Having problems with your Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera ?

Canon EOS 40D not working when turned on

\015 When I turn the camera on and push the shutter button, the camera will not focus and it will not make the shutter work and it makes a clicking noise as if it is having an electrical misfiring in the camera. \302\240Do I have the wrong setting(s) or does the camera need to be repaired?\015

Answers :

Took to a camera store and they put my lens on a different camera body and lens didn't work. So the problem is the auto focus in the lens itself. It is nothing I can fix myself.  I am now sending it to Canon for repair - hopefully won't need a new lens!  Thanks for the help!
I'm sorry to tell you this but you do NOT have anything set wrong. To test my theory turn your camera to full auto. Next make sure your switch on the lens is set to auto. Then just try taking some shots of some objects across the room. If that doesn't allow you to take pictures do the exact same test with a different lens. That way you've taken the lens out of the equation. Sorry I couldn't give you a better answer but I'm pretty sure you'll need to return the camera to cannon.

Canon 450D is not being recognised by my computer (I run xp 32-bit). When I turn on the camera, windows comes up with a "install new hardware" option.

Dark pictures I have a Canon EOS REbel T2 with the standard 28-90 lens. It had been working fine, but now my pictures are (almost all) coming out very dark and grainy. Further, I note that if I turn the camera 90 degrees to that a "portrait" picture -- 6" tall and 4" wide, I see a dark rectangle in the picture in the bottom right quadrant. I always set the camera to full program (the green rectangle). I have been using Fuji 400 speed file of late. Do you have any idea what I"m doing wrong?

Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure. ... Canon EOS Rebel T2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera
