Question about Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USN Lens
We have a Canon EOS Rebel & the Canon EFS 18-55mm that originally came with the camera. We have been using the camera with no problem for about 3 yrs when one day the Auto focus stopped working. . Additionally, the auto focus does work with our telephoto 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.

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...

Talked to canon support, they suggested to send lense in for review/repair. They said it could be the motor, I think it was a gear problem based on the noises and jerkiness of the focusing action while in manual focus (manual focus gave out as well). Cost TBD - "would definately be more than $50. I shopped around and elected to buy a new lense rather than try to hassle with the repair, shipping, insurance, and the wait, etc. Besides, I have a deadline that I need the lense for, so repair at Canon really became a non-option. I think the cost would've been pretty much the same in the end as the new lense, since this wasn't one of the costlier of lenses to begin with.

This may not be the same as your issue, but our AF stopped working as well. I tried all the recommended fixes - removing the card and battery, recharging the latter, removing the lens and cleaning the contacts, etc. None of those things worked. However, I then switched to MF, requiring me to turn the barrel, and I realized it was stuck and just needed a little force to get unstuck. Might have been the humidity. Anyway, our problem was solved - AF was back to normal after that.
