Having problems with your Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera ?

EOS 40D died without obvious reason.

\015 I was using the camera in the morning. When I came to switch on in the afternoon, there was no response from the camera. I recharged the battery and cleaned its contacts, but to no avail. Suspect circuit board is burned out.\015

As a camera repairman with 35 years of experience repairing all makes and models of cameras, I have done several EOS 40D's with this issue. The problem is one of the two motors in the body, 1 for mirror shutter charging 1 for flash head up has gone bad. When the camera is powered on the microprocessor pulses the motors for 20ms to check the battery. The motors in this camera are an extremely new design that are breaking in sometimes a very short time. Just did a repair with a shutter/mirror count of 2370 on it.
This same problem happened to me. I sent it in to two repair centres for a quote and both wanted about

Flashless photograghy I bought a this camera about a month ago. I would like to know what settings I need to put it on so I can take good pictures of a stage performence without having to use my flash.

My D5000 was dropped onto a stone floor from 4 feet height. It is operating without any obvious malfunction. The 18 - 55 mm lens gets stuck at 45 mm but can be forced to 55 mm without much effort.
