Having problems with your Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera ?

How to operate a Canon 40D.

\015 I'm looking for a "How to Guide" for my newly bought Canon EOS 40D camera. Something that will give me step by step directions on how to get that perfect picture. Something that will guide me through the different settings on the camera. Can you recommend a good DVD that will provide me with this information? I have found a DVD online from a Michael Andrew, but don't know anything about him. Would you recommend his DVD? Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Marsha\015

Error 99 keeps appearing on my Canon 40D. I changed the battery and that worked for one shot and then back to error 99. Camera will now not operate. Have had it over a year and no problems until now. Could it have been because of shooting quite a lot recently in the "burst" mode? Thanks Jim R

Shutter will fire intermitantly on Canon 40D. It focuses but will not fire but if pressed repeatedly it will fire after several shutter presses.

Flashless photograghy I bought a this camera about a month ago. I would like to know what settings I need to put it on so I can take good pictures of a stage performence without having to use my flash.

Autofocus has failed on the CAnon EOS 40D. I can power the camera up with lens in manual but as soon as I go to autofocus it becomes unresponsive. The viewfinder goes black. Swapped batteries and lenses. I've had this body for five days. It is a canon refurb. I will also be contacting the dealer.


It's not the Autofocus, there's no 'non-engineer' fix. Lens and slider have failed, it's basically broken inside and I suspect it was the original fault. It's about £160-200 outside of warranty to fix via a canon authorised repair agent such as ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

No, it's not likely to be compatible. The problem is that Canon did not update the drivers for many of its older cameras under the Vista operating system. So you're likely to run into problems downloading directly from the camera using the software ... Canon Digital Cameras
