Having problems with your Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera ?

Pictures with light gray or blue areas show a "hair" type mark. I assume it's on the sensor. Can you help?



Answers :

Most camera shops offer a cleaning for $20-$40. Personally, with how unbelievably fragile the sensor is I wouldn't risk cleaning it myself unless I knew exactly what I was doing. The hair could be on the sensor, on the mirror or inside one of your lenses...

I bought a used canon xs from craigslist. I think a hard lesson learned already. Anyway the camera appears to be in great condition. The problem is whenever I take a picture it does not come out right. The colors are way off. Some colors look fine, blue will come out beige, gray or green. This is with the flash indoors or outdoors with just normal light and the camera on full auto. I called canon and they said it sounds like the sensor is going bad. Just wondering if anyone has any advic


The experts at Canon are probably right. But, check the white balance and make sure it is on "auto WB". Go into the camera menu and find "reset" to get the camera back to factory default settings. If it still doesn't work, then you probably need a se ... Digital Cameras

Hi, can I first ask do you charge a fee for your help. If not, can you help with the following problem? I've recharged the battery for my Canon 40D and placed it back in the camera. The red light flickers and then no power at all. I've done this a couple of times thinking it may be the battery but the last time I tried it then flashed red and a blue light at the same time. This blue light is the printer light next to the Menu button. I don't know how to fix this? Can you help? Thanks.


Try replacing the battery. If the battery has gone bad, charging it will do no good. If it is a new battery, you may have faulty battery terminals in your camera, the memory card switch may be bad, or some other internal failure may have occurred. ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

I have a Nikon D300. I can't seem to figure out what's wrong, I assume it's a setting issue. In low light situations even with the flash I can't seem to stop action or even properly light things. I have had any kind of issue like this on a camera before. In situations where I should be able to handhold I am using a monopod. I know there is enough light to not have to handhold, I mean I am using the flash. Frankly even with available light this should not be an issue.
