Having problems with your Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera ?
Canon 40D Auto focus not working.
\015 Hello, I have a Canon 40D. I used it yesterday and the auto-focus seemed to freeze. I'd press the shutter down halfway and it wouldn't take the picture. After I took the battery out, it seemed to fix the problem......but, I don't want it to happen again. Any answers? Thanks.\015

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

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?

My Canon EOS Rebel XS digital camera has suddenly stopped taking pictures. It will not focus even though it is on the auto focus setting. The first set of numbers are flashing and there is a flashing dot behind the ISO 800. It was working fine when I used it one time and then the next time it wouldn't. I can view pictures, but cannot take them on any setting except A-DEP and it's not focused even then. Please Help!

I can't seem to get my autofocus to work on my new Canon T1. The mode dial is switched to full auto, the fous mode switch is on AF, and the Image Stabilizer switch is in the "on" position. When I depress the shutter halfway, I get flash indication, some digital numbers, but no change in focus, no beeping, even though it is on and the focus confirmation light does not illuminate. I've searched through the manual to see what I am doing wrong, but can find nothing. Any help you can offer would
