What I have done so far.

1. taken the battery out for a while. - No Help
2. Did a soft reset a couple of times - No Help
3. Did a hard reset - No Help
4. Checked the firm and it was at 2.0
5. Cleaned the lens contacts on camera and the lens. -No Help
6. Changed lens to see if that would help - No Help
7. Reformatted the card - No help

The only way that I can make the camera fire is flip over into manual focus and then it works fine. The R09 messages changes to R04 when change picture to Raw, or R12 when shooting small jpegs. According to the manual these number should show up if the buffer is full but with only picture taken after a soft and hard reset I would think this would not be the case. Any guidance you provide on my troubleshooting would be greatly appreciated.
