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

There is a 20 second delay when I take pictures. Must have hit a button but can't find it in the manual. How do I fix it to take pictures immediately?


Answers :

Couple of things to try - put it on full auto (green square on the dial) first. If it is still taking 20 seconds then there is something wrong unless you have set the self timer - is the camera beeping before it takes the shot? If this is the case, simply press the button under the AV button to switch between single shot, multi shot and timer.

PICTURE TAKING Wonder if anyone can help me? Whenever I try to take a picture on my C-350 Zoom there is a long delay, of about 3 seconds, between me pressing the button and the flash operating to take the picture. This means I can never take any action shots and am even struggling to take family snapshots. I've checked this against other cameras and they only seem to take 1 to 1.5 seconds. I've looked through the operating manual and can't seem to find any solution. Any help would be greatly

I just received a Cannon Rebel for xmas and it was taking pictures just fine then it wouldn't autofocus and take a clear picture. I do not know if I accidentally hit a button when holding the camera but I cannot get it to take a clear pic. It also flashes a busy signal across the top of the viewing screen when it is flashing. I tried to find the fix in the guide, but nothing helped. Thanks!

Batteries are fully charged. I can turn my camera on and look through my pictures, go through all the menus, etc., but as soon as I hit the button to take a picture, the camera just shuts off. I can immediately turn the camera back on, but it makes a strange clicking sound before it turns on. My lens is stuck out because even if I turn the camera on and turn it right back off manually, the lens does not retract.

I was taking pictures into bright sunlight switching between manual and automatic settings, and manual and automatic focus. First, the picutre would take, but the shutter would not open (viewfinder would remain closed) switching from manual to automatic focus fixed this issue. However now it seems that the aperture is stuck, and not enough light gets through to the viewfinder. How can I fix this?

My pictures have a yellow cast to them and they are not very sharp. When I take pictures outside, my photos are invariably washed out. I find myself manually adjusting light balance before I print (either darkening if I take picture outside or lightening if I take the picture inside). I almost always use Auto mode. I have found nothing that corrects the nasty yellow cast.
