It does appear to be a power issue and would need to go to repair. One way to check is to check the battery compartment or try another battery.

Canon 17-85 IS zoom ring locked at 17mm.


Sometimes, if that lens has heavy use or if it has been traveled with a lot, several of the internal zoom screws may come loose deep inside the lens and cause the zoom to freeze. It requires a complete disassembly of the lens to reach the screws and re-seal them so it does not happen again.

Unless you're a professional photographer who depends on the equipment for your living, don't worry about it and continue clicking away. If the worst happens and your camera fails, your life will continue....maybe even with a new camera.

Is there a filter on the lens? remove the filter and try that. What mode are you shooting in? Switch to "P" for program and the camera will balance the light meter to a correct exposure. When looking through the camera viewfinder yes things will look darker then the scene because of all the glass and stuff the light is traveling through to get to your eye. Sort of like looking at something then putting a pair of sunglasses on. That part is normal. Also the faster the F stop the brighter the viewfinder will be. So lets say your 18-55 is an F4 lens. A lens that is an F2 will be a stop brighter and a lens that is F1.2 will be even brighter then that. You might not be paying attention to the light meter in the viewfinder which for correct exposure the needle needs to be in the middle between the - and + symbols.

Assuming that you've already tried a good firm hand on the zoom ring then all you can realistically try is to give the lens a few good firm slaps onto a desk to try and free up whatever has gone wrong. Brute force usually sorts them out, but it is "kill or cure". This lens lacks a macro mode, so this is not the usual simple case of adjusting a lens control and then slapping your forehead with embarrassment...

The lens is otherwise uneconomic to repair as it's one of the cheaply built kit lenses and so you can easily obtain another for less than the cost of repairs.

Lens mechanism not travelling fully


Use your vacuum cleaner to pull the dust lodged between the lens casing and the camera body. Do not blow it in.

My Optio won't stay powered on.


This is probably due to a broken sensor tab inside the lens, or a failed sensor. When the lens reaches the end of its travel a small plastic tab will pass between the ends of a C shaped sensor and let the camera know the lens has reached the end of its travel. You are not hearing a safety device, you are hearing the gears actually slipping. Don't let it do that too much or you will turn one problem into two problems quite quickly. If you cant find the broken part it will require professional repair. I would advise against taking the lens assembly apart. They are extremely hard to get back together and you very well may end up with a junk camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
