well your sub-mirror is broken inside of the camera, i had the same problem, it just happens by itself after extended use of the camera, and it is not a means for recall by canon so you have to deal with it yourself.
this website can fix it for $130 and they will replace it with a metal piece so it doesn't happen again(original piece is weak plastic)

I just found an answer!! It appears that the camera has a CCD problem that a wire connected to CCD (camera sensor) comes off. It's manufacture defect and has affected more than 20 Canon models. Canon repairs this problem for free regardless of it's warranty status. Check out the link.
