I recently went on a trip to Hawaii, wanting the best pictures possible, I cleaned my Rebel XT and when I got to Hawaii it would focus in and out but would not lock in focus so as to shot the picture.

Fokusing .. I have repaired my stucked lenses but along the way, made another problem. I've broken a little flat 6-wire cable that goes into the lenses. Managed to repaire that also, but now I haven't managed to have a bright focused picture in zero fokus position. Is it called bad back fokus? So , i have been told.

Wont Focus I dropped the camera from my tall dresser about 5 feet and now it wont focus. It makes a clicking noise when I try to zoom in. Also when I zoom in it gets dark around the coners of the screen. Can we fix this or do we need to take it in and get it repaired.


If its making a noise when you try to zoom in and out I would suspect physical damage. The more you mess with it the greater the chances of damaging it beyond economic repair. I would take it to the local authorized canon repair shop. ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera

D60: I just got back from Certified Repair group where they said the camera is "okay". The Problem: It's like the ISO has shifted, and the readings on P, S, A, even M all result in a long exposure/wide open aperture reading. Frequently the reading is such that the shutter will not release, due to no focus or wrong light amount. Frequently the focus "peep" does not go off, and so the shutter will not release. Two weeks ago it was fine, don't think I changed anything, but it's like a setting is

Canon Sx120 IS camera will not zoom closeup from a tripod at 19" set at macro!!! Instructions say the camera cannot focus in the range of the yellow bar, well how do you get away from the yellow bar?

I have two olympus 1010 camera's. Both have been dropped. The lens is patially open and the cover not fully closed.
