Canon lens 18-55mm for canon rebel xt

My camera was dropped and now my 18-55mm lens will not fully rotate back to the 18 mark. It feels really tight when turning. Is there anything I can do to fix this. Also my camera will not take any pics with this lens. Thank you. Lori

I dropped a lens and it wouldn't rotate into fully locked position too. The little flange that holds the lens in the camera was bent.  I had to bend the flange back.  It's a delicate operation.  Check if one of your locking flanges was dinged.  Have you tried a different lens?? Will it lock into place?  The camera won't see the lens without it fully locked in.  You can still do manual pics though.

How does the release switch feel? If you don't feel the two separate 'pops' when you depress it then it probably needs to be replaced. Try pushing it all around - from the front, back, both sides, etc. and see if you can get the camera to release.

Set the menu so you can fire the camera without a card inserted and see if it will then fire. Also remove the lens and set the camera to 'M' and see if it will fire.

Check the CF pins for bent pins.

No power - fully charged battery


How about cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then, with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

You have your own answer - the lens is damaged, probably beyond economic repair.

Stabilizer


the lens you really need to own with the xt is the ultrasonic series which are the stabilized lenses-these lens run from 500-600 and up-not cheap. If your doing handheld telephoto w/no tripod can really make a difference-more important to spend this extra money on a lens from 75 mm and up as a wide angle or portrait lens really isn't as critical-stock lens on xt is a cheap quality lens-upgrade to a 75-300 image stabilized lens and you'll cover almost all your bases except wide angle which i would get a 10-22-good luck
