Having problems with your Canon EOS 500n 35mm Film Camera ?

Canon eos 500 not working

\015 My Canon EOS-500 camera I bought second hand 13 years ago suddenly does not want to work. When locked or switched on the only mark displayed on the LCD panel is the film-loaded mark. I've tried replacing the batteries with new one's, but the problem persists. This is a fantastic camera, and I plan on using it for many years to come.\015

Hello deon58,

It could be that a sensor or an IC in your camera doesn't function properly anymore. I would recommend that you take it to Canon authorized service center to find out exactly what is wrong rather than attempt a do-it-yourself.
Repairs shouldn't be that expensive, considering that the IC's are pretty cheap these days..
Do the right thing and take it to service center if you wish to use it for many more years to come ;)

Cheers!

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.

I have a Canon EOS 50D Digital Camera and use 3 different Canon Lenses. I am getting "Error 30". I have taken the internal battery out and re-installed the firmware. At times I can shoot quite a number of shots before getting the error. But, once I start getting the error, it comes about every 4 or 5 shots. I believe this is very similar to the "Error 99" in the Canon 30D, which I also have. The 30D has been sent to Canon for repair and worked for a while and now it gets the Error 99 every coupl

Canon EOS Rebel XT with EFS 18-55mm lens. Trouble-free for two years. During a weekend of lots of use, suddenly the camera would not autofocus. Switching to manual focus, the camera worked. Then it started working okay in autofocus. Later that day quit altogether. (Would not release shutter even in manual mode.) Removed the lens and cleaned the contacts on both lens and camera, started working okay but only temporary. Went through several cycles of this over the weekend, so I'm not sure

The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing.
