Photography Question 
Gregory P. Ruffin

Has my sensor gone bad?

I have owned a Canon 30D for two years and have @ 6000 clicks on it. Recently while attempting to shoot a tennis match I noticed that whenever I depressed the shutter everything appeared to operate normally, except that no image appeared on the sensor and the number of photographs did not advance. I have engaged the self-cleaner a number of times, but it has not helped. I can still view images that were on the card prior to this problem but it will not allow new images.

  Send it to me and I'll try it for a while....with $100 and your car
Head straight to your local camera store and ask them, or send it to the Canon Service Center...sooner the better. It always gets busy during Holidays, you'll have it back in 10 days if you act now.

  Doesn't sound like the way a bad sensor behaves to me, but I've only had one bad one so far, so I'm sure others will have better ideas.
