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

    bought the camera second hand. Can hold the lens in place, but as soon as I let go, the "lens not attached' message displays

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.

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.

Hello, my EOS 350D digital camera won't focus. The auto focus isn't working.... If it does try to take a photo then it comes up with and "error 99". Is there a way to reinitialize the camera or fix this...


'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.

Inherited bronica etrsi camera, removed lens and now cant get it back on, dont have manual, please can you advise. thanks barb.


A. To attach the lens to the main body, align the red dots on the lens
and the main body and then insert the lens fully into its mount.
Rotate in the counter-clockwise direction until it stops, with an audible
click, which will indicate that it is securely locked.

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.

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.

Digital dsc F707 problem


I used Super Glue and my camer ia stil working.  However you need to be very careful taht no glue gets onto the lens itself as it cannot come off and will give your pictures a blurred effect
