Hi i will give u the possible solutions. try out these solutions and one among these will work for u

1)you need to go into the menu , select settings and change av appurature setting to 2 instead of 1

2)with the lens compatibility / connection, U can fiddle around with the lens and try to find whether the aperture ring on the lens had moved from the 'A' (auto) setting to the one manual settings and when u switch it back to the 'A' setting it will solve the problem!

3) The lens is not completely set on the mount, maybe a little extra push in the turn may lock it in position properly

4)The contacts are dirty on either the camera mount or lens and it's blocking communication between them (but they hae to be very dirty though)
5)Highly unlikely, but you may have forced the lens into the mount the incorrect way (need to match the red dots). If that's the case you may have damaged both camera and lens.

but try out the solution no.2 that i have provided u... it will fix ur problem perfect

You seem familiar with these technical issues so I'll assume you have swapped keyboards, Can you actually access BIOS, check if everything is online, Reset the Bios settings to their default (There should be an F button at the bottom)and try and reboot and hopefully this will work, there is a chance your motherboard has an issue try finding out the manufacturer and see if they can provide any help.Best of Luck

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

How do i turn the auto ISO off?


In the Basic Zone modes, you don't. The camera automatically sets the ISO in the range 100-800.

In the Creative Zone modes (P, Tv, Av, M, and A-DEP), press the ISO/Flash Exposure Compensation button (rightmost button in front of the top LCD panel). This will display the current setting on the top panel. While looking at the top panel or in the viewfinder, turn the command main dial (just behind the shutter release button) to change it.

Hello, I went and researched a few points in the manual and hope this helps to some extent. If this doesn't help, try resetting your camera by removing the batteries for 30 seconds, then reinstalling them and turning on the camera again.

• Camera is off.
• Batteries are not correctly inserted or battery-chamber
