Question about Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Internal Temperature too high to shoot.

Sometimes when I use my 40D I can shoot successfully.  Other times, when I shoot it comes up with a message saying 
'Camera Internal temperature is becoming too high, can't shoot'.
I thought this may be due to a faulty lens I had on it - but yesterday I purchased a cannon lens and it didn't seem to make a difference.
I currently live in Australia and bought the camera on a holiday to Denmark - so I was wondering if anybody had a solution so that I don't have to send it all the way back?
Thankyou.

This is obviously a problem with the internal parts of the camera. There are too many things it could be to give a definitive answer, and it would be too complicated for an amateur. If you take it into a local camera shop they should be able to run diagnostics on it and replace the problem.
Best of luck to you.

Canon 40d camera will only shoot in manual mode


Using your fingernail, push in the lens contact pins in the bottom of the mirror box several times. Sometimes they get tarnished and make poor contact with the flexible circuit under them. Doing this scrapes off the tarnish.

Screws come loose from the bottom circuit board and short it out. It contains the flash circuit so a short can throw 300 plus volts into a 6 volt circuit, damaging components. The lens contacts flex attaches to this circuit board. This is a common problem.

Impact can cause flexible circuits to either come loose from their connectors or have one side pull out so some of the lands on the flex don't make contact. Did you drop the camera?

Images aren't very sharp


that is a good lense if its the one for the camera heres the thing clarity in a picture come from the exposure , the time the light is hitting the film or in digital the sensor . try cutting down the time speed up the exposure or change the f stop.
if it happens in all the modes it is a focus problem try shooting some test shots in controled light say 5 feet from a person inside and outside and see what happenes and consult the lab tech they can usualy show you on your camera how to set it up..
good luck

Internal Flash not working-Canon Eos 40D


I've had this happen to me too and I've been researching about it. Aparantly it happens because the camera still think the external flash is attached. If you go into the menu and under flash control, try ot enter the settings for built in flash. If this is the problem it will tell you here that the external flash is still attached. From what I have read to far, I'm not sure how to fix it. I would reccomend taking it in somehwere. I dont htink its a hard problem to fix.

It appears you have a defective camera body, warranty should cover it. Go to canonusa.com and contact their service dept.

Hope this helps out. Happy Thanksgiving!

Colour representation on Eos 40d


Have you checked your white balance? Having an improper white balance is one of the most common color problems with digital cameras. 
If true color is what you're after, then you need to tell the camera what true white is, too. Try either shooting a grey card, or using an expodisc. For each lighting situation, you properly expose a shot of the grey card, or a blank frame using the expodisc, and then you set your camera to use that image as the white balance image. Now, your camera will see what you see a whole lot better. Keep in mind that the auto white balance is just a best approximation of what the camera thinks it sees. However, in many situations, there is not only one light source. There are reflected light sources, diffused light sources, and direct light sources all over the place — all of them different color temperatures and intensities. The grey card and expo disc help take these all into account. And while it may seem like a lot of trouble to set the white balance all the time, I think it will be well worth it when you (and everyone) else is amazed at the true colors you are capturing.
Happy shooting!

Not shooting


Are you using a genuine Canon grip? I've experienced contact problems with generics. That's not to say that you couldn't have the same contact problems with a Canon grip.
