The shutter on my camera stopped working for about 10 minutes today. It seemed like it couldnt get back into the right position or something. When I turned off the power button, the shutter clicked like it was trying to get back to rest, when I turned the power button on, it would flap the mirror again. Camera wouldnt focus, lcd would not light up, none of the buttons were working. Whe I set the camera to manual focus, the shutter would fire, and the card would get written, but it would show no preview. I changed couple of lenses to see if it was due to lens not being mounted correctly, but the same issue persisted. After a few of the power restarts the camera started working again.

Anybody know if I should send the camere into service?
