Question about Canon Digital Rebel XT / EOS 350D Body only Digital Camera
Everything seems to be working...the lens is focusing, etc. The camera seems to be stuck in a delay mode...pressing the shutter button has no reaction...yet if I switch the camera on and off, as it cones on I can hear the shutter fire..but it will not take another picture...if i keep it on the motor drive setting and switch it on, it goes on firing continuously by itself... Am wondering if it is the battery...or if a setting has changed (somebody else was playing with it...)

I have same problem with my Rebel XTI and asked the problem to Canon USA. Here is the answer of Canon USA and it seems worked with my camera.
Resetting the camera back to default standards may solve the problem.
Please put the camera in AF mode instead of MF. In order to reset the camera back to default standards, we recommend you perform the following
1. Turn the camera ON in the P (Program) Mode.
2. Press the MENU button.
3. Scroll over to the Tools2 menu, then scroll down to Clear all settings.
4. Highlight the Clear all settings option and press the SET button.
5. Highlight the OK option and press the SET button.
At this point, the camera should be reset back to factory standards.
Also, try a different lens. If the camera still does not work, then the camera will need to be serviced.
Hoping to help finding a way to solve your problem.
