    You dunked a sensitive electronic device underwater. How was my answer inappropriate? Do you really need someone to tell you to take it to a shop for repair? Or do you want ta magic word to make it all better?

I have a Cannon 40D 28-135mm lens. With the lens in auto focus, the lens will act as if it has found the target will focus, beep, ready to shoot. The lens then makes a focusing sound and moves just a...


Does the camera still work even thought it does a small extra adjustment?

Are your pictures fine and is the camera working ok otherwise?

If your pictures are good then theres noting to worry about.

if on the other hand you can't take pictures, try reseting the camera, there should be a small reset hole in it.

Will not release shutter on canon 40D


Cannon is notorious for their auto focus and automatic setting to be very discriminant. If you are to close to your subject while in these settings granted your strobe will fire and your flash may flip into position but the shutter just wont work. Cannon is trying to tell you you are too close. You need to back up. If you are trying to get that close up and don't have the proper lens that's all you are going to get.
It is best to go long lens then go for your close up.

Canon 40D and 64Gb CF Card


What i find is that the larger the card the slower the write recovery in taking pictures. If you are an action photographer this is a pain as things happen fast . To have the camera take so long to recover from a write leaves you open to losing some excellent shots. So my rule of thumb is use smaller value cards. If you are just a happy shots photographer then this probably doesn't really matter.

Thanks for using Fixya

Preview screen half white, with black blob!


I think ribbon connector of LCD is misaligned in your camera.
If you are comfortable with it, please apart camera and readjust ribbon connector at main board.

Cannon lenses


All canon EF lenses (and compatibles e.g. Sigma EX) can be used with both analog and digital  EOS-bodies. Depending on the sensor size (usually smaller than a 35 mm negative) a crop-factor due to the smaller field of view must be considered.  Example: Canon EF 50mm/1.8 lens used on a digital EOS (40D, crop factor 1.6) equals a 80mm lens (50mm x 1.6) compared to analog cameras using 35mm film. Some digital EOS-models can also use EF-S lens-series.

Internal Temperature too high to shoot.


This is obviously a problem with the internal parts of the camera. There are too many things it could be to give a definitive answer, and it would be too complicated for an amateur. If you take it into a local camera shop they should be able to run diagnostics on it and replace the problem.
Best of luck to you.

Firing "lag time" response


Hi poseguerai, 
Try this:
I had the same issue and even if it sounds crazy giving a massage to the shutter button all around in circles helped and when you switch on the camera has no shutter lag again.
I hope it works as it did for me.
