Canon Rebel XTi - won't shoot

\015 I shoot sports for three weekly papers, shooting about 800-1000 imagesa\015\012week. But sometimes my Canon Rebel XTi won't fire - tothe\015\012point my fingers are sore from pushing so hard.I\015\012shot a soccer game under sunny, cool conditions from 4:30 -6 p.m.\015\012At7:30 p,n., as it cooled dopwn and it became darrk, the camera\015\012firedonce - once in a while. But I was able to get enough shots from\015\012thatfootball game. It was probably 30-35 degrees Fahrenheit at that\015\012time.And now this morning, after sitting in doors, I can't even take a shot off the dog with the built-in flash. Nothing - and I have three games to cover today.\015

Hi

Sounds like you have shot so many photos you have worn out the shutter box. The box is usually good for about 10,000 actuations... so... sounds like you have gotten far more than that out of it.

I have one XTi with a buddy right now who is a certified Canon, Nikon and Fuji tech and he's putting in a new shutter box for one of my customers. It's the first one he's done so I will see if he wants to keep doing them or not and how much he would want if he decides he will continue to do them for me.

I own a Canon EOS Rebel XTi. This camera is unpredictable; i.e., I never know when it will decide not to record an image. I have reset it many times to the manufacturer's default settings, and then it SOMETIMES works, but then for some reason stops recording images. I have started to always carry a second camera (a point & shoot). However I am enrolled in a number of photography classes in the new year where I need an SLR. Is this camera issue serious or something I can fix? Thanks.
