    Canon 40D problem

    hi, i m a new member of this forum. I bought my Canon 40D from USA 2 years ago. And I used this one occassionally so my shutter count maybe 6,000 to 7,000. But I got problem from my Canon 40D. The camera shutter is not working. Anyone has any idea how much cost for fixing this one or what is wrong with the camera ? The camera showing err 99 problem when i press the shutter button. I already tried to fix doing like change battery, memory card and even lens contact cleaning. it is same. Live view also is not working. *removed - any reference to wanting to buy gear is not allowed on AP* Is the 60D shutter mechanism same like 40D ? Can i rely on it ? Anybody has any experience about it ?

    You are probably best to drop it into Canon to get a quote - it could be a myriad of things and in the end we are only guessing.

    My 40D shutter died March last year and I had it replaced here in Brisbane *Repair Shop has since closed down* under the extended warranty so no idea how much it costs
    The photo count on mine would be close to 100,000..

    Had a focusing screen replaced in the 5D Mk11 last month under Mack extended warranty I rang > Here In Sydney and was surprised to find they quoted me less than two of the Brisbane Repairers did, even with postage both ways.
    I don' know if they will quote over the phone for everyone but its worth a phone call to find out..

    I've just got the same problem on my 450D, have just dropped it in for repairs today in Adelaide. It isn't under warranty as its 4 years old. I will let you know what the repair quote is when I get it. I'm actually not sure what my shutter count is, but I have a feeling it would be on the higher side considering its age and my love of shooting 3 bracketed exposures and bird wildlife.

    I've got around 50,000 actuations on my 60D, bought grey, and it is stil working perfectly.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    The member has not been back since posting this. So I am going to assume the bit I edited out was the real reason for the thread, and close their account.

    Ok thanks.

    I was going to post regarding the error 99 issue - I need a new shutter. Hope that helps anyone else who might be having a similar issue if not the OP.
