Having problems with your Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera ?
Should I buy an extended warranty?
\015 Hi- I just bought the EOS Rebel XS for my daughter for a grad present. No one in my family has owned a dslr before so I don't have a clue as to potential problems. I did not buy an extended warranty at the time of purchase but can still buy it within the next 4 days. What is the general consensus on ext warranties for a Canon and the Rebel XS in particular?Thanks for any advice you can provide.tw.\015

In May we purchased a Canon Power Shot 590IS. We love the camera, however, battery life with camera is poor at best. With new high energy digital batteries we get approxiamtely 40 - 45 pictures, with 4 differnt manufactures rechargable batteries, we get 12 - 15 pictures, before the batteries require replacement. The camera was retruned to Best Buys where we purchased it aong with an extended warranty. They keep the camera for 10 days, retruned it saying nothing was wrong. Any suggestions?

Review switch Having had no problems since new 18 months ago, my A85 is stuck in review mode leaving me unable to take any pictures. The switch now has no effect. The unit has been very well looked after and not subjected to any shocks or damage. Is this a return to Canon to fix it or would it be economical simply to buy a new one? (not under warranty)
It seems that the switch to toggle between camera mode and playback is broken, as it happens in most of the cases. the replacement of the switch will do the job. ... Canon PowerShot A85 Digital Camera
Hi there, I have a Canon IXUS 90 IS - the lens is extended out and won't retract when pressing the 'on' button.

Hi. I have a Canon G9 camera. I bought in October 8, 2007 but did not register the camera's warranty until a few days ago. Here's the problem. I dropped the camera a weeks ago... Everything was working fine, no problems. After I bought an extra battery I tried turning the camera on but would not power up. In fact will only power on if I insert and remove the battery several times. Once I get it going, however, it powers off with the lens extended. Please tell me what my options are, s

I can only take a few pictures on my camera before it either shuts itself off and/or won't turn on again. When I try to turn it on the red light flashes but the lens doesn't extend, and then the light goes out. It's like the batteries are dead. I've tried brand new ones, rechargeable ones, etc. It's not under warranty anymore so I'm not really sure what my options are.

Focus Trouble All of the sudden, my camera won't focus. The menu works, & I can view old pictures clearly, but I can't take a picture w/o it being blurry. The lens does extend in & out, & the camera sometimes powers off. (Not always.) My husband swears up & down that he didn't drop, or do, anything to the camera. I didn't either. This camera is only 4 mos. old. What is wrong with my it? Lens problem? Could this be covered under warranty?

Incorrect metering I have a Nikon D40x. About every 100 or so frames that i take, there is a problem with the Nikon Metering system. It incorrectly chooses the Aperture and Shutter Speed. Outdoors, it sometimes overexposes pictures. Indoors, it makes them very dark or black. Should i take this in to get it fixed? I have extended warranty...Alas, this is an intermittent problem. Thoughts?
It may be a problem with the camera, but you should be using the manual modes....they are much more accurate. if you are worried about it being a defect issue, then send it in.....I have one also, and have found it to be a bit slow on the ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
Blurry pictures I have had this camera for a couple years and have taken thousands of pictures with it. I have been very happy until recently most of the pictures are blurry and look like the camera is not focusing properly. I am wondering if it is possible (if not common) for grit to get in the lens mechanism restricting the lens from moving to the fully extended position. I am considering a professional cleaning but don't know the cost/benefit when weighed against just buying a new camera.

I dropped my camera while it was on and the lens was extended. And I dropped it right on the lens. And now when I turn the camra off, the lens does not go back inside the camera.

My LCD screen is broken on my Polaroid t737. I don't know how it happened, and I didn't take any action untill now. I didn't have the screen cover off yet.
