Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

On my Canon 5D, my menu, review, etc, do not work. My auto focus does not work.

Answers :

Since when did this issue started ? anything happened that might have caused this ?
Have you tried a hard reset? Removing all cell batteries in addition to your battery pack. This doesn't always work, but should be done early just to rule out a ram buffer over run issue. Leave those out long enough to have the Ram and Capacitors drain off to local ground. This can take an hour or so.

Then, I wonder if you have spoken to the place of purchase, hoping this was a pros' camera shop and not Best Buy (don't bother with those guys.) But, a professionals camera shop could really help you.

I doubt you camera has any real problems requiring factory support but it may come to that.

Just for kicks, can you see your menu display on your in camera display or when you use video out to a TV set? This is sort of reaching here, but stay with me on the thinking outside the box stuff.

Hi. I have a Canon Xsi/450D Camera.

Camera shuts down after shutter button is pressed. It shuts down halfway through the shutter operation. Everything else works fine-reviewing pictures, settings in menu, focusing, exposure settings etc. The camera focuses ok when the shutter button is half pressed then when you press the shutter button fully, the mirror goes up, shutter appears to open then the camera shuts down with no power. Only way to get mirror etc back to normal is to remove the battery and refit. When camera is turned b

Hi, I've just recieved my nikon d90 back from a repair and service, and although everything appears to be working fine, whenever I want to change shooting modes,( auto, P, M, flash off etc), they only work once I have selected them, and then turned the camera off and back on. In other words I cannot be shooting in the Auto mode and then switch to "flash off auto"....all that happens is that the auto focus works but the shutter will not operate. If I switch the camera off and on however, I can t

I'm going to assume at this point that the camera has been serviced correctly. What I'd suggest is that you look in your manual and find where you can reset your camera back to the factory default settings. Okay here are a few thoughts that might be ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens

Similar to another post, I dropped my Canon Rebel XS (strap caught a chair) and it landed on my tile floor. Everything seems to work fine except the auto focus. Because I thought it landed lens first I bought another 18-55mm lens. However when I put the new lens on the auto focus on does not work on this one either. Any ideas whats on what is going on?

I have a new k20D I have had it less than a week and I can't seem to get the auto focus to work. I can manually focus but when on auto I get the red square for a second and then it goes off it does not move the lens into focus and it does not beep.

Good Morning I went hiking in broad daylight this past weekend and the autofocus would not work. I have a Canon 40D with a TAmron 18-270. I used av, tv, p, m and auto and I could not autofocus the camera. All I could do is to switch to manual focus to get it to work. When the lens was set to AF all you could is hear is it racking back and forth tying to focus. VERY FRUSTRATING.. Any ideas of what it may be or a setting I might have set accidentally. Any help is appreciated. Bob

When I turn on the camera, it will AF once, then nothing. None of the menus will work, none of the functions work, cannot review pics. If I switch to manual and back to auto, it will AF once.

Canon eos 450d. When switched on, the display does not show ie shutter speed, battery level, iso etc etc. It works fine when the auto display is disabled and can be switched on and off using the disp button on the camera body but will not come on when it is enabled.

Also, you should be able to use the Disp button even in auto display mode, which ... Canon EOS 450D + EF 75-300mm lens Digital Camera
