The bottom third of the picture is black


check to see that mirror goes all the way up

check to make sure secondary mirror attached to bottom of main mirror goes all the way up when mirror goes up

check to make sure a shutter blade is out of place or broken

for all of these set the camera on manual and bulb, and set it to fire without a card, and then take off the lens and look in the mirror box when firing

I have just purchased a 500mm mirror lens but when attached to the camera I get the message 'no lens attached shutter is locked' any suggestions please


The lens lacks the electronic circuitry to interface with the camera. You'll need to use the camera in M(anual) exposure mode.

I see two small black spots on the viewer and then on the image when I upload to computer. Not on the exterior surface of the lens as I tried cleaning with damp q tip with no results. Any suggestions?


It sounds like you have some foreign objects on the inside portion of the lens or the actual mirror...since you have already tried cleaning the exterior of the lens, I suggest taking it to a qualified camera repair shop....or, if it is still under warranty, take to the store where it was purchased...

Wont take a picture displays error 99


Other than sending the camera to the shop to get replacement, you can do this method to temporarily solve the problem. Set the camera to P mode, go for Sensor Cleaning Mode, Manual Cleaning, and clean now... You will then hear the mirror lock and followed by ERR99! All you have to do now is to shut off the camera, take off the battery and waith few seconds. Reinstal the battery and immediately you'll hear the mirror resetting itself. The camera should be working just fine for now until you shut it off next. I suspect, this error are linked to the mirror or sensor lock up thingy....

I have a Canon Rebel EOS digital. When I take a picture, the bottom two thirds of the picture is black.


Take the lens off and carefully lift the mirror - if the sub-mirror underneath the main mirror doesn't follow the main mirror up, the stop-pin has broken off and has to be repaired by a camera shop. A common problem.

Lens cover mechanism is broken


It will need replacement if under warranty
A repair will be almost as expensive as buying a new camera

This suggests the mirror is stuck up in the take position. Remove the Lens and look at what is behind it In the rest mode you should see a mirror. If it is stuck up you would see the sensor window Which do you see. with the lens off - can the camera be switched on? This might just drop the mirror The mirror is surface silvered - do not touch it. If it still up then it is a repair shop/warranty replacement job.
