Question about Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Autofocus Lens
Posted by Anonymous on
If it focuses OK in manual mode then there is a possibility that you have a damaged ribbon cable in the lens.

First make sure contacts on lens are clean ( see enclosed pic #2 ) . If this does not solve the problem the ultrasonic motor may be faulty pic #1.( sometimes switching on but sometimes not , will have to be replaced , unless there is a bad connection between the motor and lens pc board )

I have had to replace the focusing servo motor is these before. The problem of seeking without locking in may mean the same for your lens. Do check for a dirty filter on the front and look to see if the rear optic is dirty or cloudy first. I'm assuming other lenses work fine on your camera.

Unfortunately, unless you suspect dirt in the lens (been taking pictures on the beach maybe? ;), this sounds like autofocus motor failure.
Even if you manage to source the replacement motor, swapping it is a really fiddly operation.
I would suggest selling the lens for spares on ebay and getting a new one.
They are fairly cheap these days. I recommend getting the IS version - it's much better than the original, although build quality is similar.
