I've had the same problem: shutter locks and does not close unless I turn off the camera.

Had also the following:

1. Bulb mode not working using canon remote. I would press the remote button and shutter opens and closes even on Bulb mode. Only after 4 to 6 times shutter locks. This happend many times.

2. Pictures coming out looking damaged (like a negative), some with half the photo taken the other half blank. Some other times, I would take a picture and what registers in the camera is an old picture I already took.

3. camera freezes completely and I get Err message.

All this happened many times during a week's time. I'm thinking of contacting Canon.

Now i'm getting to think it's a memory card problem. I hope that's the case.

Any thoughts on this?

Sounds like the camera needs to be serviced.

FWIW - here's the list of Canon Error Codes
