Canon 3000N Auto focus fault

Hi. My neighbours Auto-focus just packed up on his camera. Fine one moment, just clicks now and won't take a pic unless in Manual. Changed the main batteries OK--Is there internal batteries for focus?? Tried another lens too but no good--anyone had this?

No extra batteries.

Usually this is a lens fault as the focusing gear is all in the lens. Clicking sounds as if a rear pinion has cracked. It's not uncomon in the 'prosumer' level lenses where plastic gears are used a lot.

It's just possible the fault is which the auto-manual switch. This usually has a mechanical clutch coupled to it which physically disconnects the gearbox from the focusing ring, as well as operating a switch to tell the camera to turn off the AF system.

Pictures didnt develop


Hi Steph Johnson,
Numerous things could be the issue. 1, dirty lens, clean the front and back element, 2. The camera focus is not working properly not focusing on the correct spot. So, are you manual focusing or auto focusing? If it is auto then there could be an issue with that. If your are manual focusing are you sure your diopter setting is correct for your eyes, if not then it may appear correct in the viewfinder, yet be off focus.

Do you have a way to check the lens on a DSLR? If so you can try that lens on the DSLR seeing if there is an error with the lens or if it is your film camera.

I'm trying to find out if the Canon Eos 3000N 35mm SLR camera has manual Aperture, ISO and Shutter speed control's? Can you help?


Although the 3000N relies on batteries for all functions and has various auto exposure and DX film coding modes, you can override and manually select all the exposure functions you have mentioned.

My pics on my Canon rebel eos looked clear on my camera but when downloaded to the computer they are bluury. Lanscape photos are fine but wildlife is blurred.


First of all this is a digital camera, not a 35mm film camera, but it is the same fix... You need to use a faster shutter speed for your wildlife pictures. Or use a tripod, or both. The small screen on the camera is not big enough to tell if a photo is really sharp. Also check the way you have your autofocus set up, or focus manually to test a few closer shots. It may be that the auto focus is set to focus on a part of the picture which is not the bit you are interested in. There should be some indicators in the viewfinder to tell you where in the frame the camera is picking out to auto focus onto. Blurry can only be either out of focus or shake. (It could be both of course!)

My camera turns on but it won't focus on automatic and when I press the button to take a picture it won't take one on manuel or automatic.


There may be a few things preventing the camera from taking a picture. I don't know the lens you are using but by chance does it have an auto/manual switch that has been switched to manual? Also make sure the lens is locked in position. The camera won't take a picture unless it has focus in the auto focus mode, this is normal. What are you trying to focus on? The camera auto focus system will search and fail to auto focus on surfaces that have little or nor contrast. For example glass, chrome, a blank wall, water, blue sky. Other conditions that auto focus fails is being to close to your subject, heavy fog, a dim lit subject, available light and night photography. Once the little green confirmation light comes on the camera has focus and will operate as it should.

My canon has been woking well for almost 2 years until one day it stopped taking pictures when its set at auto focus. but i can take pictures when its on manual. please help me figure out what's wrong. The...


First, make absolutely sure that the electronic contact pins on the camera body and the lens are clean, grease free, and undamaged. Next, double check that you haven't simply left the focus selection switch set to manual focus.

If the fault is still present then you need to establish whether the fault lies with the camera body or with the lens. Does the fault occur with all lenses or just with one? If you only own one lens then you'll have to borrow another one to find out; if you visit a camera shop in order to do so then just pretend you're thinking of buying a lens and would like to try it on your camera (obviously you''ll need to have your camera with you). Don't tell them why you really want to try it out!

If it's with all lenses then you have a camera body fault. There is no way for you to repair a faulty AF sensor so will either have to live with it or send the camera for repair.

If the fault is with just one lens then the lens needs to be repaired or replaced. If the lens is a basic kit lens as supplied with the camera then it's usually better to consider either buying an upgraded lens or looking for a good used example of what you have (plenty of folks sell the original after an upgrade). Kit lenses are manufactured as cheaply as possible so repairs are usually not cost-effective unless the lens is covered by a warranty. As with the camera body, there is nothing you can do yourself to fix the lens.

If you need the camera or lens repaired and there is no warranty cover, then in many countries worldwide authorised Canon Service Centres offer fixed price repairs, but these prices only apply if there is no evidence of liquid damage nor of any unauthorised repair attempts and there are some other exceptions. Visit the Canon website in your country to find out more.

Good luck, and I hope that you soon have functional AF again. Please take a moment to rate my reply.

Brand new Canon EOS Rebel XS. Suddenly, image in the view finder is blurry. Auto focus seems to be working, and pictures are coming out fine. But sometimes, the autofocus focuses on the wrong thing, and so...


Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.
