The only correct thing to do is to return it to the place of purchase if the lens is still within the warranty period; take the lens to a local repair shop, OUCH! (expensive); or notify Canon Support for direction.

My 400mm lens is so hard to slide out when I go to zoom what do I do


turn the 'lock/friction ring' (metal band just below the black rubber focusing ring) counter clockwise whilst holding the focusing 'ring' still. The friction/lock ring is used to prevent 'lens creep' when carrying the camera with lens pointing down, or using the lens when it is pointing down. Juust turn it until it applies the level of friction you prefer for operating the lens. If you have already tried this and it won't budge it may be the bearings are shot and you will need to contact a canon service centre for repair.

I have a canon A590 & i accidently dropped it.. the lens got stuck but i put it back in place now the lens wont fully extend


It sounds to me like the gears that extend and retract the lens have been damaged, they are made of plastic and are easily broken. Replacement gears are available on a "well known auction site" that everyone should be familiar with.

Canon powershot lens wont budge the covering gets stuck!!


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Also, if you're just trying to get the photos off of its CF card (so many memories on it), you do realize that you don't need need to download them only from the camera? There is a better way to download them that doesn't involve the camera at all:

Canon Extender EX 1.4x ii not autofocussing


The EOS 40D only use auto focus up to aperture 5.6. Only the 1-series use auto focus up to aperture 8. The adapter adds 1 stop to the lens aperture. Since the 100-400 is a 4.5-5.6, the aperture range with the extender mounted will be 6.3-8.
There is a work around though. Just place a thin strip of insulating tape over the three pins on the lefthand side (lens side of the extender). No damage will occur to the camera or teleconverter.

Canon EF-S 17-85MM F/4-5.6 IS USM prevents features from working on 40D


something sounds strange about this. aperture 00 is an invalid aperture value. stands to reason if that is the case the camera would complain about it. via error code. being that its only six mos. old i would give canon a ring.

Lens won't allow me to change aperture & several other functions on camera


The USM engine may be out of order, or there is a bad contact in the lens.
