Having problems with your Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera ?
Canon EOS Rebel T1i won't take a picture when I zoom.
Which mode are you on? When you zoom in, the maximum aperture size decreases to f/5.6 in the kit lens. Sometimes it may be too dark or shutter speed too slow so the camera doesn't shoot. If you're in "P" (program) mode, full auto mode or any of the Basic Modes, the aperture/shutter is auto. In other modes (Av, M, etc) you can turn the dial on the top of the camera to adjust shutter speed to a lower number.

My Canon EOS rebel suddenly won't take pictures in dim light. The flash pops up and blinks and blinks trying to register the image but won't ever autofocus and take the picture. The light has to be very bright for it to take a picture. I have gone through all of the settings and everything seems to be correct. Any thoughts?
To autofocus the sensor needs a fair amount of contrast (light and dark eges) to operate. If you're trying to take a photo in a dim room of a dark colored subject for instance the focus won't lock and the camera won't take the picture. Try switching ...

I have a Canon Digital Rebel EOS and when I take pictures everything works except I can't see any pictures on my view screen. When I go back to re-view them they are just black and when I view my card on my computer, the pictures are just black. When I take pictures the count on the card doesn't even go down. I am lost.

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. These are the accessories that I have: Canon - EOS 10.1MP Digital SLR Camera - Black EOS 40D Canon - 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens 0345B002
Use the highest ISO setting and the largest aperature (low number) possible. A tripod would help as the camera is going to take a slow shot if it has a slow lens (telephoto lens' are slow--high f-stop value) You want to use the kit lens on the camera ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
My 7 year old canon eos rebel XT digital will not take pictures in auto mode..no focus points light up..when in manual, it will take a picture but it's always very blurred..
The most likely thing is that you have motion blur in your prints from \015\012using too slow a shutter speed. Other possible problems are too wide an\015\012 aperture, bad focus, or something in your workflow that's horking the \015\012images. ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I have a Canon zoom lens EF-5 18-55mm for my Canon EOS 450D. I am having trouble with my AF. If I set it on AF it will not focus automatically, but if I manually turn the lens for a close up it will then take the picture. Then and only then will the AF for long distance shot come into operation! After taking that shot it reverts back to not focussing. What can I do, if anything, to rectify this malfunction?

I have Canon EOS 300D digital Rebel. I have had intermittent problem with the camera display screen going blank even though I put a freshly charged battery in. Usually I can take a couple pictures then the camera becomes non-responsive with a blank display screen; if I pull the battery out and re-insert it, the camera will take a few more pictures before the same things happens. Any suggestions?
