This week I was AWFUL at taking photos for Project Life.
Some weeks are like that though so I planned to do some “catch-up shots” – laundry folded on the washer, the new blinds that Matthew hung (and look AMAZING), etc. Last night I popped my card in my 40D and tried to take a picture.
I changed settings.
Tried to click.
The lens focused, but again, nothing happened.
I switched lens.
Same thing. NOTHING.
I began to panic.
I haven’t had my 40D for a year, but I bought it (barely) used and it doesn’t have a warranty.
I started googling and asked Matthew to look at it. He noticed that it wasn’t reading the card. Sure enough – “play” wouldn’t work and no numbers were showing up.
I tried a different card.
So I called canon. He asked if it would take a picture without a card in it. I said, oh, I have that setting turned off. He said go to the menu and let’s turn it on. I pushed the menu button – nothing.
Needless to say, I have to send it in for repairs. They will take a look at it, get me a repair estimate and then it will take 7-10 days to fix after they receive it. I’m praying that it isn’t too expensive to fix…
It ruined my night. I even cried. (I blame pregnancy hormones.)
Guess I will be using the point and shoot for the next few weeks.
Hope Adeline doesn’t arrive too early.
