Question about Canon Rebel Cameras
Make sure lens is set on AF and not M. Clean body and lens contacts with a Q-tip dipped in alcohol. Try multiple lenses to make sure it is not a problem with just one lens. Put the lens on M and turn the front and make sure it turns freely and is not stuck by impact/spillage etc. Push down on the release button and make sure you have two distinct 'pops' (release switch may be broken). Gently lift up mirror and make sure that the AF sub mirror also comes up properly. Impact can break the little plastic guide pin for the sub mirror so that it is not in the right position and the AF will not work. Also make sure that the spring that makes the sub mirror come up is in position (they come off). Can be on either the right or left side of the mirror depending upon the model.
These are the steps I would take if you brought your camera into the shop I work at.
