\015 When taking a picture it sounds like you take the picture but the ERR shows in screen and no picture has been taken. This started about 3 months ago intermittently adn I could shut off and turn back on and we were good to go. It no longer lets me do that it always gives the error message now...we've tried all the troubleshooting in the book and nothing remedies this problem...we took it to a camera fixer guy and he said he would send it off for $300 doesn't see m reasonable to me\015

Two possible things to check.

\015\012First, a bad memory card can easily cause this problem. Try replacing the card.
\015\012
\015\012Secondly, could be a poor connection between camera and lens. Be sure contacts around the rim of lens and lens opening are clean and free of dirt, dust and debri. Do not get anything inside your camera when you remove the lens. Dust is a killer to the sensor in the camera.
