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

How do you remove the lens if it placed on upside down?



Answers :

There is no mechanical way of placing the lens on the camera upside down. There is only one way the lens will fit into the body and it takes about 1/8 turn to lock it in place. There should be no effort to installing the lens on the camera. To remove a locked lens make sure the camera is turned off hold the camera in your right hand close to your body and with your palm up. You will now be looking at the left side of the camera, there is a D shaped button just behind the lens mount. Wrap your hand around the lens so your thumb is positioned right at this button. Push the button in with the end of your thumb as you gently turn the lens away from your body. It will detach in 1/8th turn and come away from the camera. To reinstall the lens line up the dots could be white or red set the lens into the camera body and turn the lens gently clockwise and you will hear a click. It takes less effort to do this going on and coming off then it does to open a Peanut Butter jar that has already been opened once.

Locked lens The lens is out and won't retract. This started out happening occasionally, and I found that if I removed the battery and re-inserted it, then the lens would close. Now it has come out and won't close at all. Even when I place it on the charger, it has made a little whirring sound but will not retract. Can anyone help?

Lens Error I purchased a Nikon P90 a month ago; and it was working just fine. A couple of days ago during a photo shoot (after taking 190+ photos without any trouble), the camera went crazy..

The lens starts to zoom out & in for a couple of times; then this error message comes up and just hangs. Tried removing the card, battery and even tried re-charging the cell.

I'm a new user of the D90 (and digital in general), and on my first major trip with it I had problem with the shutter not working. I would take some images, put the camera down without turning it off and move on to the next spot. At the second stop the camera would not work.
