My Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI will not automatically focus. The little AF points don't show red to signify it is focusing. The camera just takes a blurry picture. It was working perfectly one minute and the next it wasn't. I tried taking the battery out and the points would turn red a few times then they would quit working again. Please give me an idea what might be wrong. Thanks,

My Panasonic DMC-FH1 stopped working after less than a month of use. It has been treated with care, not dropped or thrown about. It powers up, the lens automatically extends, but it cannot focus. After about 10 seconds the display reads: SYSTEM ERROR (FOCUS). I have tried recharging the battery, and leaving the camera powered down for an extended period. The owner's manual does not reference this problem. Any thoughts? Thanks you, Brian

My 18-55 and 55-200 lenses on my D40X will only work in the manual focus mode. (In other words, the autofocus mode has stopped working.) The problem first developed with the 55-200 lens and later with the 18-55. Any ideas?

Hi. I use my Nikon D2x and 80-200 f2.8 zoom extensively, generally with a Hama cable release. Recently, the set-up stopped working. The camera focuses, but the release will not trip the shutter. The only clue (with a freshly formatted 16Gb CF card in use) is r17 in the viewfinder, although the manual fails to mention what this means. The cable release works perfectly on my D700 with the same lens. Anyone any ideas? Paul Perton Cape Town

Hello, I have a Fuji FinePix 4700 Zoom Digital Camera. Recently the display stopped working and to have that repaired I guess will cost more than the camera is actually worth now. Any advise I could do as in DIY? This is still such a well designed gadget. I think I caused the display break down by using the false batteries. Any ideas? Thank you. Claus

Sometimes the autofocus doesn't work. It is switched to af. When I turn the camera on it will normally focus but after 1 or a couple of pictures it will not autofocus. If I move the switch to Manual I can take the picture and then if I move the switch back to m/a it will focus and keep focusing and I can take a few few more frames then then the auto cocus stops working again and I have to switch back to M and so on. I never know when it wount work. Thank you.

Auto focus I have only had my camera for a short period of time and it worked great when I got it but now I can't focus in a picture. I have messed around with all of the settings but nothing is working. The automatic focus is not working at all. I can't even zoom in or out because the pics are still blurry.

My Nikon P80 Coolpix started to have problem focusing. Auto focus now only occasionally works (it can sometimes focus and the green "in focus" indicator would come on). Most times, the auto focus does not work (the display and the actual pictures are all blurred). It's not covered by the warranty any more (more than 2 years after we bought it). Any ideas?

Zoom Error Hi all, New to site and hope you can help me! I have a Fuji S3000 that has worked very well for last couple of years and all of sudden has packed up, coming up with "zoom error" when you turn it on. I have done the obvious (change the batteries) but to no avail. Any ideas. I have recently been to the North Pole with this camera and it worked perfectly well at -40 degrees (after warming the batteries!) and has only worked for a day since returning!

Won't focus I was out shooting some sports the other day and all of a sudden my camera (D70 with a 200mm lense) would not focus and started going a little crazy. however, it would still take a shot occasionally. when i tried to change the menu, the menu itself on the monitor was jumping around and wouldnt let me select anything. then suddenly it worked again. then again, just as suddenly, it stopped working. this has never happened before and I'm at a total loss other than to take it to a dealer

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?

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

My D80 was purchased in April 2008 along with the Nikkor 18-200mm VR zoom lens. The camera and lens worked flawlesly until this past week end. The cameral stopped focusing in auto mode with no warning. I did hear a whining noise when I tried a Tamron 11-18mm wide angle lens. The auto focus did not work with that lens either.
