Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

1 Answer

The focus lens was hit by a basketball and it won't take pics.

Since the focus lens was hit by the basketball my canon 450D won't take picures anymore. When I look at the eyepiece it wont recognize anymore, unlike its focus lens wasnt hit by any objects. The shutter wont capture picture anymore.

Have you tried a different lens on the camera almost any lens with the same mm size will work. If it still does not take pictures with another lens. You should take it in for service.

Auto Focus won't work


Another cause of auto focus failure is the circuit connecting the moving parts inside the lens. These "Flexi circuits" move with the lens components and wear out after a while. They are cheap enough to find on ebay and easy to replace.

My shutter won't fire using 18-55 lens, either on Manual, P or Auto mode. It is set to AF. But when lens is set to MF, shutter fires. I tried switching to another lens and shutter is perfectly fine.


I could be that your lens isn't focusing. If the Auto focus can't find something to focus on the shutter won't fire. If you are shooting in low light sometimes it has trouble try shooting something that is well lit. also your auto focus point may be somewhere other than the center. there is a button on the top of your camera that looks like this [ ][ ] [ ] [ ]
More or less that will switch where your focus point is. If you look in the view finder and see a red dot when you push on the shutter button that is your focus point. push the above button until the red dot is in the centre. that may fix your problem.

My 18-55mm lens on my canon 450D sometimes does not function or does not auto focus. I have to move the focus with my fingers before it i will function again.


Try cleaning the contacts on the camera body and lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.
