Question about Canon EOS-20D Body only Digital Camera

1 Answer

Non stop shutter clicking

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.

Sounds like the software has crashed ..

On most digital cameras there is a factory reset' button (maybe hiding under the back-up battery, if you have such a thing) ...

I've taken many photos so far with my Canon T70 but have no idea how many and when to stop.. i'm not counting the number of photos i've taken, haven't heard any beeping and don't know...


The maximum number of shots possible is 24 or 36 depending on the film length, although sometimes you can squeeze an extra one out of a film. If the film loaded correctly you will get a frame counter in the LCD. If the film did not load correctly, then you have not taken any photos as the film is still in the canister and unexposed.

Take the camera to a totally dark room (and I do mean absolutely pitch black) and open the camera. if you can feel the film canister and just the short leader then it didn't load and you can turn on the lights and try loading again. if there is just the canister and no film sticking out, then the film has rewound and you can turn the lights on and send the film for developing to see if the camera worked. If you feel film going from the canister right across to the take-up spool, then your film is still being used and you should close the back of the camera before turning on the lights again. The latter does not necessarily mean that your camera is OK though as it should be showing frame numbers, but it may be usable still. If after a few more shots the camera is still behaving just the same then it's got a fault.

A faulty t70 is really not worth repairing. It's complex, spares are mostly unavailable, and they are almost worthless even in perfect condition. Any of the earlier non-t-series Canon FD-mount bodies are far better and a lot more fixable. They are also usually near worthless and can be picked up free or very cheaply, but as they have less to go wrong and were designed with repairs in mind then many common faults can be fixed.

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 link for 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.

The shutter button does not appear to click down and the lense does not open so no picture is taken. Usually it makes a sound and you know the picture has taken. HELP MEEE????


I had a similar problem with another brand of this type of camera. I would click the shutter and hear it open but it would not go through the series of four lens exposures unless I manually turned the film advance wheel . I think it may be because the motor isn't strong enough to draw the film across and trigger the shots. cheap plastic, ya know. I never got the film developed but im interested to see if it got anything at all.

Lin & Daniel,
I had the same problem w/ my T90 after years of not using it. But, the T90 is not dubbed the Tank for nothing. The shutter curtains stucked/stacked because of unuse, especially if you hadn't used it for years.
Here's what i've done to revived it:
I set the shutter speed Tv 500 in Low then hit the carpeted floor while pressing the release button.
Try it my friends and let me know.

Shutter sticks


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)

Infamous error 99 (again!)


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.
