    Me too. I think that some plastic broke off. It looks like the end comes apart. Anyone know where to get parts?

Best thing is take this into your local camera shop and try another lens...if the problem persists,you have damage to the camera.

Though does sound like you have snapped the lens mount and im not sure if this is repairable.

Best of luck.

When the time to operate my 18 to 55mm is not working how can i fix this can you help me what to do


Hi Tom, if it your first time operating the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USN Lens then this wont be that difficult. To operate the lens, simply attach it to the DSLR body, turning the lens untill it clicks into place. To zoom the lens, turn the grip section of the lens both ways.

Loose barrel lens can't stay in place connected to the body


Take it to your local camera dealer. They can snug it up for you, or you can do it yourself with a small philips screw driver(like what you would use on a pair of glasses.) Just snug the rings on both the camera and the lens.

I dropped my camera, with lens attached, and although the body works fine, the lens will not focus. Take the lens off the camera, and look into the back of it (the lens), and there is a round, black,...


Wow I appreciate your spirit but this is probably a loosing battle. Even if there was a repair manual you would still need the tools. This is a $150.00 - $200.00 lens. I'd probably elect to buy a new one and sell the broken one on EBAY for parts or try to take it apart just to satisfy my curiosity. Sounds like you like adventure.

Good Luck!

HELP APERTURE PROBLEM! When I attach any lens to the Nikon FM10


This is normal. the lens stay at the largest opening so you can see to focus, then the mechanics will close to the setting when the exposure is made. This is part of the reflex in single lens reflex (SLR). This part staying open when you focus keeps lyou from having to open the aperture to focus and then close it to the correct setting to shoot the picture.

AV error whn pentax ist DL & Quantaray zoom lens attached


I've got the same problem. The problem is that the lense is loosely attached to the body. What you need to do is that when you see the Av flashing, press the lense of the camera to the body and twist the lense to the left a bit. This tightens the connection. You can then take the photo.

When taking a picture the mirror inside the camera stays up untill you remove the lens


It seems that the lens is restricting the operation of the camera mechanism a possible cause may be the lens actuating mechanism is stiff from being underused, from you description the manual setting for your lens is ok but when attached to the camera the pin on the lens which is activated by a bar situated in the camera at the bottom of the lens mount cannot be pushed fully home. Try pushing the pin on the end of the lens to see if it is being restricted and if so may need cleaning or just a few operations to free it off.

Lens not attached


Is there a piece of tape across the lens contacts, like the film over a print cartridge head? I would think that is the only communication between the lens and the body.

Lens is loose from body


One note on this fix. There are four screws that need to be tightened on the lens. With the cover off and the lens pointing straight forward, there are three small screws visible. After tightening them, rotate the lens upward to expose the fourth screww. After that one is tightened, you can then replace the cover and six cover screws.
