Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

My lens will not come off my Digital Rebel...

I have the original Digital Rebel and have several lenses that I use. The original 18-55 mm lens is not working so I purchased a 50 mm lens for every day use. I have taken it off and on several months now without any issues but now when I try to take it off to change the lens, it will turn just slightly when I push in the release button and then stops. It will not release nor turn any further. Help! ETA: The camera itself is almost six years old and never had any problems with it.

SOURCE: AF and shutter release failure

There was a lot of discussion of this when the Mk II was new. Many people "fixed" it doing just the things you did. Also, some reported that mounting the lens on another camera "fixed" it. IIRC, in the end it ended up being a lens issue. IS module. Canon can repair.

SOURCE: Nikon D80 black spot center of photos

There is dust on the imaging sensor, and it will need to be cleaned off. A local repair shop can take care of this, or search photography forums for proper technique. Note, improper cleaning can damage the sensor, so use caution.

SOURCE: Camera won't shoot with lens on Auto Focus

Talked to canon support, they suggested to send lense in for review/repair. They said it could be the motor, I think it was a gear problem based on the noises and jerkiness of the focusing action while in manual focus (manual focus gave out as well). Cost TBD - "would definately be more than $50. I shopped around and elected to buy a new lense rather than try to hassle with the repair, shipping, insurance, and the wait, etc. Besides, I have a deadline that I need the lense for, so repair at Canon really became a non-option. I think the cost would've been pretty much the same in the end as the new lense, since this wasn't one of the costlier of lenses to begin with.

SOURCE: Nikon D40x AF-S Nikkor 18-55 mm 1:3.5-5.6 GII ED Lense Trouble

I've found the same thing with my D40x and the 18-55mm AF-S lens. I took a really close look at it and found that the mount on the lens is badly worn on all three of the bayonet tangs and one is cracked at the base. What happens in my case is that the lens has movement when mounted on the camera - just enough to stop the contacts from mating properly. Hence, no photos. Am taking it to Nikon to get it fixed. I suggest if this is your problem, that you take it to the repair man.

SOURCE: Canon EOS Digital Rebel 300D will not take pictures

Have you tried to take picture by switching off the autofocus to manual focus in a prperly lit environment?
If it takes a picture, then it has something to do with your auto focus system of your camera. In such a case: try taking out the battery, the memory card etc and switch off the camera and keep it for like that for about 5 minutes. And then insert only the fully charged battery and try again.
If it still gives you a problem and keep trying to focus You will need to take it to the nearest Canon Service centre.

My canon ds6041 displays err 99 when i try to capture light aur object in sun light.What should i do i'm using 70-21-mm lense


Usually this is cased by shutter failure or failure of the aperture unit in the lens. Try another lens and see if you get the same error message - that will tell you if the problem is in the camera body or lens

Are older Sigma Quantaray lenses that I used with a 35 mm SLR Canon Rebel 2000EOS compatible with new DSLR Canon bodies?


Yes. Bear in mind that many Canon digital SLRs have a sensor smaller than a frame of 35mm film. This results in the image being cropped, narrowing the field of view and making the lens behave as if it was of a longer focal length.

Welcome to Fixya
Err 99 could mean several different things, such as... Memory Card, Lens or Lens contacts....

Here's what you can try:
Remove the memory card an enable "shooting with out memory card" and see if you still get the error. If it works your memory card is bad. Try another lens if you can. Clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser (be careful not to get eraser dust in the camera body or in the lens). Worst case scenario is, Err 99 could be related to the shutter failing which would mean a trip to Canon.

Thank you for using Fixya!

This means that the communication with the Quantarey lens is not the right one.

You can try in cleaning the lens contacts and the camera contacts with a pencil eraser or a white erase (flip down the camera so no particles get inside the mirror box).

If still you are having problems, then that means the Quantarey lens is defective, and either needs to be service to be repaired, or you will need to get another zoom lens.

Quantary 100-300mm telephoto lense


I have been researching this problem and found there's nothing you can do. Appararently, the quantaray, being an older lens, wasn't made to work with this latest era of cameras. Though it might work perfectly with your older camera, its technology is outdated as it relates to digital cameras and can't mesh with the latest and greatest. By the way, most of my questions were answered on the Digital Camera Resource page (www.dcresource.com)
