Sound like the secondary autofocus mirror may be loose, gently move the main mirror up after removing the lens to have a look. If this is the case the camera needs to be repaired

Have you choose a correct "Focusing Point" by pressing the right outmost button on the rear of the body, just above the CF card compartment door?

Clean the contacts on the camera body (and the lens, too) where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

If it is a dark scene and the camera cannot detected edges well the autofocus will either move around a lot or simply will not focus and thus wont expose. You will just have to manually focus or use the flash

Will a quantaray 28-105 1:3.8-5.4 Zoom lens Autofocus from a 35mm rebel ti fit on Canon EOS Digital Rebel 6.3 MP 300D?


The 35mm Rebel Ti and the Rebel 300D use the same lens mounting protocol. All Canon cameras designated 'EOS' use the autofocus EF lenses. If your Quantaray lens worked on the Rebel Ti, it will fit and should work on the Rebel 300D.

Autofocus on my Canon 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 EF IS fails


Hello. First, check the contacts on the lens mount--you're looking for bent pins, oxidized(odd-colored) metal, damaged contact points, etc. The camera must communicate reliably with the internal circuitry of the lens unit. If there is any dirt, moisture, intermittent contact going on, the sensitive focusing electronics will be effectively blinded. If all is fine with the contacts, then the problem lies with the circuits in the lens that provide critical focusing data to the camera. Movement of certain parts causes electrical changes to occur at a calibrated rate--if the camera loses connection, it can't tell if the lens is actually adjusting. You'll have to send the lens in for repair--http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=SupportIndexAct. This address should get you started.--Hope I helped!---Rick

Canon Rebel Xti Wont autofocus


I dropped my camera and thought the autofocus broke. It turn out that it swithed from autofocus to manual focus. There's a switch on the lens. Check if that's your problem too.

Canon 400d constant backfocus


Backfocus problems will be magnified when using wide aperture lens with shallow depth of field, nice lens btw. Camera's adjustments for manual and autofocus are inside mirror cage behind mirror, and you dont want to risk getting dust on sensor or damaging sensor. Qualified camera repair shop or sending to canon for adjustment would be my suggestion.

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 :/

My Canon digital rebel will not autofocus correctly. My camera has 7 points autofocus, but it will only autofocus on the far right point. All other points are not used. I have had the camera for 14 months...


I had this problem awhile ago - you must have accidently adjusted the focal area - it is sooooo easy to do without realising it. Here is what I was told:
**************************

Most likely, you have changed the AF point, which only takes effect in the creative modes (Manual, Av, Tv, P, etc)

There should be a button on your camera that has a grid like pattern above it, like
-
- - - - -
-

or so. press that, look through the viewfinder, and move the shutter or rear wheel, you should see the different AF points like up in red, and as you turn different ones will light up, and eventually all of them. also, you can look on the screen on top (or back, if its a rebel) and it will show you which ones are selected while in that mode, instead of looking through the viewfinder.
