I hope a fellow XA owner can provide some help on this. I have both an XA and an XA2. Recently, after deliberately using the self-time on the XA (no problem) it now uses a self-timer mode even if the self-time hasn't been selected/set. The odd part is, if I actually use the self-timer, I get about 17 beeps before the shutter trips. With the self-timer 'off' it self-times anyway, but only 10 beeps worth. It doesn't matter what f-stop or shutter speed, it's always the same.. 10 beeps, then the shutter trips. Anyone have a suggestion or is this just the end for this little cam? I really like it, so I'm hoping there is a solution. Thanks in advance.
