Good Morning I went hiking in broad daylight this past weekend and the autofocus would not work. I have a Canon 40D with a TAmron 18-270. I used av, tv, p, m and auto and I could not autofocus the camera. All I could do is to switch to manual focus to get it to work. When the lens was set to AF all you could is hear is it racking back and forth tying to focus. VERY FRUSTRATING.. Any ideas of what it may be or a setting I might have set accidentally. Any help is appreciated. Bob


Did you set a strange auto-focus point? ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

Auto focus no longer works. Every time I turn the camera on, I get the ''Please turn camera off and then on again message''. When I do that, it can focus in the default lens position, but as soon as I move the lens, it is not able to focus. Battery is fully charged. All settings were reset to default. Formatted SD, and upgraded to V1.2 software. Still no help.

The problem is\015\0121- some dirt somehow got on the outside of the lense. After it was retracted fully in, it prevents the camera from opening again. When you turn it on, if it opens a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard and let go ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 Digital Camera

I can only turn on my Cybershot DSC-N2 while the camera is in playback mode. I can look at the pictures and videos and change settings with no problem.. but when I try to switch to camera or video record mode the camera turns off by itself. Sometimes the lens will come out and then the camera powers down with the lens stuck out. Other times it just shuts off before the lens even has a chance to come out. The camera has never been dropped or damaged.

Hello, I own a Fugi Finepix F100 camera. Last week my dog was pulling on his leash trying to get to a gaggle of ducks and caused me to drop my camera down into snow. I tried to dry it off and in doing so might have damaged the retractable lens cover. Now it is not reliable in opening all the way, I usually need to help slide it back so that the lens is fully exposed. I really don't want to have an expensive repair unless necessary...what do you advise? Thank you! Linda

Help! My Nikon lens (18-55mm on a D60) has stopped autofocusing even though it was previously problem-free! The lens is set to autofocus but it is still not working.

My D80 suddenly stopped taking photos while I was in Auto mode. I noticed the flash stopped releasing. I've changed lenses, reset the camera's green buttons, switched out the card, reset the clock. It will occasionally take a photo, not necessarily in focus,and the flash will on occasion pop, but I can't figure out what the correct triggers are. Can anyone help? Lens is 18-135mm. Set Lens in in "A" and camera is in "AF"mode. Thanks much.


Hi, Also, try a factory reset found on page 129 of the manual. On the left side of the camera is the terminal cover, inside below the USB connector is the reset switch. If that does not work call Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

Error I was erasing an image on my cf card in camera last week and being it was a tiff I set the camera down as the hourglass spun in the processing mode. The camera then shut off after less than a minute and the only thing that came up was a solid error code on the lcd. No power. Autofocus works, and the nightlight feature works and that's it.

I have a Finepix S7000. This camera has been great for the entire time I have had it. Suddenly a day ago, I turn it on and it pretends to "Boot" up....the display comes on with the "Finepix" graphic...the lens "Moves" into position....the "Green" power light on the right grip side come on, (and stays on)....then, Nothing. When I try to turn it off and restart...nothing. The camera will not even turn "off" unless I open the battery hatch, (I put a fresh set in). Please help...I love this camera.

Will a 1500 mAh battery work in a Kodak DX 7590? The original battery was a 1700 mAh. Everything else is the same as the original battery. I thought the original battery was going dead and wouldn't re-charge, so I bought a new battery. The camera acts like it wants to turn on, but doesn't. The power comes on briefly, but camera lens doesn't open. The ring around the settings dial flashes green., then turns to red, and shuts off. Please help!!!! I love this camera!!!


The answer is YES, the Kodak DX 7590 can be supported by a Li-Ion 1700 mAh battery. The only difference is that the 1700 last longer. Just make sure the one you just purchased is fully charged. Otherwise, exchange that battery from the store you b ... Kodak EasyShare DX7590 Digital Camera

Black pictures Exactly the same problem here but zooming the lens in and out hasn't helped, sadly. Neither has restoring factory settings.

I have a Caonon 40D. I thought I was having a lens problem at first. However after using 2 other lenses I have found out it is my Camera. No matter how clear and crisp the image is in the view finder. After the photo is taken and loaded into PS4. The image is blurry and unsharp. I have reset all camera settings to factory with Canon. And I am still getting the same results. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Only reason the lens will not auto focus when you depress the shutter half way is due to either lens AF switch is set to Manual OR camera body's focus system is on M. There is 3 way toggle switch below the synch port around the lens mount. It shoul ... Nikon D300 Body Only Digital Camera
