Question about Canon EOS Rebel T2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera

2 Answers

Canon EOS Rebel T2 300X Won't Autofocus or Take Picture. I can manually focus and take a picture, but when autofocus is on, it focuses for a second and then goes out of focus and won't let me snap a photo. Anyone hear of this before?

    I have a Rebel XS, and it is doing the same thing, it just stopped auto focusing in the middle of a shoot, it does it on all of my lens. It acts like it is going to focus but when you go to snap the picture, it goes back out of focus. I can shoot in manual focus fine.

This may be a problem with the autofocus itself, try the following:

  • If you have a different lens, see if the autofocus works with the other lens. If it does, there may be something wrong with your lens.
  • Clean the contacts (the little metal things between the lens and the camera) with a slightly moist, lint-free cloth
  • Try replacing the battery in the camera
If none of this helps, you may have to take your camera to a qualified repair person to get them to have a look at it.

Good luck!

To autofocus the sensor needs a fair amount of contrast (light and dark eges) to operate. If you're trying to take a photo in a dim room of a dark colored subject for instance the focus won't lock and the camera won't take the picture. Try switching your lens to manual focus and shoot that way.

Will not take pictures


Does your lens try to focus or it doesn't try at all? You will have to understand that for the camera to autofocus successfully, theere should be adequate light and contrast. That means, autofocus often fail to focus even colored walls or objects under dim light. If you tried all this in daylight, outdoors, then the autofocus sensor is faulty. Please reply with details of how you tried the af.

Auto focus problem


If you set the camera on "manual", it assumes you focused manually and allows you to press the shutter without having to stop half-way. Check your settings.

Autofocus is activated by pressing the shutter button halfway, be shure to have a EF lens in the camera, otherwise it won't make autofocus, put camera on full auto mode or "sports mode" (the running guy) and the focus settings on redictive AI Servo AF: Continuously tracks subject movement and achieves focus before the exposure starts.

You have your own answer - the lens is damaged, probably beyond economic repair.

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.
