Having problems with your Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

Alot of the busy signal and it times out from time to time

\015 Canon XTi. I've had it for a couple of years now and it has worked fine until now. Recently it takes it a lot longer between shots, constantly giving me the busy message. Also it seems to time out while in disuse, but not in disuse for very long. . . and pushing the shutter button doesn't wake it up again. I have to play with the dials or turn it off and on to snap it out of it. I never noticed a sleep mode before. Is it on it's way to the recycling bin? Sad. Please help.\015

Answers :

At least a couple of things. Have you tried a different CF card? If this takes care of it reformat the original a couple of times - in the camera. If you're in the area of a camera store ask the person there if they would reformat it in a XSi using Low format option. Then reformat it in your camera again. Check your auto off setting. This may have gotten changed accidently. Try a reset camera of all functions. Try setting your image to medium or small just to see if it goes faster. It really sounds like a CF card.
