Focus failure Hi. I hope you can help. I've a canon 40D and am using it remotely with the EOS utility v 2.3. I am only able to take an image when the live view mode is active. When inactive and I use either the shoot button or the timer, an error flashes up "focus failure". The camera focuses fine in live mode. Have dragged my way through the instruction manual and cannot find a troubleshooting section covering this problem. Hope you can help. Thanks Joe

I have a Caonon 40D. I thought I was having a lens problem at first. However after using 2 other lenses I have found out it is my Camera. No matter how clear and crisp the image is in the view finder. After the photo is taken and loaded into PS4. The image is blurry and unsharp. I have reset all camera settings to factory with Canon. And I am still getting the same results. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

I have a Canon EOS 40D When I switch it on all appears fine. When I take a photo the shutter remains open & all power is lost. I then need to remove & re-install the battery to recover power.

Before I decide next steps I was hoping someone out there could help.


See if the problem is related to the memory card. Start by ejecting the memory card and after saving to disk via card reader, format the card. If there is a problem writing to the card, it will probably show up during the format process. Or, inser ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
