Canon ds6041 digital rebel problem with AF 70-33 mm

Camera is working fine with 18-55 mm lens, but won't take picture in AF mode with the AF 70-33 lens. Flash does multiple flashes and then there is a green dot that flashes in the view finder. Absolutely won't take the shot. Have turned the focus to M and it took but picture is very dark. Seems like the issue might be communication between my flash (and its settings?)... Any ideas on settings that should be tweaked or is there a way to reset to factory settings. Lens has been working fine up until today (except an occasional ERR 99 when I've zoomed way in on something. I've just turn camera off and pulled back a bit and then it'll work fine the next time.

Try cleaning the contacts on the lens and camera body where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

    You can reset the camera by going into the menu and finding "reset" and following the on-screen instructions. I'm not sure that will help but try it anyway. If your camera work fine with one lens but not with the other, the lens is the thing to suspect.

This is a fix for the 1/5th of picture, no picture error.
It might be that when your aperture comes down, then goes back up while snapping a shot, the mirror stays down. Just flip the aperture up by hand, then just touch the mirror and make it snap back to the aperture.

Why won't my Rebel T3 take pictures in the AF mode?


First Try a different lens on the Camera to see if its the body or the lens, Most of the time its the lens, If its the lens then it has to be repaired by a repair shop, Cost to repair is $68.00, Body: Check in the menu settings under Display reset it there to the length of time you want it to go on or off.

My canon ds6041 displays err 99 when i try to capture light aur object in sun light.What should i do i'm using 70-21-mm lense


Usually this is cased by shutter failure or failure of the aperture unit in the lens. Try another lens and see if you get the same error message - that will tell you if the problem is in the camera body or lens

How to get software that downloads data from a canon digital camera


You don't need any special software.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or, despite what I said first, you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

My cannon rebel eos DS6041 displays error 99 when


'Error 99' indicates some problem with the AF contacts. This is a common error in Canon lenses. It could indicate a very simple problem like dirty contacts or a much serious one like the breakage of USM cable.
As a first step, you can try cleaning the lens and body contacts (the metal contacts between the lens and body) using a pencil eraser. Be careful to hold the body facing down so that no dust falls inside. After cleaning both the lens and the body contacts, re-attach the lens and try shooting. If the AF does not work still, you need to take the lens to an authorized service center.

My canon rebel XSi will not auto focus


Actually what I found to solve the problem was to first set the lens in "MF" and practice taking a picture manually to see if that would work. When I did this, I discovered that the fine tuning portion of the lens was somehow stuck mechanically. I heard a loud click as I turned it. That was all it took to fix the focusing mechanism on the lens. Then I set to "AF" and Voila, the camera worked just fine.

No AF point display indicator in Creative Zone modes.


In creative mode I would imagine that you are required to choose the focus point. Try the arrow buttons.

I bought digital Canon EOS Rebel XT two years ago, and I have really big problem with AF. I got one half of the pictures fuzzy. Sometimes the green light is on, I took the picture and it is fuzzy. Next...


Is the lens on AF mode?

Have you tried more than one lens to determine whether it's the lens or the camera itself?

You may want to have lens calibrated. Send in for service?
