Having problems with your Canon EOS-1Ds Mark II Digital Camera ?

Focusing screen fell out


\015 The little rectangular screen fell out and I have no instructions for putting it back in. THe manual just refers to 'the manual that came with the new focusing screen', which I don't have, since this is the original that came with the camera, I am not sure what to do?\015\012\015\012thanks\015

Answers :

There is a metal cradle inside the camera in the roof that flips down. Try firing the shutter without a lens attached, you'll be able to see the rectangular cradle(Tray) The Focusing screen is to be placed in the roof of the camera with the small tab facing OUT of the camera,.be sure to press in firmly with some pressure, but ensure that you support the tray while you do this so as not to damage it.do not touch the main part of the focusing screen Focusing screens get damaged very easily. Try only to touch the tab(make sure your hand is not making direct contact with the screen, as i learnt mine the hardway, you can wear apair of clean surgical gloves) The Cradle then lifts upwards and clicks in. Also note the lock in tab that holds the tray in place and check to see that its not slack, if it is, the tray will drop back halfway after firing the shutter and lifting the cradle/tray. to correct this, slightly push it in & fire the shutter again until you get the right amount of grip nd your tray stays up after the shutter is fired. It worked well for some time until it fell out again and irepeated the procedure above and added this time some very thin line of glue around the edge of the screen to keep it in place. Dont use epoxy based glues like super glue et al.

Lens broken my camera fell off a table and now the lens is screwed up. when i turn it on it is just a black screen. but if i press firmly on the right side of the lens, the picture blurs, fuzzes, and then comes into focus, once i take my finger off it goes black. so i can take pictures, but only with my finger on the lens. it seems like this is fixable. what can i do?


Not easily fixed. Sounds like you stripped the feeds for the lense, and it messed up the contacts. Try sending it to Kodak for repair, or taking it to a camera repair place. These devices are sensitive electronics, so you won't be able to fix it at h ... Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera

Focus camera will not focus, even sight screen is out of focus The camera will not focus. When switched on it beeps with a flashing green light near rthe view-finder and the lens housing extends.

I receive the E:61:00 error on screen, and the screen will not focus. I shook the camera around (per forums) and the screen focused for a minute, but would not zoom in out out. When I tried to zoom either way it would make a whirling sound. I opened my camera to have a tiny little piece, with "C 805" inscribed on it, to fall out. I do not know where this belongs, and still can not get my camera to focus. Help!

I tried to take a shot of the Vanderbilt baseball stadium, and it came out a little soft and out of focus. I was in Apperture priority at F8 to maximize the depth of field, exposure compensation -2/3EV, metered in the field, and tried to focus on the two guys sitting there in the midfield. Tried one shot AF, the manually tweaking it in OIS mode 2. On screen it looked fine, but on the computer screen not so much so. What could I have done to make it better? How can I set the focus to infinity?
