Hi- I'm not at all familiar with this model so won't suggest a particular fix. However, in general, you may find some gear or other mechanical linkage, or perhaps a spring holding a gear in place has slipped. That caused the same symptm in some old Kodaks I know of. If you cannot figure it out AND you don't mind not having autofocus, you could disable AF. Inside you will find some sort of small light bulb. Disconnecting one lead will turn off that light and prevent AF from doing anything. If you end up taking that route, make sure you load all your slides in with the emulsion facing the same way (that's the less shiny side of the slide). This will reduce the amount of focus difference between slides.

How do i turn off auto focus?


To strictly turn off the auto-focus, you have 2 options:
1. Some generations of 5600's have an Autofocus On/Off Switch. If so equipped, move the switch to "Off".
2. Remove the bottom cover. Locate the auto-focus motor and clip on of the wires that power the motor.
If repair is what you want to do, the problem becomes more complex and expensive! You will have to contact: www.micro-tools.com
You can order the 2 special tools, instructions and any other parts you need from them. When Kodak stopped supporting the slide projector business, micro tools bought out the remaining repair parts.

Why does autofocus keeps moving in and out on some slides


The autofocus system isn't really "autofocus". It is a measuring system - you manually focus the first slide, which sets the distance from the front of the slide in the gate to the back of the projection lens. By the focus motor moving the projection lens, subsequent slides will maintain that same distance. Continuous focus adjustment suggests that:
1> The curvature of the slide is changing because of the varying heat absorption rate of the transparency.
2> The autofocus system is out of calibration.
3> The autofocus system has a bind (it is being restricted from free operation).
About the only thing a user can do is to make sure ALL slides are oriented the same way in the tray. Beyond that, you will need a service manual and 2 or 3 specialized tools. Parts and tools can be purchased from: www.micro-tools.com

Good Luck !! jim

The manual focus ring on my camera doesn't work. The ring turns but does not seem to adjust the focus. Automated focusing still works. How to fix it?


Two methods:-

1. Use the slider switch on the left of the camera to set it to MF (manual focus). The focus ring is an electronic one rather than a physical control like the zoom ring, so the response can seem slow.

2 Go into the camera menu and enable DMF (Direct Manual Focus). This allows you to override the autofocus simply by adjusting the focus control, but it does not work if the slider switch is set to the AF C setting (continuous autofocus), it only work in the AF-S (AF only activates once when the shutter is half pressed).

The autofocus will not focus. The paper is blurry. How can I fix it?


Remove the orange plastic parts near the camera.

There is a square opening/hole.

Get a long small screwdriver and adjust the screw connected to the lens.

I did this with it on, so I could see if it was making a difference. I am not 100% sure if adjusting the screw was the fix. However, moving stuff around in that area seemed to make a huge difference.

Brand new Canon EOS Rebel XS. Suddenly, image in the view finder is blurry. Auto focus seems to be working, and pictures are coming out fine. But sometimes, the autofocus focuses on the wrong thing, and so...


Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.

Autofocus off


Is this when you are trying to focus on something close up? If so you want to go into Portrait mode (turn dial to little head) then hit down arrow on the wheel once to MF mode (manual focus), then use the left and right arrow to focus specific inches or cm.

LS5000 ED with slidefeeder sf 210


Hi there I had the same problem with auto focus sf-210.
If tried many things to correct the problem and what I found was that if you you put a small book halfway on the opposite site of the power button then I have maybe 1 or to slides out of focus and the other 35 slides are perfect ! (I used it with HAMA slides other slides I didn't test )

Hope this wil work also for you,

Won't autofocus


First try another lens on the body and see if the problem is the lens or the body,if its the body the autofocus mirror could be out of adjustment, if its the lens, it sounds like the lens took an impact and needs a pro repair. you should be able to set body to manual focus and focus lens to infinty.
