Just got a brand new camera. Played around with it a few nights to learn all the parts and buttons. Went to a concert tonite. While waiting for the show I took many test shots to see how the camera would work under these contiditions. Used a 75 to 300 Cannon lens. I had just got the settings about right when the show started. All of a sudden the display went dark and "busy" flashed in the view finder. But it would not take any more pictures. Taking the battery out and removing the sd card did not help. The auto focus and flash still worked but nothing else. This camera is going back to the store if I can't get some help. PLEASE............. vj
There are a couple of things that will usually cause this. A few are simple to check.:
1. Make sure that you battery is inserted properly and that your battery door is closed completely.
2. Make sure that your CF card is inserted properly and that your card slot cover door is completely closed.
3. Make sure that your battery is charged (charge it for 90 minutes) and that your charger works properly during the process. Your charger's light should go from red to solid green during a full charge. If possible test a fully charged battery on another camera. If you don't have access to another camera take your battery down to a local store that sells Rebels and ask to try it on one.
4. If these aren't the cause then you likely have an electrical issue with your camera and you should call Canon's tech support at 1-800-828-4040 to do a little troubleshooting and possibly send the unit in for service.
