Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

I dropped my camera and the lens was attached, in the fall the lens broke off the body. The piece of the lens that attaches to the body was damaged so it will not lock in position. otherwise i think it might still work. how hard is it to replace this part of a canon zoomlens ef 90-300mm 1:4.5-5.6 i see 4 screw at the part that is damaged. is it possible to just replace this part of the lens

That was a very sad thing to happen. There is no quick fix solution for this. You should take it to an authorized service center. But I fear this is not going to be an inexpensive process. Let them have a look and assess the damages. We have no way of judging what could have happened inside--whether there has been any misalignment of elements or focusing mechanism.

According to ehow:

Turn off your Canon 1000D and remove the memory card, lens, battery and time/date secondary battery. The secondary battery is a small, round battery about the size of a dime found in the same compartment as the main battery. It is located in a vertical slot. Slide out the secondary battery by pressing your finger on the battery and pulling it toward you.
  • Place the body cap on your camera to keep dust out. Attach the front and back lens caps on your lens to prevent scratches and other damage.
  • Let the camera sit for 20 minutes. This will clear the camera's memory.
  • Place the date/time secondary battery and a fully charged primary battery in the camera and turn it on.
  • Press the shutter release button (the button you push to take a picture). If you are still receiving an Error 99, the problem is most likely caused by the camera body itself. The camera body must be serviced by a professional camera technician.
  • Turn off the camera and insert the memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the memory card. Turn off your camera and insert a different memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release again.
  • Turn off the camera and reattach the lens. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you receive an Error 99, turn the camera off and remove the lens.
  • Turn the camera so that it is face down, and gently clean the lens contacts on the camera body with a number 2 pencil eraser or soft cloth. The lens contacts are the eight small, gold pieces on the bottom of the lens mount. Be careful not to let any of the eraser scraps fall into the camera body.
  • Turn the lens so that the side that attaches to the camera is upside down. Use the eraser or soft cloth to clean the lens contacts on the lens, being careful not to let any eraser scraps fall into the lens.
  • Reattach the lens to the camera. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the lens. Take the lens to a professional camera technician for repair.

    Dropped my canon eos350d with 18-55m lens. where the lens attaches to the camera is broken ie the casing along the edge that connects to the camera, hence light is getting in and camera is not functioning...


    I'm trying to read this correctly, is it the lens that is cracked or the camera/camera body mount?
    If it is just the lens you may find it less expensive to purchase a new lens the 18-55mm is a kit lens and fairly inexpensive to purchase over repairing one. If it is the camera I'm not sure what to suggest and the repair would be very expensive to replace the chassis outer body.

    I dropped my Nikon d50 and now when I turn it on it flashes fEE. Whats wrong?


    The lens is not making proper contact with the camera. Try removing the lens, cleaning the contacts on both the back of the lens and in the lens mount on the body, then reattaching the lens. If that doesn't do it, try jiggling the lens gently. If that doesn't do it, try attaching a different lens if you have one available, or attaching the lens to a different body if that is possible. If nothing works then it could be that the lens and/or camera needs servicing after the drop.

    Did the only the lens drop or was the lens attached to the camera body? If the lens was attached to the camera, you need to verify that the problem is in fact the lens and not the camera body. The easiest way to do that is to try a different lens on your camera body or your lens on a different body. If you do not have access to either, I would find a local camera store that sells Nikon equipment. I am sure they will let you put your lens on one of there bodies. In any case, ff the damage is as extensive as it sounds from your brief description, you need to take it to a camera repair man. This is not a do-it-yourself job.

    18-55mm lens won't zoom


    DON'T TRY TO FIX THIS YOURSELF! You will only add to the damage. If your lens is in warranty, contact Nikon for instructions to get it repaired. If it is out of warranty, I would either pay Nikon for the repair or take it to a camera repair man.

    Lens not attached


    Is there a piece of tape across the lens contacts, like the film over a print cartridge head? I would think that is the only communication between the lens and the body.
