Turn camera off, take out battery, put in a one you know is charged up. Then turn on camera and try again. The numbers may just be from in the 'info button' and will disappear when taking a photo. I am wondering if the battery is dead is why the shutter won't work and has nothing to do with 'numbers.'

Hello, It's possible that the reason the "pictures turn out fairly good" is that your f-stop is set high enough that even though the image isn't properly focused, you have enough depth-of-field to bring your subject into "near focus". Does your lens try to focus back and forth when you half-press the shutter? If not, double check that the lens is in autofocus and not manual focus. You can also try cleaning the contacts between the lens and camera. Take the lens off, and then one-at-a-time clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera, using a clean pencil eraser. Gently rub the contacts. Be sure to hold the item upside down so that the eraser debris falls on to the table, not into the camera body or lens!
If none of this helps the autofocus may have become damaged and you need to have the lens and camera looked at by Canon Repair.
