Canon Rebel XSi won't autofocus and makes grinding sound


There is nothing that auto-focuses except the circuit in the body - all the motors, gears etc. are in the lenses. If this is a 18-55 lens then more than likely the long shaft gear has broken teeth - a very common problem.

This lens makes a whirring noise when attached to the camera body. It will not focus in either manual or automatic. The camera works well with the other lens.


Sounds like the focus mechanism is broken on that lens. There's a small screw on the back of it where it meets the camera body, the motor in the camera body turns that screw to autofocus. To me it sounds like the screw is turning, but the lens isn't focusing. You said it also doesn't focus in manual mode, so there is probably something inside the lens that needs repair or replacement. Your best option is to take it to a camera repair shop and ask them for an estimate, camera lenses are not the kind of thing you can take apart and fix on your own. Hope that helps.

I turn on the camera and it starts to focus in and focus out making a noise and then appears ''lens error''..


The gears in the lens housing is grinding because of grit build up, it must be taken apart and cleaned in order to get it back to proper operational standards.

It is making a constant strange noise when it is turned on. does it mean it is broken?


Not necessarily.
This camera has an auto lens. Which means it will focus automatically every second, which makes this clicking sound. You can turn this option off:
1: Go into the menu
2: Chose option Cam Settings
3: Switch AUTO focus to single lens and click OK.

My kodak m340 makes some clicking noise when taking videos, when i play it, i can hear the clicking in the background


The auto focus is what makes the sound. When the camera is in auto mode the sound can not be taken off. For videos and all other options on the top dial the sound can be taken away. Simply go into any mode on the top of the camera except auto; I chose video. click on the menu button and scroll down to AF CONTROL. Change from CONTINUOUS AF to SINGLE AF. This will knock out the auto focus from making that clicking sound while taking a video. The auto focus is the main component to the camera so it's really nice to have on all other dial settings; JUST NOT VIDEO!! :) Hope this helps you guys!

Camera will not focus...makes screaching noise in auto mode


Hi cham4017, It sounds as though the lens has grit or dirt or the like in the zoom. You could attempt to vacuum it however, I suspect it will need to go to Nikon for cleaning. I have mentioned this to others, the 18-55 is not well weather sealed as a pro lens is. Realize this is an inexpensive consumer lens. One major difference between consumer and pro lens is the weather sealing.

Out of focus


Sounds like the camera is trying to focus if you hear sound when pressing the shutter halfway down or zooming. If the noise is a scraping or grinding sound, you might have debris stuck between the cracks of the lens and the camera body. This happened to me after i dropped my canon sd550 on the beach just once and it never recovered. Next to water sand has got to be one of a camera's worse enemy. Also, the lens might be cocked a bit which would prevent the camera from focusing and zooming smoothly. Try gently adjusting the the lens. Sometimes the slightest imperfection in the lens will throw everything off. Good luck!
