Did you install the program to view the images while the card is in the camera? Or you could buy a cf reader.

Usually this error comes up when the golden contacts between the camera body and the lens are dirty or defective. You can try cleaning it with appropriate contacts solution and a microfiber cloth or simply by scrubbing them with an eraser (be careful though not to let fall any gunk or gum dust into the camera). Never touch those contacts directly with your fingers.

Another culprit may be a defective CF card, try a different one and see if something changes.

If this doesn't solve the issue and your camera is still under warranty, i suggest you to have is serviced from canon. When out of warranty solving this issue is going to cost you several hundred dollars.
Let me know if this helped, best luck

If not everone is in focus, try switching to M or Av mode, and turningthe f number up, which will allow for a greater range of focus.

Maximum for counter is 999. Counter is showing 999 because you have space available for more than 999 shots. If you've got a very large memory card it may tke quite some time to get below 999.

Sounds like it could be vignetting from either a lens hood or an accessory. Are you seeing this in all photos or flash only? If flash, sometimes a wide shot with a lens hood on will block the flash output and cause the described shadow line.

First of all try cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser. Then make sure you are not too close to the object . The lens has a minimum focus distance and won't be able to focus inside that level therefore not releasing the shutter.

A high key photograph typically has a light-coloured subject exposed to just retain details in the highlights, with very little shadow detail.
Impossible to give technical details, as it depends on the subject and the ambient lighting - best advice I can give is to try various settings until you get a result that suits you, then check the exposure details in the EXIF file.

This is an indication that the LCD is not functioning. You haven't indicated the make and model of your camera but if it has a view finder, try taking some picture and view them in a computer. No view-finder? Just point and shoot some subjects and view then from a computer.
Are the pictures OK? If they are than you might want to maintain that style while looking for replacement parts of service tech.

This is an IR transmitter and as long as your EX 580 II works with IR you'll be OK

Sounds like lcd screen has dropped pixels and replacing screen is a chore unless you are a camera repair person. Rich

What size is the card you're using and are you shooting RAW or the largest JPG files the camera will allow, or a combination of RAW+JPG?

When you have another lens, that still works on the same camera, you can assume it is something with the 18-55. Please check carefully if all contacts are clean and shiny. Also check if not one has a (even tiny) bent to dent.
You can clean contacts with a dry cloth, or cotton swab. Never use anything sharp in or lost by a camera.
If you can't fine anything obvious wrong with the contacts, I think you should visit a Canon certified service centre.

Came just in my mind. If the camera does not give any error, and you still can shoot (blurred) pictures, check if the AF switch is not on manual.

Although the manual does not show how to connect to a computer, the system map shows how to use a mini USB cable to connect the camera to a PC. But before the camera will communicate with any PC or Laptop, it needs software.

From the Canon USA website you still can download the Zoombrowser EX software for free. It used to be the EOS Digital solution disk and the ArcSoft PhotoStudio Disk.
Before connecting the camera, install the software. Then when software (and driver) are installed, when connecting the camera, the software will start up and ask what to do. Like import the pictures to the computer.
