Will not take picture


If the view finder is dim it is likely the iris of the lens is stuck and cannot acquire correct lighting. It need to be repaired by disassembling the lens.

The view finder or screen are black. The lens moves out when the camera is powered on, I can hear the shutter click when pushed; the telephoto is moving; I have all the settings show on the screen when...


I know it may sound like the shutter is moving, but you're going to have to actually look down the lens barrel to confirm it's actually moving, and not just producing a sound effect from the camera. Also keep in mind Canon's SX IS series cameras are notorious for the following problem (fantastic cameras otherwise).
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.

Zoom pictures lower than what see in viewfinder


That's normal...it's called parallax error because the view finder is not in the same plane as the lens. Why don't you use the LCD screen to compose your shots?

Cannot Wind nor See Thru View Finder


Whew!!! Many things to check. It sounds like the camera is not opening the lens up between shots. It could be a linkage issue. Look into lens while its on the camera. can you see the blades of the aperture? Turn the aperture ring. Any change? It is supposed to stay wide open except during exposure. Remove the lens. Move the lever on the back of it. See a change? Does it snap when you move it? If not, then the lens needs repair, not the camera. I forget...does the XGA have a DoF preview button? If so, its likely on front at bottom of lens mount. Push and release. If its in Preview mode, the lens remains stopped down(not wide open)based on the setting of the aperture ring.

Nikon 18-55mm AF-S/ VR lense shudder?


I believe you're hearing the VR in the lens adjusting. Try turning the VR off and see if you hear the sound. If not, then you have a normal operating lens.

dear kwilsey,
just turn on your camera and look at the front side of camera.i.e just note tat your lens shutter is opened. if lens shutter is opened then prob is with your ccd devices. Contact the nearest authorised service centers.

No picture.


Recheck everything about the camera.
Batteries, are they fresh, or fully recharged?
Too many problems without knowing more of what is happening, in my opinion.

subaru662,
can you see the lens in the finder move when you zoom out? if not ,the finder lens is stuck.
if it does move when zooming, see if you have a diopter adjustment wheel or sliding knob near the front lens of the finder. if so adjust the lens to your eye.

Autofcous and manual focus do not work


excuse me if this is a dumb question but you wouldn't believe the things people do...., but in manual mode are you actually manually trying to move the lens? as manual mode means just that you take hold of the lens and turn it. If it wont turn it sounds like the lens is jammed and needs returning/repairing.

if taking hold of the lens and turning it works for manual mode, take the lens off and clean the gold contacts on both the camera and the lens with a pencil erasor this may bring the auto focus back to life, switch back to auto and try again, if not its most likely the lens but take the body to a canon store and try another lens just to double check the body is ok

drop me a line if i can be of further assistance

best of luck
