40D shuts down when shutter pressed
\015 I have it for 14 months too. I think this camera has a tech problem.\015
You may have a serious problem that will require professional repair, but it's also possible that the problem may be battery related. Make sure\015\012that\015\012you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are\015\012fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion\015\012on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full\015\012battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy\015\012corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand\015\012paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery\015\012compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and\015\012reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about\015\01290% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

I was in the middle of shooting a wedding, when suddenly my camera said that it was 'busy' - it was taking a while to go back to normal, so I decided to shut the camera off and just turn it back on again (I didn't mind loosing the last image). When I turned the camera back on... all of the sudden the shutter kept going off extremely fast (without me pressing the shutter button). I turned the camera back off, but the shutter kept going off. I freaked out and too the battery out to make it stop.

EX-S880 Shutdown I have a problem with my camera where it will automatically shut down as soon as I push the shutter button. The on/off button will not turn the camera on, but it will turn it off. I can turn it on by pressing the play or record button. I can also record with it as well. I just cannot take snapshots--it powers down right away. Anyone else have this problem?
