Similar to another post, I dropped my Canon Rebel XS (strap caught a chair) and it landed on my tile floor. Everything seems to work fine except the auto focus. Because I thought it landed lens first I bought another 18-55mm lens. However when I put the new lens on the auto focus on does not work on this one either. Any ideas whats on what is going on?
The unit uses tiny electromagnets mounted on a circular free turning focus ring, and there could be some damage to that. Also, there are many tiny parts inside the lens assembly that could have been cracked or damaged from the fall.\015\012T ... Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera
Camera worked great since Dec. 2005. When camera was brought back from the beach, since then photos are not in focus. Looking through the viewfinder is not in focus either. I loaned it to my granddaughter. Was assured camera did not get wet. Have blown compressed air in all crevices on the outside to remove possible sand. Camera had stopped with zoom lens out, not retracted. I replaced battery pack. Everything else seems fine with the new battery pack, but the focus.

I have a Mitsubishi SL2U video projector, which has two lenses. The outer lens is the focus lens, and the inner lens is the zoom lens. It appears that the inner lens has dust and debris on it. How do I remove the focus lens so that I can clean the zoom lens?
If the focus lens is meant to be taken off from the front, it can be unscrewed, howevery I believe you will have to take another approach.\015\012 ... Digital Cameras
I was using my Nikon D40 at son's baseball game with the 55-200 mm lens & was too close to the fence when zooming since it tapped the fence. Now it makes a squeaky noise when trying to auto focus. It will not take a pic on auto focus but will focus and if I flip the A / M switch on the lens itself over to M it will take a pic.It will take pics fine with the 18 - 55 mm lens. It's nota problem with the Zoom, but with the autofocus. When it attempts to autofocus, it goes thru the extremes of the le

Zoom lens mis-focusing. The lens "wizzes" in and out trying to focus. The lens will eventually "settle-into" focus; but sometimes this takes a number of seconds to accomplish. Also, the lens tends to "slip-out" of focus just as the button is depressed to take the photograph. Only problem seems to be with the lens focusing.
This usually happens when you are focusing on a spot which lacks details. Try aiming you focusing area to something which has clear edges ... Canon PowerShot S1 IS Digital Camera
I have a Cannon 40D 28-135mm lens. With the lens in auto focus, the lens will act as if it has found the target will focus, beep, ready to shoot. The lens then makes a focusing sound and moves just a little. This is on a stationary target with camera on tripot. Whats wrong?
What you can do is to get another sample, so see if that one focuses better in combination with your 40D.What you can also do is to let Canon calibrate your 40D with both of your lenses.Achieving focus is a task of both the lens ( t ... Canon Digital Cameras

My camera is in great condition and I'd hate to spend the money to get it fixed. It seems like everything else is working except for the lens...which is a big one! It never reads "ERROR" its just that the lens will not focus. It makes a noise when it is turned on like it is trying to focus. Even when I slightly hold the shutter button it makes a strange noise trying to focus but cannot. Any ideas of what I could do?

Focus Problem I recently took the camera apart to fix the zoom. lens would not come out. Fixed it all good now goes in and out smothly. Now the pics are fuzzy out of focus. has auto focus 2' too infinity. Wiped the lenses off while i was in there with a lens cloth from binoculars. Maybe not well enough and it might have a film on it. Would that make the pics fuzzy or out of focus? Or is there something else?
A small amount of dirt on the lens would just produce some flare and redule overall contrast slightly. It wouldn't produce a grossly out of focus image. Either you misaligned something or you messed up the autofocus system somehow.\015\012\015\012Can ... Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital Camera
My D80 was purchased in April 2008 along with the Nikkor 18-200mm VR zoom lens. The camera and lens worked flawlesly until this past week end. The cameral stopped focusing in auto mode with no warning. I did hear a whining noise when I tried a Tamron 11-18mm wide angle lens. The auto focus did not work with that lens either.
Make sure your AF-switch on your camera and your lens are both turned on. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

Zooming FE-280 camera - Worked great for about 2 weeks. While on vacation developed a problem - when you turn the camera on the lens goes in and out like it is trying to focus. Once it is through with the lens action when you try to set up for a picture (any mode) and focus on the subject the camera will not focus and then shuts down. Acts like the battery is dead but camera shows fully charged battery. Any ideas?

When I turn my Nikon Coolpix S220 on, it makes a funny sound and the lens tries to focus. It zooms in, and out, trying to focus but stays blurry. It then says 'lens error' and turns off. I have always kept it in a protective case, and have never dropped it. What has happened?
From what you said, it shouldn't be a lens problem, but even dust, lint, and sand can cause problems. The focusing ring works with an electromagnetic field, and that attracts particles. You can try to spray compressed air into the lens assembly t ... Digital Cameras

My wife has a nikon d70 with a quantary 28-200 zoom lens. F2.8-F5.6. It takes great picutres during the day. At low light and nightime the longer range pictures will not stay in focus. She set the focus and when she releases the shutter the lens automatically moves back and forth. Only happens at night.
The camera is unable to focus properly in low light at long focal lengths. You might have to throw some light on the subject with a flashlight until the camera locks in the focus or resort to focussing manually. ... Nikon D70s Digital Camera
Viewfinder jammed The viewfinder is out of focus and does not move when the zoom control is operated. The main lens mechanism seems to work, the field of view changes on the LCD display and pictures taken are in focus. Perhaps the zoom mechanism makes more noise than it did. Does anyone know how the viewfinder is adjusted and whether repair is likely to be feasible? Thanks

My Olympus FE-320 will not focus. When I turn the camera on, lens extends and retracts a couple of times, camera beeps and turns off. If I press the review button while the lens is extended, I can see old pictures then switch to camera and see a live screen, but out of focus. If I try to zoom, camera beeps and turns off.
