Looking for some help with my shutter. I've reset all my settings to try and fix the problem but no luck. When in picture taking mode, the shutter simply will not take a picture no matter what the camera is set to (auto, manual, whatever) but the touch shutter by touching the screen works. Also whenever I turn on the camera it takes a picture on its own, but the screen remains black until I push the shutter button.
I doubt if the camera is taking picture on its' own. What do these pictures look like? Can you play them back? It sounds more like the camera is in video mode. Check the video mode switch and reset the camera.
It's a regular picture of whatever the camera happened to be pointed at at the time
Are you certain your camera is not in Movie or Live View mode? I suggest you contact Canon Support. Be prepared to answer many of the same questions all over again.
