The sticky problem may caused by soda or food type of stain. It is best cleaned with amonia based cleaner such as "windex". You do not want to use too much solution on the area. So get a Qtip, windex and air spray. Wet ju ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Since you can't get into the menu, let's try a manual reset. Remove the card and the battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

My flash (EOS rebel T2i) isn't popping up automatically and i was advised to try wiggling the "manual release" button for the flash to the left and right and see if it will catch on the mechanism and then try pushing the button to see if the flash pops up. But I don't know how to do that...where is the manual release button?


The manual release button is located at the front of the camera a little above the lens to the right. It has a lightning icon just above it. ... Canon EOS 550D Rebel T2i Digital Camera

Shutter button on my digital rebel xt stopped working. I can press down far enough (halfway) to get it to focus but then it won't click all the way down and release. For several months before this final calamity, it would frequently happen that when I went to take a photo the button wouldn't engage at all and I'd have to try several times and miss the shot I wanted before I could get the shutter button to engage. Now that it's not working at all, I sent it to Canon for repair and have just rec


I know it sounds expensive but at least you know Canon will fix it properly with a limited warranty on the repair. Remember, they have to take the camera completely apart to reach that part. If you're interested in seeing how complicated it is, googl ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

My DSC-H9 will not display stored pictures or video. When I push the button to switch from picture taking to picture viewing it shuts off. Changed battery, memory stick, did "reboot", pulled battery for 30 seconds. Nothing made any difference. I can plug in to PC and view or pull pictures off. It's like the mode button is also a power button.

All of a sudden, my Canon Rebel SLR stopped focusing and I cannot depress the shutter button when on AF mode. I can press the shutter button on MF mode, but there is no focusing happening. Do you think it needs to be repaired? I've looked through the manual but cannot find any way to resolve the problem. The camera is only 3 months old.


Try this...remove the lens and fire off a few shots. Clean the contacts on the lens and camera body where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Re-attach the lens and try it. ... Canon Digital Rebel XSi Digital Camera

My Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 shows error code C:13:01 when the either of the current memory sticks I am using, is inserted. However, when I take out the memory stick out, and put on the camera, it shows the "internal memory full".But it does not gives any option to format it. The only one button on the panel is working and so the option of formating could not be done. I even tried to connect it to P.C. It shows four pictures. But again there is no option to either delete or cut the pictures. Pl. d

On my Sony Cybershot DSC-P8 camera, the shutter will not operate when I press the shutter button to take a picture. Everything else seems to be working. This happened all of a sudden. The camera took about 8 pictures, then after turning it off for about 2 hours, it would not take any more pictures. This happens even after I push the reset button, take the battery in & out and the memory stick in & out. I have not had any problems with this camera until now.


Electronic switch under shutter button is defective and you need to replace it under following part number.. (please select part number according to cabinet color of your DSC-P8)1-477-770-11 SWITCH BLOCK, CONTROL (SILVER) 1-477-770- ... Digital Cameras

This is a recently purchased camera that was working beautifully until recently. It just stopped taking pictures; when the shutter release is pressed, nothing happens. The only clue I have to what is happening came when I pressed the Quick View button and got a No Card message. I changed the CF card to one I took from my Canon Rebel XT and that I knew was working fine - again the message No Card when the QV button was pressed. Does that help at all in defining the problem? Any ideas what the pro

Sony camera turns on but screen is just bright white, can't see the images I'm taking or the menu. I can press the menu buttons and can tell that the buttons work because I hear the beeping noise.

Shutter sticks I have a older Rebel 300. It has worked great for years but the shutter is sticking. When you press the shutter the light will flash for several seconds, then take the pic, which by then is to late and ruined. Has anyone had this problem before ?


Does the light flash for 10 seconds, with a series of beeps getting faster before the picture is taken so you miss the shot, or are you saying the shutter stays open for several seconds giving you a whiteout picture?If the former, then th ...

I have a Canon Rebel Xt that occasionally has problems with the shutter button suddenly not working. The camera is still on and all the menu buttons continue to work. It acts like the lens decides to quit communicating with the camera body. The only fix I have found is to take the battery out for 10-15 sec. and it works like normal. Any advise on whats going on would be great, Thanks Brandon

I have a Digital Rebel 40 D camera less than 1 year old and I removed the memory card and I cannot get it to go back into the slot. The eject button is still depressed after I depressed it to eject the memory card out of it. This is the first time this has happened. I had the original Canon Rebel with over 100,000 pictures taken on it and this never happened. This camera has less than 5,000 shoots and not it is unusable. Any suggestions ? Thank you, Terry


Im no expert, but i would use a flashlight to look inside the memory card holder and see if anythings messed up, and maybe jiggle the eject button a bit, and just maybe the button doesnt come up again until you push in the memory card. give it a litt ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
