Having problems with your Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera ?

ISO stays on Auto. I push the ISO button to change the ISO off of Auto and it doesn't do anything on my 40D

Answers :

The ISO is set to Auto and can't be changed when shooting in Basic Modes (all of the icons and the green circle). ISO can only be adjusted in Creative Modes (P, Av, Tv, A-DEP, M). If you want to adjust the ISO in Creative Mode, press the ISO button and then turn the dial next to the shutter trigger.

Button-be-dead Ok, so this might sound kind of stupid but my camera was in my purse and I didn't drop it or anything, but when I went to take it out to take pictures, the button you push to take the picture was already half down so it won't stop auto-focusing. I can't zoom in or out, look through my pictures, turn the flash off, delete pictures, or change picture styles. I know it's because of the button already being down halfway but I really need to know how to fix it and get the button back

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged

Not focusing I'm not sure what happened, nothing seems to be obstructing and to my extent of knowledge nothing has happened to my camera. However when I turn it on the lens comes out once, goes back in, and comes out again.
