Having problems with your Canon EOS 30D Body Only Digital Camera ?
Canon AF Issues
\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012I am using a 30D with a 17-85 lense, recently when I attempt to take a long range shot the camera/lense will not lock in and focus. The lense will move back in forth and unable to lock on a focal point. I have tested and it is only happening on long shots, if I zoom in on say an item 25-50 feet away it is fine but when I go outside that range it cannot get focused.\015\012\015\012Thanks in advance for your assitance.\015\012\015\012Kevin\015
Change from auto focus to manual focus or focus using only one focal square and change the setting to One Shot. You may need to shoot in Manual (M) mode though. Any of the "auto" modes will not let you.

Our camera when you turn it on has a blank screen and you cannot take pictures. You can review pictures and see the different menu modes, but the screen is otherwise black. We have had it repaired once for almost $200 by a Canon repair centre with the exact same problem about 18 months ago. They said it was a shutter issue?? It sounds like it could be a CCD issue? I have written Canon customer service over 2 months ago, suggesting a defect, to which I have received no reply.

Hello. The flash on my Canon IXUS 980 IS seems unable to work. The camera is about 2 years old. I have contacted Canon who advised taking out the battery for at least 30 mins and fully recharging it, which yielded nothing helpful. Is this a common issue and can it be fixed cheaper than the minimum £60 that a Canon service shop requires? Thanks for any help.

I have a Canon EOS Digital Rebel, and just recently noticed an issue with the focus. I can't seem to focus in on anything, regardless of the distance, setting, lens, or if I'm in MF/AF. I'm guessing it has to be some sort of internal issue, but I don't know what this would be or how to fix it.

I've had my Canon SD880 for awhile and have never had issues uploading pictures to my old PC. However I recently switched to Mac and seem to be having issues now.

I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing. The camera store we bought the camera and the flash from says it looks like a synchronization issue and that it is a hardware problem with the boot. Their sugges

I have two issues with my Canon EOS Rebel XS.
