50D error 30!!!

Hi all,

I'm having an issue with my Canon 50D, I keep getting a message saying

"Err 30 shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to off........."

I've looked into it, and found its a pretty common shutter error. But I'm not sure what to do now.

I've been all over the web reading forums, and watching videos.

Some people say I can be fixed by cleaning the sensor (didn't work), or hitting it, or even pouring Isopropyl into the shutter button!

And to send it into canon is going to cost more that it cost to buy it in the first place!

So my question is, what exactly is going on here, and is there any way I can possibly fix it myself.

Thanks on advance
