Having problems with your Canon EOS 1100D / Rebel T3 Digital Camera ?

Cmmunication between lens and camera is faulty.



Answers :

Canon can have tight tolerances for their lenses and camera bodies. Some aftermarket lenses don't mate well. If the problem occurs with other lenses as well, try cleaning the contacts on the lens and camera with a clean, soft cloth or rub them VERY LIGHTLY with a new, clean pencil eraser, taking care no particles drop into the camera or lens. If this doesn't correct the issue you probably have a damaged contact or lose contact in the camera or lens.

Wobbly lens I have just purchased a Sony W130. It is my first ever camera. When the camera is off the lens section can be moved about 1/2mm with gentle movement of the camera. When zoom is fully extended it can be moved side to side by gentle pushing about 1 1/2mm. Is this normal or is the camera faulty? It doesn't seem to be affecting the pictures but everytime I use it I get a vibration warning on the screen.

My camera 'Samsung ST61' is a new camera, I got it about 2 months ago now, and it has been working perfectly fine, although when i previously charged it about a day ago and turned it on the camera lens came on like normal and the shutter went out but it beeped about 2 times and shuts off again to its normal state. I am really confused to why it may be doing this, but when I took it to a shop today they said it may be faulty as the lens is a little bent when it goes out? What am I supposed to do
