There is a firmware bug with 1000D that forever will lock the camera.

Try a different card preferably a new name brand SD or SDHC card. Do not use an SDXC card.

Re: Canon EOS 1000D problem buSY

We found that often what caused this was not updating to the most recent firmware.

 

If your camera became affected by this phenomenon, while the camera was still in service life (up until 2015), our Factory Service Centers here in the United States could still manually upate the firmware. Unfortunately the camera is now out of service life, so our facilities here in the US are no longer making repairs or updates to the EOS 1000D, or Rebel XS as it is known here in the US.

Tnx for answer! God bless you!
Actually, I'm not from the USA. I am from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Europe. Here I do not have a good service for DSLR. Is there a chance to flash a new firmware? OverSD Card or serial cable? Tank you

If your camera can be recognized by your compuer, then you should be able to update the firmware. If your camera can't be seen by the computer, then unfortunately you'll want to see if Canon in your region has options. Head to http://global.canon/en/support and select your region for support options.

Ha. I'm going to start using the word "phenomenon" when I totally screw something up at work.  Like the curious phenomenon where it appears I do not show up, and instead I am actually at home sleeping.

 

Seems warranty or no, he should at least get loyalty credits towards a refurb or something because it didn't wear out, it is a known defect.
