Having problems with your Canon Rebel XS / Eos 1000D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f& EF 75-300mm f Lens ?

I have a Canon 1000d and it appears to take great pictures when viewed on the lcd screen or computer but when I get photos developed they appear to be a bit dark. The pictures are taken in auto mode. I have read somewhere that the factory settings need adjusting and it needs to be sent back. It is no longer under warranty. Has anyone else had this problem?

Answers :

Reset the menus to factory setting or default settings. You can also try this: remove the battery and let it sit for at least 24 hours. This should reset all setting to default.Also you can adjust the settings in the menus to darken the pictures slightly.
You may want to call Canon, they have great support. Ask the support if needed for repairs, and of course make sure to ask how much as well.

I own Canon S3 IS digital PowerShot camera. I have taken many pictures, but wanted to make some adjustments to some of the manual settings, as I am getting more comfortable with the camera, and would like to try pictures without using the AUTO mode.

W1 Sharpening I am new to the Sony W1 and I have read somewhere that the camera should be set to the P mode and the sharpening to the ( - ) minus and it would yeild the best results. I am confused, why would you want the picture to be less sharp if your shooting nature for example. Wouldn't it be better to use the + setting?

I have been having problems getting sharp pictures. Especially indoors. I have the cool pix 6000 and reset all my settings to the factory settings. My pictures indoors seem almost "filtered"...not sharp at all. I took some pics outside and they are great. Shouldn't the auto setting adjust to take great pics inside and out?? Any help would be appreciated.

Flash has stopped working on my Nikon D40. I've tried a factory reset, tried to get to the flash setting but that menu option is no longer available (highlighted) in any mode. I'm thinking it's broken and not a setting thing. Everything else works fine and it still takes pictures just without the flash. The flash pops up when needed but no flash obviously.

There's a common problem in the flash arm. I found this link that shows a simple repair. If you use this and make the repair yourself, understand that you will void your warranty if you have one. Also, do not touch the bulb as you'll get oil on it ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

When turning on the camera, the card reader light flashes sometimes for a full minute before you can take a picture, I am using a Olympus xD 2GB memory card which works fine after the card reader light quits flashing.

Hi there, i just bought a 60D and trying all the functions it has. When im on any creative mode and the lens is set to AF, i cant seem to take a picture or even adjust the AF mode. i even couldnt open the menu itself etc.. i really need your help with this. I'm wondering if the unit I bought has a damage or i pressed something that make it wont work..

I have a Nikon S3000 digital camera in blue and i recently bought a Sandisk 8 gb card for it and before i had a 4 gb card, as well a Sandisk. My 4 gb card worked fine and recorded videos but my 8 gb card does take pictures but its a bit slow and it will start to record video but after ten seconds or so it will say that this card cannot be read. Any help to what settings i need to change or is this the wrong card? Thank you.

Sandisc makes cards in various speeds or "classes". For videos, it's best to use a class 6 or better card. Sounds like your new 8GB card is a class 4 or lower. ... Nikon Coolpix S3000 Digital Camera

I have a new (3 weeks) D700 and while taking photos yesterday with camera and a 16-35mm lens, the exposure meter went ape. Pictures taken ok but ERR started to flash where shutter speed reading should be displayed in viewfinder. Tried everything, including resetting to factory settings, detaching and reattaching lens, checking switches, and then went home in despair. At home I switched to a 50mm lens and the problem disappeared. I put the 16-35mm lens back and problem seemed to have disappeared.

Focus Problem I recently bought Olympus C-750. The real problem i have with it so far is that when I point the camera towrds the subject, its focus is adjusted automatically and the subject looks very focused and clear, but when i press the shutter button, the camera re-focuses and makes the subject blurr and in the end pictures come out very blurry. Kindly help me out with that, i.e: do i need to do some setting to avoid that??? and plus i cannot find the manuual focus option in the camera.

I have the C740, which I believe works very similarly if not identically. Unless you have the camera in full time auto focus, I don't believe it actually focuses on the subject until you've pressed the shutter button half way. Until then, the subject ...

Over exposure The exposure settings on the camera have suddenly become fixed - I can't change them either through fixing shutter speed, OEV, or any other settings. Even tried a factory reset by selecting 'initialize' from the menu, but the problem persists. High or low exposure settings are visible on the viewfinder (i.e. changing the settings shows the picture getting darker or lighter on the screen), but once the picture is shot, it's fixed at an overexposed state.
