Lens no longer working due to fall

My lens to my Canon Rebel camera is no longer working. My son manged to pull the entire digital camera down causing it to fall off the table. It does not focus and when looking at it, it is not even when zooming in-or-out. Is this fixable ot am I doomed to replace the entire lens? Thanks.

Same thing happened to my powershot A590. Not sure if this will help but i used tape and taped the lens up and left it for an hour. I took it off and it stayed open.

How do I fix error 99 on my Canon EOS Rebel XS


sir just read this
i think the lens contacts were dirty and to get a pencil with an eraser on the end, just a regular old pencil with a red rubber eraser. Detach the lens from the camera, hold it so that the lens' gold contacts are pointing down and lightly erase their exposed surface, cleaning them of any hand oil that might have gotten on them. Do the same thing with the gold contacts inside the camera body. This is a bit harder but it's doable: just hold camera so lens opening points down so no gunk falls in. Erase lightly. I used a lens cloth and dabbed at the contacts rather than blow them so as not to blow the erasings inside the camera.
I did this to each of my three lenses just to be sure. Lo and behold, it worked. I've shot numerous pictures with each lens and have not gotten a single error 99 message. I'm psyched, I feel like I have a whole new camera now.

hope that it will be help full

thanks

Err 99


Hello hemantp. This error code in this model indicates that the lens electrical contacts are dirty or slightly oxidized. To clean them you will need a common pencil with a clean eraser on the end and a lens cloth.

Detach the lens from the camera and hold it so that the lens' gold contacts are pointing down. Lightly "erase" their exposed surfaces and then clean them with the lens cloth to remove any debris.

Do the same with the gold contacts inside the camera body. Although this is a wee bit more challenging, you can do it by holding the camera so that the lens opening points down. That way no debris will fall inside as you clean. Joe

My cannon rebel eos DS6041 displays error 99 when


'Error 99' indicates some problem with the AF contacts. This is a common error in Canon lenses. It could indicate a very simple problem like dirty contacts or a much serious one like the breakage of USM cable.
As a first step, you can try cleaning the lens and body contacts (the metal contacts between the lens and body) using a pencil eraser. Be careful to hold the body facing down so that no dust falls inside. After cleaning both the lens and the body contacts, re-attach the lens and try shooting. If the AF does not work still, you need to take the lens to an authorized service center.

Whenever I look at my photos one side of the picture is slightly blurry, usually the right side of the print. I have Canon Digital Rebel XTI/EOS. Is there a setting or something I should change or should...


Hi there, as per your information i suggest you please reset the camera from camera Manu option. After that if its working well then fine otherwise its a problem of lens auto focusing. Reason of Dust or there is a guide pin in side the lens. Thats not working, for that you need to service your camera. Another chance is if your camera or lens fall down then there is a chance of mirror movement internally. So batter after reset if not solve the problem then visit service center. Thanks.

Canon camera err 99


Error 99 is when the lens contacts aren't making good contact with the matching gold contacts on the lens opening of the camera body.
An easy remedy is to take a clean pencil eraser and lightly clean the contacts on the lens and the camera body. Be sure to not let any eraser crumbs fall into the camera body....
Reinstall the lens and see if your error is cleared.

Error 99 for canon 350D


Error 99 says on the canon site to upgrade your firmware, so I did that, still no joy. Then i read on this site to clean the contacts between lens and camera with a soft eraser...worked a treat. No more err 99 and I will be keeping the rubber in my kit!!

Autofocus gives erratic results


Are you using this indoors, in low light perhaps? This would be the most common reason for this happening. The only way to get around that is to use a "faster" lens, such as f2.8 / f1.8 / f1.4 etc.

If not, try cleaning the lens and camea contacts with a plastic eraser, make sure no debris falls in the camera body (hold upside down for this).

Canon EOS Rebel XS turns on, but nothing else works!


Take the lens off and the CF card out. Just with the battery in, see if the display works. If not, could be a faulty camera. If it does, switch off, insert the CF card, switch on. Do you see the display now? If not, CF may be faulty, replace it. If it does, switch off, add the lens, switch on. Does the display come on now? If so, looks like it is fixed, if not, looks like the lens is faulty - try removing the lens and cleaning the contacts on the lens and the camera body with a pencil eraser, do not let any debris fall into the camera body (hold it opening down is best).

Will a quantaray 28-105 1:3.8-5.4 Zoom lens Autofocus from a 35mm rebel ti fit on Canon EOS Digital Rebel 6.3 MP 300D?


The 35mm Rebel Ti and the Rebel 300D use the same lens mounting protocol. All Canon cameras designated 'EOS' use the autofocus EF lenses. If your Quantaray lens worked on the Rebel Ti, it will fit and should work on the Rebel 300D.
