Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

Button sticks when taking pic

\015 I have a Canon digital xt rebel eos. When I take a picture sometimes the button wants to stick. I have to jiggle it and if that does not work I have to cut it off and back on and jiggle it. Is there any type oil or lubricant I can use to keep it from sticking>\015

Answers :

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 just the edge of the Qtip with windex and go around the edge of the release button. While moist blow the air spray. Try it one more time. This should clear any particle creating friction with the release button. Otherwise the top cover need to be disassembled to clean deeper. Hope this works. -James For further assistance, go to www.camerarepairjapan.com

Shutter too slow and pics of people blurry. I have the camera on auto setting, push button half way down, focus, then all the way, take the pic.

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.

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.

Will sometimes take images that are blurred and a browny red colour! This is inconsistant, I can take a really nice pic then the next one is blurred. I know the pic is going to be a bad one because usually you press the button and the pic shows up on the screen, if it is going to be a poor one, the screen stays blank for at least 30 seconds before displaying the image. I would rather have this problem fixed than have to buy a new camera!

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!! I used to take pics and the flash would light 2-3 times giving a great, bright picture. It now flashes once before the pic is snapped giving a dark picture.

I was using my M763 model and taking pictures just fine. Then, I went to take a pic and the LCD was dark. I clicked the review button, nothing happened, so I turned it off and it wouldn't turn back on. When I try to turn it on it flashes green for a nano sec, then red a couple of times, then nothing. When I plug the USB cable into the camera and my computer USB port nothing happens, but earlier I was able to upload pics okay. So what's up?
