I hope you have solved this problem if not there is two things that have happened to me one was that I had unlocked the lens and it turned a little which shut off the communications between the camera ad lens. The other is where the gold contacts between the camera and lens became slightly dirty with a hazy this is easily fixed with a DIY. using a pencil eraser gently polish the contacts between the camera and lens both sets of contacts, be careful not to get dirt into the camera or lens when you are doing this. Don't use a puffer or any air.

How do you fix blury digital photographs that look out of focus

It depends on which photo editor software you're using (some more effective than others). Canon usually ships your camera with a copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements. Choose "Sharpen" from the Edit toolbar.

My digital Rebel is not focusing the lens correctly

Frequently the cause for these problems regardless of the camera manufacturer is either the small, brass connections are dirty, the back glass of the lens is dirty, or the reflector is dirty. Use caution when cleaning the glass, only use the proper cloth. Same goes for the reflector.
To clean the brass connectors use a foam tip Q-tip or very very carefully use a regular Q-tip. Dip it in 99% alcohol (NOT regular isopropyl alcohol, it's only 70% and contains water - not good! Be sure to check the label!) Once the contacts are clean on both the camera body and the lens, allow them to dry thoroughly (which doesn't take long outside, but any alcohol that got in the cracks may still be wet.). Not allowing the parts to dry completely can cause them to short out, then you've go bigger problems. Just a little patience goes a long way!
Good Luck!

Autofocus jumps around and often will not settle on the correct setting

what i do is usually put it onto manual focus then back to auto focus, what it may be is that you are using the wrong lens for your subject :/
