Hi folks, I am posting this for a friend who has a Elan IIe, and has been having some trouble with it. He asked me for help, but I don't know much about these cameras trouble spots, etc. The problem is, the camera "jams" intermitently - as in, you press the shutter, the mirror goes up and stays up, and the battery indicator shows low battery, even with a brand new batter. This condition seems to get worst and then better, sometimes disappearing all together, sometimes locking up on every shot, with no perceived rhyme or reason. I was hoping some of the more experienced users of Canon auto-focus bodies may have come across this and perhaps know of a remedy. Is this a common problem with these cameras? Thanks in advance for any and all input - it is much appreciated! Peter.
