It's possible that the gold contacts between the camera and lens are dirty and not making an electrical contact. The DIY fix is to take a pencil eraser and gently polish these contact surfaces both the camera and lens contacts. They look clean but over time accumulate a hazy oxide that prevents proper communication between the camera and body. Also the blades will not move if you have the lens off (no power) the camera as it will be set to the last known aperture. The lens needs to be on the camera to work and operate the aperture.

Unfortunately the T2i does not have Wi-Fi built into the camera, so you'll need to connect the camera to your computer or remove the SD card from the camera and insert it into your computer's SD slot/reader (if equipped in your computer). From there, you can manipulate the photos on your computer and e-mail them as you like. Tip: If the photos are too large (exceed the maximum MB limit) to email, you'll need to shrink/compress them. This can be done a variety of ways depending on your operating system.

If you are shooting video then you must have the Canon Digital Rebel T2i as the Rebel T2 is a film camera. Anyway I've checked through some data and your camera is capable of 29 minutes 59 seconds of video before shutting down due to heat. I would expect that your memory card is not a Class 6 or faster if it is then you may have forgotten to format the memory card to the camera it is being used in.

A couple of things First if batteries were left in the camera the contact surface down inside the camera may be corroded and need cleaning check this with a flashlight. If the battery contact is dark black then it might require some aggressive cleaning. What I use is a piece of light sandpaper formed over a pencil and taped to it set it down inside and spin it lightly to remove as much of the black stuff as possible a Qtip and alcohol will clean out the dust and other partials. Clean off the battery door and clean off the batteries (because you had them in the camera) install the batteries again. If it comes on and works great if it come on but doesn't work correctly then you need to work the camera in.

Working the camera in by turning everything to manual mode including the lens set the ISO speed at 100 aperture 1 stop down from wide open. Set your shutter speed at 1/125 and release the shutter do this three time, set at 1/250 and do it again three times then set to 1/500 and do it three times and again until you reach the cameras fastest shutter speed then back down again. Listen to the sound of the shutter you should hear it increase and decrease in speed. In fact the more you use it the better it will sound.

Sounds like your memory card might be dodgy - have you got another one to do a test on? What size is your memory card? 16GB are known to have problems.

That's odd that the pictures would be coming out under exposed unless the previous owner has gone into the camera functions and switched the ISO from auto to manual. Another reason is that the exposure compensation has been activated and set for - exposure

Under "normal" use the camera will read the DX code on the film canisters and adjust the ISO automatically. However the previous owner may have shut this off in preference to setting the ISO manually. Even though you have ISO 400 in the camera the ISO on in the camera setting may be ISO 1600.

Checking for the Auto ISO and exposure compensation is fairly easy as you can see the film canister through the film window or you know you have loaded 400 speed film. on the LCD panel at the back of the camera is an ISO icon and exposure compensation.

Make sure the ISO for the camera is the same as what you have loaded and if the exposure compensation is to the right of 0 then the resulting picture will be dark. Move this back to the Zero.

I wasn't able to find an exact manual (if you don't have one) for your camera but have found a camera with similar. Here is a ling for that manual.


Hope this was a help

This may be a problem with the autofocus itself, try the following:

  • If you have a different lens, see if the autofocus works with the other lens. If it does, there may be something wrong with your lens.
  • Clean the contacts (the little metal things between the lens and the camera) with a slightly moist, lint-free cloth
  • Try replacing the battery in the camera
If none of this helps, you may have to take your camera to a qualified repair person to get them to have a look at it.

Good luck!

The Canon Rebel T2i was announced on Feb 08, 2010 and Canon just started shipping the DSLR. Your salesperson was thus correct.
The DSLR is also known as EOS 550D. It differs from the previously model by:
  • Higher resolution 18MP CMOS with gapless micro lenses
  • ISO 6400 no longer in 'expanded' range (12,800 max remains the same)
  • Redesigned buttons and new movie/live view button
  • Customizable auto ISO ranges
  • Improved 63 zone metering (iFCL)
  • 3:2 format screen with more pixels
  • Improved movie functionality
  • Slightly higher burst shooting rate (though buffer holds fewer shots)
  • HDMI control (CEC)
  • SDHX Compatible

    Was everything set automatic?
    Was it a cloudy day?
    Did you take pictures in the sun of an object in shadow?
    Are your indoor pictures normal?
    If you are sure everything was OK, no shadows, no bright objects in the picture, ISO was not set 400, flash was not forced on, etc., call Canon. There are adjustments that calibrate the camera for outdoors. It may need to be recalibrated.

    Yes, it can be repaired. probably the film door will need to be replaced. Any repair shop can do it for you.

    You must be referring to the mirror. In the second part, you must be referring to the focusing screen. If you have not dropped it, there is no likelihood of this getting damaged. You could probably be looking at the split image screen. There is no quick solution for the problem. Please take the camera to the nearest service center.

    What type of batteries did you buy?

    For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

    If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

    Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

    Canon EOS Rebel... | Answered on Feb 17, 2009

    Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure.

    There is a small round pushbutton on the top of the camera marked with a clock icon. Pressing this button engages self-timer mode. When the camera is in this mode pressing the shutter release starts a 10 second countdown. The camera will beep during the countdown if the beeper is enabled and the top-deck LCD displays the number of seconds left. Two seconds before the shot the camera will beep faster and the red-eye reduction lamp on the front of the camera will flash to warn you that the photo is about to be taken. You can cancel the timer at any point by switching the camera to another mode (or turning it off) before the picture is shot.
