I have a wonderful Canon EOS Rebel t2i that I just love to death. I bought it second hand and have been using it for the past 6 months. Today, I pulled it out to take a picture and the shutter stuck! This happens on M & Av modes, but not on any of the other & automatic modes. I checked the mirror lock and that's not on.
So basically, what happens is:
Camera focuses, I press to take the photo and the shutter makes it's regular sound and closes... and then does not open up again. There is a red light that blinks, the screen is black, and after about 22 seconds, it re-opens and the photo is over exposed.
What is happening? How do I fix it? How did this happen? I am currently traveling and won't be able to take it in for diagnostics immediately.
Thanks for the help!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Test it in M mode. In Av mode, the camera will select a shutter speed based upon the Aperture, ISO, and available light. A long shutter time could be normal for the conditions.
Try dialing in the same settings [Shuuter, Apeture, ISO] from the A mode, into manual, and take another test shot.
