to clean (with a dry fabric) the battery contacts and also the battery contacts of the camera.
