If it is at all like my C8080, there are 4 screws that hold the lens guard in place, accesible only when the case is opened. This is the fixed tube that the lens extends out of. The knurled coller is a screw on piece that allows a lens tube to be screwed on, that can be tightened by hand. If the lens itself seems kinda wobbly, that is normal and is just showing a little sign of age. It wont affect the picture. The lens rides on helical rails on a rotating inner barrel and these rails and bushings get a little worn over time.

Hi tin_080 , the aperture actuating lever was bent or loose and is ahead of the control mechanism of the diaphragm opening in the camera body.
Check this: point the lens towards you notice that the diaphragm is closed.
To avoid more costly damage you take it to a workshop for servicing.
Best regards

Definitely do NOT open the lens!
This can cause much bigger problems like misalignment of glass etc.

Take this lens to a professional if it's causing that much of an annoyance to you.

Left brake light

open the trunk and pull the fabric away from the inside of the hold the light in place. Make sure you back of the brake light. There are plastic wing nuts that you remove to take the whole lens out of the body. When you have taken all of the wing nuts off, the lens wil become loose. Push on the studs that go through the metal part of the body and follow the wires to the sockets and turn them a quarter turn to release the socket from the lens. Replace the bulbs and put it all back together after you have tested all the lights. Best of luck and be safe..

17-85MM IS - mechanically stuck at 17mm - will not zoom -

Hi all,

I've had the same problem. So I decided to give it a try because I didn't find any solutions on the net. Unfortunately you have to pay pretty much for a Canon lens while the internal quality is pretty cheap, the whole mechanism is of plastic and this is also the problem. And after a while some screws will vibrate loose from the plastic components and canon could have done this better.

Probably within your lens is now one of the three zoom mechanism screws complete removed and you will notice that there is some abnormal movement in the zoom part. Unfortunately these screws are deeply mounted inside the lens and you need a lots of skill and patience to get it fixed.

First you need to completely disassemble the lens, and please make a picture of your lens after every step you make because I had to disassemble my lens 4 times! Because some of the elements was not right in place.

I will try to place a more complete description later today including some pictures.

Regards Gert

Lens is loose from body

One note on this fix. There are four screws that need to be tightened on the lens. With the cover off and the lens pointing straight forward, there are three small screws visible. After tightening them, rotate the lens upward to expose the fourth screww. After that one is tightened, you can then replace the cover and six cover screws.
