I clearly heard what I thought was the shutter opening. With timer mode you don't hear the shutter opening until it's time to take the picture, right? So even if the timer were set to 30 seconds, I'd first hear nothing (or beeps) and then after half a minute the shutter both opening and closing?

Will do. If it doesn't perform before I remove the stray voltage, but does perform afterwards, is that a good thing? Or does it mean that the camera is not handling its electricity well?

Excellent suggestion. I've made an appointment to go back tomorrow, so I can try that as well in case it still doesn't work.


In any case, as I've said, I'll keep you posted!
