I didn't have a button failure but a shutter failure. I voted yes but that may not be completely accurate.

My camera was just over a year old and Canon replaced it free of charge when they technically didn't have to do so. It took 10 days to repair and they changed a couple of other parts while it was in for service.

Having problems getting my faulty shutter button replaced on my 40d which is eight months old and intermittently not working - getting quite bad. I've searched and seen quite a few threads about faulty shutter button problems but would like to get an idea of numbers. If you've had a problem i'd love to hear about it.

Thanks
Nick

Yeah i understand that those with problems are far more likely to respond. I guess ignoring the percentage it's still surprising that 16 people have had a problem and responded to this thread within the 48hrs it's been up.

It's annoying hearing all these stories about how good the Canon service is in the USA when Canon Australia won't have a bar of it.

After much arguing Canon came to the party and decided to fix the shutter button. Yay. Hopefully this thread helped out. Thanks everyone.

WOW! Canon service in Australia must be the pits. I just had the shutter button repaired on my 11-month-old 40D and Canon Service in Irvine, CA did it with no questions, no charge and had it back to me in less than a week, even with shipping it through my local camera store.

Maybe time to call in the Sniper to help "motivate" Canon Australia's service..

Once my 20D was about a year old, it started to take more and more pressure to get the shutter to fire. Eventually it got so bad that 1/5 of the time I couldn't get it to fire at all and I would let go of the shutter and hit it again. It did that for a week, and I couldn't handle that any longer. That is not the way to shoot sports.

So I squirted some electronic lubricant in there and it worked just fine for another 6 months, until I sold it.
