Canon digital rebel xti - lens misaligned after it was dropped

Hiya. the lens of my gf's canon is slightly tilted now. after being dropped, the part that you grab and twist is now slightly off angle. it seems like nothing else about it is broken besides the track that it is on. i have small mechanical screwdrivers, and there are 4 screws i could remove from the lens to fiddle with the insides of it; but i'm not sure if it's designed to be opened by an amateur (like, if they booby trap it with things that they can only assemble in their repair department). anyone with experience, please let me know what you know! thank you very much!

    Is the lens mount damaged or the camera mount?



    You also have not specified which lens.



    If it is a cheaper (i.e. kit) lens, you could try to have a look but I personally wouldn't recommend it. The repair option is also uneconomical, so if it is working OK, live with it (I imagine there must be some picture distortion going on if the lens tilt is noticeable though), if not working , buy a replacement lens.



    With a replacement you could then risk having a look at repairing the original, or just selling it as is, I'm sure other people would be willing to buy the lens.

I just stripped the body of my rebel xt apart and put it back together. be forewarned, there are six different size and thread pitch screws in the body, so take notes and keep them separate.

The flash pops up but doesnt work. than gives me a busy signal than gives me the 99 warning. it was dropped a short distance from my hands. just want to know what i can do myself. if anything


This error is usually assocociated with a dirty lens mount.. rub both lens mount terminals and camera terminals with a pencil eraser making sure nothing gets inside the works. and reassemble.

Other reports indicate it can also be the battery terminals.. do the same thing.

regarding the flash.. if the lens mounts are dirty ( or misaligned requiring repair) the flash will not flash.

I dropped my Canon EOS Rebel Xti in the canal while kayaking.


Water in the camera body could take up to a week to dry. If you tried turning it on while it was wet inside, you may have shorted out some circuits.

Canon Rebel Xti Wont autofocus


I dropped my camera and thought the autofocus broke. It turn out that it swithed from autofocus to manual focus. There's a switch on the lens. Check if that's your problem too.

Canon Rebel XTI isnt getting powered on after few drops of water fell on the lens and the screen.


Such symptom indicate a malfunction on the DC/DC voltage converter circuitry or the main board, caused for moisture as result of the water drops.

In order to perform a correct diagnostics and repair of it, it is necessary to open such camera and perform it by a qualified camera repair technician.

If it's under warranty, I do recommend you to send it back to make valid the warranty.

If not, then you have the options of pay for its repair, or do it yourself if you are willing to open it and perform some basic diagnostics of the failure. You will need tools to do it, which includes the usage of a soldering iron.

The repair cost may be so huge that is cheaper to buy another camera, since after open it, it may be necessary to replace multiple expensive parts.

Best regards,

Canon rebel xti focus issues


I think it might be a lens issue.
make sure you change the macro option. the macro must be activated if you are taking a picture of something which is close to the camera. if it's not activated, the picture will not be focused.
The same will happen if the item is far and the macro is ON.

Canon EFS Lens question- please help!!


Make sure that the switch on the lens is set to AF. If that doesn't work, you may have a faulty lens. The EFS 18-55 is not a high quality lens.

Tamron lens for Xti?


if it is an auto focus lens that works on one eos camera, it should work on almost all of them. the only known exception is that some high end extenders will not fit the eos1dmarkII as it protrudes into the opening too far.
but a good rule is that if it fits without any obstruction issues, it should work. try cleaning contacts on the lens and camera body. if that doesn't fix it, talk to Tamron. you can use it manually, but will not be as easy and you would get less predictable results.

my suggestion is to always go with lens from camera maker.

sounds like there is an issue with the tamron lens. not the camera.
good luck
