Having problems with your Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera ?

I am using Canon 1000D dslr for more than 18months, it was working fine until last Sunday. I went outside and started taking few shots... it was not focusing properly (or should I say not at all!) and pictures are coming blurred. When I press the shutter button half, it should run the motor (in autofocus mode) and focus, but it is not doing anything (i.e. no red dots are coming)... what could be the problem? Thanks for any help.................


Answers :

The autofocus motor could be be broken, or the lens may not be communicating correctly with the camera. One thing that can help if it's not communicating correctly is to clean the lens contacts. If you take the lens off, you should see some gold plating on the plastic on the side of the lens that attaches to the camera. You can clean it by lighting rubbing it with a new, CLEAN pencil eraser. if that doesn't work, you may need a new lens unfortunately. best of luck!

My DZ-MV730E is malfunctioning. I have TDK DVD-R 1-2x 1.4gb disc in. Took several short vidios in succession then screen said RUN DISC REPAIR.

I bought a second hand d70s. it seems to have a problem. the shutter release button does not seem to do anything when pressed half way (like auto focus). I can only get autofocus to work if i program AE-L/AF-L button to AF-ON. I press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back, then press the shutter to take the shot. And if i set the AE Lock On, pressing the shutter button half way does not lock the exposure setting. so there seems to be an issue with the shutter button itself...is there an easy fi

I've lost all my photo's by pressing the 'transfer mode' button. I've run it through some file recovery software which says thay are within the camera but not on the sd card. The pictures are visible with the recovery software. However, that's as far as the software can go. When I attempt to transfer the found files to my computer it comes up with an error message. Is there a fix or have I lost them for good?

These movements are noticeable just through the viewfinder with the VR on. But without the VR, the view from the viewfinder makes no movement. i don

Camera shuts down after shutter button is pressed. It shuts down halfway through the shutter operation. Everything else works fine-reviewing pictures, settings in menu, focusing, exposure settings etc. The camera focuses ok when the shutter button is half pressed then when you press the shutter button fully, the mirror goes up, shutter appears to open then the camera shuts down with no power. Only way to get mirror etc back to normal is to remove the battery and refit. When camera is turned b

I have a HP camera CW450t camera and cannot turn it on with the power button on top. I know the batteries are good because I can turn on the camera with the review button and review the pictures that I have taken. When the power button is pressed the green light on the back of the camera flashes but the lens does not come out and the led screen does not come on. when you take your finger off of the on/off button the green light goes off as well.


Had the EXACT same problem with the CW450 model. I called support because I was mad and wanted it replaced. The support tech helped me through the issue. The answer is- NiMH. Alkaline batteries are unstable and not powerful enough for use with this c ... HP Digital Cameras
