Question about Canon Rebel XS / Eos 1000D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f& EF 75-300mm f Lens
This sure sounds like the shutter is constantly being engaged and the camera is shooting in "continuous shooting mode". I would run it into a camera shop and see if they can identify the problem, and provide an estimate for repair. Before doing that, I would suggest getting hold of Canon Support to see what they think's going on, and then get a second opinion from a camera shop. I can't imagine how the shutter is being triggered unless the plastic tang is broken and keeping the copper-trace switch engaged. The bad thing about switches on most of these cameras, is that the entire camera often has to be disassembled just to get to the switch and replace it, which incurs a bit of labor/time/money. Also, I suppose there could be another trickier hardware/software problem going on in the background. That's why I would see what Canon can offer to do, or if they can suggest some other fix. Here's Canon's support site:
Good luck, and hope this helps.
