It may be that the ribbon connector has broken in the lens.

SOURCE: lens auto focus sometimes does not work.

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 )

SOURCE: Auto Focus not working for Canon EFS 18-55mm lens

This usually happens when the contacts between the lens and the camera are dirty. Try taking the lens off and cleaning carefully the metal contacts on the camera and the lens. If that does not solve the problem, you can get a warranty repair or replacement since that camera should still be under the original 12 month warranty.

SOURCE: Auto Focus not working for Canon EFS 18-55mm lens

I see this same problem occuring all over the internet on Canon lenses. Autofocus not working any longer. For some stupid reason the lense will lock up and quit autofocus while other lenses will work fine. A light pull on the lense focus ring away from the camera body will give a noticable pop or click which unlocks the jammed lense. Try it if you are having troubles with your autofocus. This is a very common problem and worth giving it a try.

My canon eos 300d will not lock onto autofocus, no matter which lens I use. Consequently, cannot take fotos using "A/F". (Works ok on Manual Focus) Help!


Clean the contacts on the camera body (and the lens, too) where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Canon 40D will no longer work if on auto focus. Will only take a picture in manual focus.


When in auto focus does the lens try to focus?
Sounds like your lens is the problem, you can try to clean the gold contacts on both the camera and on the lens with a pencil eraser (Make sure not to get any eraser dust in either the camera or the lens). If you can try a different lens on your camera and see if that one will work.
Please post a comment if you need more help on this.

EOS Rebel 300 D will not focus


Assuming you have not switched auto focus off on the lens and not been in the camera menus you should try a different lens to eliminate whether it is the body or the lens. Body failure to focus is rare and unlikely, more likely to be the motor in the lens.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

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.

Auto Focus Not Working


I had a same problem, Auto Focus works in all the Basic modes but it did not work in Advanced and Manual modes.  After couple of hours of frustration I found the solution. It worked for me, I hope it will work for you too.
Follow step by step instructions. Start the Camera
Go to M (Manual Mode) Press Menu Button Go to 6-th Tab Custom Functions (C.Fn) Select Clear settings Select Clear all Custom Func. (C.Fn)
This should fix your problem
Go back to shooting more and try your Auto Focus

I would only suggest you might clean the metal contacts on the inside rim of the lens....just be very careful what you use....a pencil eraser is good but make sure you clean away any shavings that might get into the camera...

Auto focus quit


I am having the same problem with my Rebel. Canon recommended cleaning the contacts on the camera and on the lens. After that they recommended sending it in for repairs. Let me know if anything works for you as mine still does not work.

Focus problem


Suggestion: 1. camera probably has a sharpness setting. 2. avoid wide open, F/5.6 is the sweet spot on most lenses.
