\015\012We have a D40X and had a similar problem! \015\012
\015\012What I did was pretty much reset everything! Take the batteries out, reset to factory settings and reinsert media card. I'm sure the other users did not do permanent damage and it may just be attempting to process corrupt data.\015\012
\015\012Hope you are taking pix again SOON!

My Canon EOS rebel suddenly won't take pictures in dim light. The flash pops up and blinks and blinks trying to register the image but won't ever autofocus and take the picture. The light has to be very bright for it to take a picture. I have gone through all of the settings and everything seems to be correct. Any thoughts?


To autofocus the sensor needs a fair amount of contrast (light and dark eges) to operate. If you're trying to take a photo in a dim room of a dark colored subject for instance the focus won't lock and the camera won't take the picture. Try switching ...
