    sometimes we forget how complex these devices are. my apple has did the same thing.

    hope it works out well for you.

    they say barring any damage by force or water (which neither happened) it will be covered.

    so here's an update for those interested.

    the camera is on its way back from canon today. they said they needed to replace the "battery box" housing. it was covered.

    I am glad to hear that the problem was covered by warranty and you got quick turn around considering the holiday (assuming you are in the US).
