Canon EOS 300D will not take photo's

\015 I have owned a Canon EOS 300D for the past three years, I have enjoyed many hours of photography with this camera however last week I went to a local river to take some photo's of a family of swans. The first two shots that I took were fine but the third shot I took did not show in the LCD screen. Since then the camera will not record any of my shots, I have checked the CF card and have also checked the Pin Connections for the card. I have replaced the CF card with a new one but still to no avail, can you please help.\015\012Yours \015\012David smith\015

I have a Canon EOS 40D When I switch it on all appears fine. When I take a photo the shutter remains open & all power is lost. I then need to remove & re-install the battery to recover power. I can view existing photos on the memory card but as soon as I switch to take a photo & click the shutter, the above happens again. Before I decide next steps I was hoping someone out there could help.

See if the problem is related to the memory card. Start by ejecting the memory card and after saving to disk via card reader, format the card. If there is a problem writing to the card, it will probably show up during the format process. Or, inser ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
