SOURCE: Dust inside the canon ef 24 85mm lens

CAUTION! DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT DISASSEMBLING YOUR LENS. In 1964, I made the mistake of doing the same thing for a single focal-length lens for my Nikon F. This lens did not even approach the mechanical complexity of a modern zoom lens. Lenses are put together like jigsaw puzzles. I removed one screw and found to go further, I needed to do another. In fifteen minutes, the lens was in 50 pieces on the table. It cost over $175 to have a camera repair man reassemble it. This was a a time when the top of the line Nikon sold for $300 vs. $5000 today. Usually dust between elements does not affect performance, but if it is degrading your pictures, take the lens to a professional. This is not a job for an amateur.

If your AF motor is hunting then the lens probably needs to be looked at. I wouldn't recommend this as something to do at home so you will need to either find a repair shop if it is out of warranty or return it to Canon if it is in warranty.

SOURCE: Auto Focus not working for Canon EFS 18-55mm lens

This usually happens when the contacts between the lens and the camera are dirty. Try taking the lens off and cleaning carefully the metal contacts on the camera and the lens. If that does not solve the problem, you can get a warranty repair or replacement since that camera should still be under the original 12 month warranty.

SOURCE: Auto Focus not working for Canon EFS 18-55mm lens

I see this same problem occuring all over the internet on Canon lenses. Autofocus not working any longer. For some stupid reason the lense will lock up and quit autofocus while other lenses will work fine. A light pull on the lense focus ring away from the camera body will give a noticable pop or click which unlocks the jammed lense. Try it if you are having troubles with your autofocus. This is a very common problem and worth giving it a try.

18-55mm lens wont auto focus


If the lens will focus on manual focus but won;t on auto focus you may have a ribbon connector failure in the lens. This ribbon continually flexis as the lens moves in and out. Over time this can break and will probably need to be replaced. All good camera repair shop should be able to do this for you and this remady is one of the cheaper repairs to photographic equipment

I accidently knocked over my camera with the lens attached. It is a canon rebel t1i. Now when i go to take a picture, it won't focus, unless the camera lens is all the way zoomed out. When i switch it...


The impact damage to the lens will require complete disassembly to repair. These are quite complicated but can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

I have a Canon EOS 550D camera fitted with a Canon Zoom Lens EF-S 18-200mm lens. I bought both together sometime early in 2010 from London Camera Exchange, Nottingham. I am not in Nottingham at the moment,...


Just a thought - are your Image Stabilizer and Auto Focus switches On or Off?
Might be worth experimenting with them.
Otherwise, sorry, can't help.
May be necessary to contact your vendor.

New Canon EFS 18-135mm IS lens failed to auto focus on EOS Rebel XTI and shutter won't release to take photo. Lens over a few months has worked without a problem. What is the problem?


Make sure both the lens and the camera are switched to af (auto focus). If that doesn't work remove the lens and replace it to make sure it is mounted properly. You can also check the camera with a different lens to make sure it isn't a problem with the settings on the camera. If all of that fails take it to a camera or electronics store that does service work to make sure it hasn't been damaged.

The camera will not fire the shutter when I use my 17-85 lens on AUTO FOCUS. It will not let me manually focus as well. what can I do.


1. First of all, make sure the lens is aligned properly and it's not loose in any way. The camera will immediately recognize the problem and will not let you fire the shutter.

2. Allow your lens to auto focus on an object (preferably something that's on your wall). See if it detects the object when you half press the shutter, and once it does press it down all the way.

3. If this is still not the case, the lens itself may be causing the problem. Make sure your camera is compatible with the lens (though most Canon lens are compatible with the EF-S series, it's still wise to check in Canon.com)

My 400mm lens is so hard to slide out when I go to zoom what do I do


turn the 'lock/friction ring' (metal band just below the black rubber focusing ring) counter clockwise whilst holding the focusing 'ring' still. The friction/lock ring is used to prevent 'lens creep' when carrying the camera with lens pointing down, or using the lens when it is pointing down. Juust turn it until it applies the level of friction you prefer for operating the lens. If you have already tried this and it won't budge it may be the bearings are shot and you will need to contact a canon service centre for repair.
