Only Canon or their service rep can fix your camera. The failure may be in the lens unit itself, or on the processor board inside of the camera. The fix is done by board or module replacement. After the parts replacement the tech will do the complete setup and calibration of the camera.

This type of repair may be a little expensive. Ask for an estimate first.

Hi,

Not Sure what's going on with my cam!


See if there is a little key on the shots that wont download. if there is the they have been protected and may be unlocked for transfer in you camera menu. as for you focus problem make sure you are pressing the shutter down halfway to lock the focus on your subject otherwise it will focus on any part of the picture.

Lens won't autofocus


Check that the electrical contacts on the lens and camera body are clean, and that the lens is mounted fully and correctly to the camera, i.e. no damage or dirt in the mounts. If these are all okay, it is looking like an internal problem with the lens's focus motor, or possibly something jammed in the lens.

If possible, try the lens on another camera body. Alternatively, you could switch the camera to a manual focus mode (or a mode that doesn't require focus confirmation) and see if you can take a picture.

This pretty much rules out what you can do for yourself I'm afraid. If you still have no luck, you will probably need to take it to a camera store for inspection / repair.

(Incidentally, the R09 is not actually an error message. It means that you have 9 shot capacity in the camera buffer before it will fill up. It sounds as if the camera is set to an auto-focus mode that requires focus confirmation before the shutter will fire which is why you're seeing the message.)

Focus error depriving me of fun


I have posted this on several web sites. The fix is easy for this camera. Just push in on the lens at the same time you turn it off. Resets the lens timing to focus. All done!
