My Canon EOS Rebel XS digital camera has suddenly stopped taking pictures. It will not focus even though it is on the auto focus setting. The first set of numbers are flashing and there is a flashing dot behind the ISO 800. It was working fine when I used it one time and then the next time it wouldn't. I can view pictures, but cannot take them on any setting except A-DEP and it's not focused even then. Please Help!

I downloaded pictures from my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi to my PC using the EOS utility, then burned the folder to a DVD. The computer I used has Windows 7. I then tried to view the pictures on my desktop which has Windows XP. Clicking on a picture icon tells me that the picture is too big to view. All the pictures are 4272 x 2848 pixels.

I have a Canon Digital Rebel EOS and when I take pictures everything works except I can't see any pictures on my view screen. When I go back to re-view them they are just black and when I view my card on my computer, the pictures are just black. When I take pictures the count on the card doesn't even go down. I am lost. I have tried many solutions that I have read but maybe I am missing something. I would be grateful for any advise.

I have a Canon Digital EOS Rebel XT and the built-in flash no longer pops up when needed. This started happening after using a Canon speedlite, but then removing it. I've tried resetting everything, and tried all modes expecting that the ones listed in the manual as using a flash would work, but they dont, it never pops up. I lifted up the flash with my fingernail manually, and then tried taking a picture where a flash was most definitely needed, but it still had a long delay, no flash, and

Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?


Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera
