Having problems with your Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera ?

Trouble with my Canon 5D

\015 My charger is saying that two of my batteries are fully charged but they are not registering in my camera that they are charged. Is it the charger? Or could it be my camera? Or both batteries? I just recently switched from using my grip to not. Could that have screwed things up? I guess I'll have to buy a new charger to see if that's the case. Has anyone ever had this problem and it turned out to be the camera and not the charger/batteries? I guess I'm just wondering if I should send it in to Canon.\015\012Thanks so much!\015\012Cheers,\015\012Missy\015

Answers :

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera\015\012which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the\015\012camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

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? Cheers Geraint Evans


Is this a problem with this lens only ? Try this lens on a friend's XSI/450D or try another lens on your camera body. Try all 3 AF modes. ... Canon EOS 450D Digital Camera

CANT WRITE TO UNLOCKED SD CARD I've tried repeatedly to write files to various sd memory cards in my ZS1 and it always gives me the message that the card is locked and can't be written. The cards are UNlocked physically, and I have no trouble writing to them when they are inside other cameras (Canon & Fuji). Is this a defect of the Panasonic or is it fixable?


Are you sure that the lock / unlock tab isn't getting moved to the lock position when inserted AND then moved back to the unlock position when removed? Stranger things have happened. Some cards have lock / unlock tabs that are so flimsy ... Panasonic DMC-ZS1 Digital Camera

I am having trouble photographing birds. Do I use the telephoto lens or the wide angle lens? I also have a macro lens for my Canon EOS 400D SLR Also what settings do I take them at. I have a tripod but the birds are too quick so they have to be for hand held. I am finding that when taking them with the telephoto lens they are not sharp and the background is blurred and not good. Thank you Val


Use the telephoto lens.. wide angle will tend to distort the image and provide too much detail( distraction) around the object of interest. Bird pictures become more interesting when they are mainly of the bird. So when you look through the lens, zoo ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

When I turn the camera on, the canon logo appears on the display and the red light in back above the menu button keeps blinking, but nothing happens. When I turn it on in the "taking pictures" mode or "view pictures" mode, it just hangs and acts like it has trouble reading the CF card. I've tried multiple cards and had the same problem, so I think it's the camera and not the cards. Any ideas?

I recently bought a Canon A590. I've taken perhaps 20 photos on half a dozen occasions and I'm having trouble getting the photos onto my computer (only 2 years old, up to date). I can usually only retrieve about 30% of the photos completely, another 50% "half" the photo with the other portions white, gray or black, then 30% I can't access at all. I'm not sure where to start to fix this problem; at this point I'm ready to return the camera and be done withit!
