Question about Canon EOS-10D Digital Camera

Open Question

Canon 10D hardly auto focus

Hi Ginko!

I have searched the net, and some has had the same problem, but I don't want to send it to service without asking the experts first.

This camera is not new anymore, I know that. It has been to service once before during the 1 year I have had it. Also I've tried to reset settings and remove both batteries in the camera. Tested lenses with another camera and it works fine. My 10D will only AF on the sealing if it is lightened.

Do you have any ideas?

Thanks,
Arve

SOURCE: Canon A75 won't power on

The only advice I can give is to check for a fusible link close to where the battery cables connect to the PCB. Look for a component with an F prefix eg f1001 or f001. I never desolder the fuse if it's open circuit, I just break a glass type fuse and solder the wire across the surface mount component. Just make sure the fuse wire is the same value as the original.

SOURCE: My 300D wont lock on a point in its AF setting

If you are unable to focus in broad daylight and it just hunts through the whole focus range without locking, then it sounds like a problem with sub-mirror pin (also called the second mirror pin). My 300D just had this problem and I had to send to service to get fixed. I sent to http://www.keh.com/ as they were at least $50 cheaper than going straight to Canon. Just got it backed and it works like a charm again.

Most likey your problem is the cf card reader when ever the camera was made they could have not heated up the board all the way causing a cold solderjoint after time this joint becomes week and gets disconnected on the back side no visual damage is seen causing you the error you are getting. best thing to do is take it to a repair shop and have them fix it or the manufacture should repair it for free because there is no fisical damage.

Have you actually cleaned the contacts or are you just looking at them and they "look" clean? Clean them with a cotton swab lightly dampened in rubbing alcohol.

To purchase a battery door for your D10, go to eBay and search for "10D battery door." You will see several for sale and they run around $7.00.

.HAVEN'T USED 10D FOR A LONG LONG TIME AND


Here are a few things to try:


1. Remove the main battery and the small backup battery (CR2025) from the battery compartment. Charge your main battery and put both batteries back in once your main battery has been charged. Sitting without batteries will give the camera a chance to reset itself.

2. You may have a bad CF card. Try starting your camera without a CF card or use another.

3. Try reloading the firmware (camera's operating system) using this link Canon. http://web.canon.jp/imaging/EOS10D/10D_firmware-e.html
Be careful to follow instructions exactly as restarting the camera in the middle of a firmware update will brick it and you will need to send it back to Canon for repair.

Hope that helps,

Shot numbering system not working


Menu>File Numbering (I think it's called ), set it to auto reset, should do the trick. Otherwise, format your card and set it to auto reset.

Auto focus not working


Your Sigma 28-300mm doesn't have a HSM-motor as far as i know. When you switch it from MF to AF, you also have to disengage the manual focusing ring by pulling it towards the camera, or pushing it away from the camera. Using the AF without unlocking the manual focusing ring may damage the AF motor. 
I hope this helps,

It lso operates on my EOS 350D but does not flash off quite bright enough on this camera in very low light.The unit was previously paired with a canon EOS 5 film.

Autofocus has ceased to function on my Canon EOS 10D


Make sure the camera is on auto focus-mode as compared to a manual mode. Also make sure that auto-focus ILLUMINATOR is switched on, and also not covered by your fingers when in use.

My 10d won't focus


At 700 images/week for 52 weeks, you're just about at the point where the shutter could fail pretty soon. I don't think that would affect AF though, and AF doesn't "wear out" with use (other than experiencing the random failures that all electronics do).

Auto-focus problem


I shoot with a 10D and at first I thought I might have a problem. Now I think I just wasn't using it correctly. I read a lot of posts on dpreview about how to use the autofocus correctly and that has helped me a lot.
