I've had my XTI for a few months now and it's been a great camera (for the price). Though, today I went to take a couple of pictures and had originally set it to P mode..tried taking a picture after setting everything and it just didn't do anything. So I tried holding it down just a little at first then pressing the button all the way, still nothing. Changed to no flash mode (picture isn't of anything special) and still did the same thing. I tried close up mode and full auto just to see if I could get it to work. It took one picture in auto, then nothing after trying to take a couple more.

Has anyone else had this problem?/ Know why it would be doing that?

I've only had mine act that way when the lens was in auto-focus mode and couldn't get focus confirmation. That, and when the batteries were dead. ;)

Watch for the focus confirmation light - if it's off or flashing, then that's what's happening. I hope that's all it is. Or maybe you've accidentally activated the self-timer.

Oh, shoot, I think that's what happened. Just checked and it was in auto focus, so I switched it and it seems to work fine now..Thanks!

Well it looks like that problem is solved. I constantly find myself doing the same thing, except it's not the auto-focus, it's the fact that I left the timer on from the previous day's tripod shooting.
