The mirror flips up, the shutter opens, then it shuts off.

I have to remove the battery for a while to clear it.

Even then, if I turn it off, it won't come back on again.

It happened during a wedding.

I switched to backup and later turned it on and it came on. I didn't do anything else until I got home and it didn't come on.

I was hoping this was related to the firmware.

You may have a real problem, but those who encountered freezing could easily fix that by removing the battery, some report that setting APO to 1 minute or to off was helpful. You are the first to report a "dead" camera.
