    Have you tried formatting the card in camera? Another card? GH

    Always reformat a card, never erase. The card`s File Allocation Table gets screwed up eventually and you can get fragmented image storage just like a computer.

    Make sure the card pins look good.

    Clean all the contacts like the battery.

    After that make sure the mirror is going up and shutter is opening. Shutter delay mode and no lens will help isolate sounds.
