Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens
2-3 year old camera that I inherited from a previous journalism instructor.
Camera has not had any problems in the past.
Regardless of the lens, camera will spend lots of time trying to focus, but will not take a picture.
Turning camera off and then on again
New battery (fully charged)
New CF card (and have checked to ensure the card is installed correctly)
Cleaning the lens contacts (on lenses and in camera)
Flash up/flash down
and too many others (however, silly) to list
Please help! I cannot find any answers in the Canon "book" (the .pdf version online) to this problem or any answers anywhere else online.
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.
