Here's the problem.... I had a photoshoot, I took my last shot in a series and the shutter just kept clicking. I've taken out the batteries, removed the lens, and the media card. Cleaned the contacts and replaced the batteries, media card and lens to no avail. The shutter continues to click in rapid concession the moment I replace the battery. Even when I put the memory card in, the shutter continues to click repeatedly. If anyone has experienced this problem and resolved it or can refer me to a thread with the answer please respond.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so,please see this linkfor further info and a simple fix that may help. By the way, recommend trying the pencil tapping method described in this article for a stuck "open" shutter.
Does the light flash for 10 seconds, with a series of beeps getting faster before the picture is taken so you miss the shot, or are you saying the shutter stays open for several seconds giving you a whiteout picture?
If the former, then the self-timer is on. Press the button on the back of the camera to the
right of the displays just under the AV button. The display icon will
change from :-
Hand sweeping round clock = self timer mode
Simple square = single shot mode
Stacked squares = multi shot (keep finger pressed to keep shooting)
If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality
variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure
cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid,
because the camera shutter fault.
shutter mechanism of canon 300d lasts for around 5000 shots or less!! yes it is made of plastic materials thats why here in the philippines I am making my own metal replacement parts that lasts. Unfortunately, in your country you cant do anything but to replace it with same original replacement parts. avoid using faster shutter speed and continuous shots.
