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

Canon Rebel XTI Ef-S Lens stuck

\015 The zoom of my EF-S17-85 IS USM lens is stuck in the 17 mm position. I can't turn the lens to change the focal length. It feels like if a lock as in my tele-lens is on, BUT this lens does not have a lock. Any advice is appreciated. Like to shoot again in Pittsburgh\015

Hello Pittsburgh! I lived there for 3 years! Dreadful city. :-)

Now, your lens must have a problem with the guide rails/pins. If you dropped it or bumped it, you might have broken/damaged those guide rails. Another reason might be sand/grit in the zoom mechanism.

You may try stripping the lens slowly and see if you can identify the problem. Most lenses are easy to disassemble, you start from the rear mount area, take off screws, and parts one by one, and be organized (i.e., take photos for every step and don't mix the screws).

Good luck.

I have a Canon Rebel Xti and today I was shooting pictures with a new lens and I pressed the shutter and it did not release and it is stuck. I tried to turn off the camera but it still shows that it is on. Thanks for the help


If the camera does the same without the lens mounted, it's probably a defective release switch. It'll have to be replaced by a repair shop for around $130. ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have a canon rebel xti. Some of my images are soft...not too soft, but a little. If I upgraded to canon 40 D slr, would my pictures be sharper, like around someones eyes, assuming I keep the lens, aperture settings, and shutter speed, and ISO the same? In other words,is an amateur photog. like myself going to be able to take better pictures with a different camera body...the 40 d vs. the rebel xti? thanks, dr john [email protected]

My Canon Rebel XTi has repeatedly had the Err99 message pop up, and it's to the point that it happens, at minimum, every 4-5 shots I take.
