    Hi, Is the camera set on one of the manual functions? There are a couple that can lock the shutter open for long exposure.. If so set it back to auto and try that..

Press shutter releas button for error are coming ,wat is the Problem


1. Turn off the camera. 2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card. 3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes. 4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera. 5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture. Does the "ERR ' message appear? If it does, then the camera should be serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps: 1. Turn off the camera. 2. Insert the CF card. 3. Turn on the camera. 4. Format the CF card in the camera. 5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture. Does the "ERR ' message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most likely source of the issue. Try using a different card. If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps: 1. Turn off the camera. 2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body. 3. Reattach your lens. 4. Turn on the camera. 5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture. If the "ERR ' message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician. If you see the "ERR ' with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera should be serviced.

Canon EOS 20D shutter error


Hello - I figured it out. I had the exact same problem. The shutter failed and it had to be fixed by Canon. Apparently that happens after the shutter fires so many times (like a click-count on a printer). I just got my camera back and it's doing awesome now.

The shutter wont engage.


Preliminary searching leads me to believe that this camera won't take anything larger than a 1GB memory card.

Camera shuts off when you click the shutter button


The same thing happened to mine. While not a solution, my workaround has been to turn the LCD screen off when I'm shooting. It's worked so far.

Please help...I can't take any pictures!


Possibility one : lens unit faulty and proper focus is not being achieved camera goes into error mode because of this and then it switches off to prevent further damage.( replace /repair lens unit ) Possibility two: shutter faulty . Lens delivers proper focus but when you try to take picture goes into error mode because shutter not coming on line or malfanctions. ( replace shutter only ).

Canon A520 Everything works, except the button you take pictures with. It wont work.


I need more information about what symptoms you are experiencing. I am going to guess that your shutter is stuck closed. This would cause a blank image to show on the view screen and your captured pictures. The regular icons and text would still display normally. Is this what you are seeing? If not please explain further what is happening and I will respond again with more information. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
