Question about Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

I have very small problem with shutter curtain when I opened my Canon EOS Rebel G camera back. There are five pieces across. First (top), 2nd, and 5th pieces are in the right places but 3rd and 4th are crooking. Those two need to be adjusted or to be straighted. I know I can not touch them with my fingers. What do I need to move those two down to the right places. Those two on the left side are behind second piece. Thank you Janice

Whole curtain needs replacement.
Yes, you can put it back in place, but you'll have light leak.

How to turn off shutter sound


You can't. The sound is caused by a lot of moving parts within the T5i. The mirror reflex flips up, the leading edge of the shutter curtain moves across the frame, the trailing edge moves across the frame, then the mirror flips down. All this happens very quickly, and the sound can be dampened only so much.

I'm using a Canon EOS Rebel X S 35mm SLR What setting should i set my camera for a manual shutter speed?


If your camera is a Rebel XS you should have a dial on the top right with a series of letters and icons. To set your camera so you manually control the shutter speed turn this dial too "TV" (Time Value). This setting will allow you to select the shutter speed and the aperture will open or close to achieve the correct exposure. The "M" is (Manual) where you would select both the shutter speed and aperture "AV" is (Aperture Value) where the user selects the aperture they want and the shutter speed increases or decreases to obtain a proper exposure. The "P" (Program) mode allows the camera to automatically select the shutter speed and aperture

Half of the picture is black on every picture.


If the affected photos were taken using a flash then you simply had the shutter speed set too high. The fastest shutter speed you may use when using flash is 1/90th of a second; with anything faster the second shutter curtain starts to travel across the film plane before the first one has fully crossed so only part of the negative is exposed.

If they were taken without flash then your camera has a faulty shutter assembly which must be replaced. It's not a DIY job, it's not cheap, and on a consumer grade 35mm SLR like any of the Rebel/EOS triple digit models it's usually not cost effective. Especially when there are millions of them lying unused and regularly available for next to nothing on auction websites and for absolutely nothing on FreeCycle/Freegle.

There is a problem with shutter curtain when I opened the camera back to put new film in. There are five pieces across. First (top), 2nd, and 5th pieces are in the right places but 3rd and 4th are...


Hi Janice, you really should take your camera in to a repair shop. That work should be done by a pro because you might get it right...and you might get it wrong. If your wrong, then you may as well toss it out the window.
If it were mine, I would attempt to push them back into place with a q-tip.
You have to remember though...why did they come apart in the first place? Is your camera missing a screw, and when you got them back in place (if you get them back in place), would it just happen again?
That's why you should take it to a pro. They will be able to fix why it happened in the first place. Hope this helps.

Shutter won't fire...(same ol' same ol' with a new trip.)


By releasing the magnet on the bottom as you have described, the shutter curtains will run together since there is no electrical current charging the magnet to hold the 2nd curtain. No Worries..

Canon EOS Rebel G - The picture is cut in half


I'm afraid this is almost certainly a shutter fault - the second curtain of the focal-plane shutter is getting stuck half-way across the film and therefore not shutting properly. The fact that the other half of each frame is OK makes me think that the second curtain is not sticking totally but just moving very slowly for half of its run, thus seriously overexposing that half of the film. This is a repair shop job - unless you want to try it yourself: it may be just some dirt stuck in the track the shutter curtain runs in, but a fair bit of skill is needed to get to it & clean it without damaging anything!

Picture nearly all black


Lets see if the shutter curtains are opening properly : set to B and open the film back of the camera. Now release shutter and see if the first s. curtain has opened nicely and swiftly. Then release the second s. curtain and again see if you get proper closing of the curtain. If the shutter curtains ( usually just one misbehaves ) is slow to close then the shutter unit needs looking at . ( btw no point pouring liquids like benzine etc. into the shutter curtain are ... will make things worse ).

AE-1 Didn't Take Pics


Possibly the film did not go through the camera. If it did, the problem may be the 2nd(or closing)curtain magnet on the bottom of the camera. When the magnet is working the closing curtain of the shutter is held back 1 to 1000 miliseconds-depending on the shutter speed selected by you. 1ms=1/1000 sec. 1000ms=1 sec. You can tell by 1. removing the lens 2.setting the shutter speed to the "B" setting 3. opening the film door and looking through the camera 4. releasing or firing the camera and keeping pressure on the release button. If the magnet is working, the shutter will stay open as long as the release button is kept pressed down. The closing curtain will close as soon as the release button is released. When the magnet fails, both curtains travel across the film plane together and no exposure is made. Sometimes there is corrosion on the magnet where the wires connect. Sometimes there is some foreign substance or object that interferes with the face of the metal unit that attaches to the magnet when the camera is wound. Sometimes the magnet just fails and needs to be replaced. If the magnet checks out OK the problem may be in the circuits that control the release of the magnet. If this is the problem, the camera needs to be looked at by a competent repair shop. Just so you know, new parts are getting hard to come by, but there are tons of used cameras around that parts can taken from. Hope this helps.
