indi_canon_ccd + Canon EOS 500D [ERROR] Exposure failed to save image... Unspecified error

A few days ago, my Canon camera stopped taking pictures.

There are error messages in indi-logs: [ERROR] Exposure failed to save image... Unspecified error 

I changed the USB cable three times, changed the PC. The camera behavior was the same.
If I turn off the "Forced bulb", the camera well works with mirror lock up options and takes pictures, but no more than 30 seconds. If I turn on "Force bulb", camera locks up mirror, but not shut. Also there are warning messages in the indi-logs: [WARNING] Closing Nikon remote serial shutter failed. 

But on Win-host with EOS utility the camera works fine.

I don't know what happened, but the camera worked well before. I even took the same camera from a friend, but result is the same.

What can i do yet?

After launching gphoto2, the camera clicks and waits for about 20 seconds, then clicks again. After a few seconds, gphoto2 displays these messages:

<code>cin@debian:~$ gphoto2 --debug --debug-logfile=gphoto.txt --capture-image-and-download
ОШИБКА: Невозможно сделать снимок. (ERROR: Unable to take picture.)
