Was wondering if anyone might have some insight into a problem I'm having with my Elan IIe. A while back it started acting up with the following symptoms. I can get a low random number of shots off before the entire camera appears to shut down with a flashing dead battery indicator. I'm using an EF 28-105 USM lens on it when this happens. Right at the moment I don't have another lens to try to see if that's causing the problem. The lens appears to focus nice and fast and doesn't appear to make any unusual noises or such. I've tried different batteries, different brands. Also have cleaned the battery contacts and made sure there was plenty of contact pressure to the battery itself. I'm at a lose. Forgot to mention that once this problem happens I can turn the camera off and back on again and all works for a little while. The battery indicator shows full charge after cycling the camera and doesn't appear to get low before the problem occurs, it happens spontaneously and at random. Has anyone ever experienced such a problem?
