I have a D5000 camera w/ kit lens VR 55-200, less than a year old. Recently and only occasionally what is happening is when I press the shutter release button, the lens won't focus, it won't move in or out and it makes a odd noise, not the usual lens motor noise, but an odd squeaking noise, like it's trying to move but is stuck. The only way to correct it is to either shut the camera off and turn it back on again, or switch to manual focus, then back to auto. The battery is full, so it's not

Good Morning I went hiking in broad daylight this past weekend and the autofocus would not work. I have a Canon 40D with a TAmron 18-270. I used av, tv, p, m and auto and I could not autofocus the camera. All I could do is to switch to manual focus to get it to work. When the lens was set to AF all you could is hear is it racking back and forth tying to focus. VERY FRUSTRATING.. Any ideas of what it may be or a setting I might have set accidentally.

I read the lens getting stuck "Switch off and swirtch on again" solutions given by you,other than trying compressed air, but there was no joy (including tapping on the palm). In fact for a fraction of a second, the lens did focus but then again, we were back to normal (non-working mode). Would be grateful if you have any further tips. Thanks

I took my camera to the beach, took a picture and put it back in my bag. I then took the camera back out to take another picture the lens extended but then it went back in again it went to go back out but stopped and a loud beeping noise started and a message saying lens error restart camera. I don't know how to restart the camera and if that means turning it of then on it still doesn't work. What can I do now?


If your camera went into "standby" mode, the lens retracted and you may have thought it was off. You put it into the bag and slight pressure on a button reactivated it and the lens tried to come out but may have been prevented by something in the bag ... Canon PowerShot A480 Digital Camera

Won't Focus I have had my Canon Powershot SD1000 for about 9 months now. I have had problems with the lens error and it getting stuck but have always been able to get it to work eventually. I had another bout with the lens getting stuck, was able to get it unstuck but now it won't focus at all. Normally I press the shutter down half way to get it to focus on my subject, but now it simply won't focus. I'm wondering if maybe my settings are off, or if it's an internal problem.

You still have a bad lens the internal focus gear is out of alignment. or is offset. a repaired or new lens is required. Sorry :( ... Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
