The lint you are seeing is probably up inside the viewfinder on top of the focusing screen. It may be obnoxious, but it won't affect the pictures.

The only way to clean it out is to drop the focusing screen down and remove it and clean out the dust and lint.

It is a fairly delicate job, but if you are careful and have a pair of nice tweezers to drop the screen down with, you might be able to do it. Otherwise, it shouldn't cost too much to have your local camera repair shop do it for you.

Blower motor runs but not much air at vents


If the blower motor works on all speeds, the possible cause could be lint covering the evaperator core like a lint filter on a clothes drier.If possible remove blower motor and using a mirror look inside to verifiy that this is the case.Sometimes you can duct tape a piece of heater hose to your shop vac and clean off the evaperator core. An air hose and blow tip can also help remove the lint.

Is it possible to clean the mirror on an SLR camera, specificlly a Cannon EOS Rebel G. it looks like it has a film or dirt or possibly smoke residue on it.


It can be cleaned but you must be careful and gentle. The surface is silver and is easily damaged.

1. Blow any dust off with canned air for cameras.
2. Wet, do not soak, a foam swab with camera lens cleaner.
3. Gently wipe mirror from side to side.
4. Replace swab when dirty.
5. Repeat as necessary.
6. Gently dry with dry swab.

Looks like I have a couple of flys on the inside of the screen


Dont even think of removing the screen.....virtually impossible to reinstall. If you must clean...clean the picture tubes. Blow the dust off the lenses with air spray, then spray a lint free cloth with a lcd, plasma cleaner. Try not to use windex. [leaves a film on plastic lens] . Now pay close attention because the mirror you try to clean is a reflective plastic sheet that can tear easily. Lightly brush a new feather duster on this. Now you can only do this by removing the lower back cover [a hard cardboard material] and dislocate your elbo to clean . You can clean the inside of screen with the feather duster, donot use a cleaner inside the screen or mirror. Relocate the old elbo and replce the lower back cover.

Cleaned inside of viewfinder, now AF focus lights gone


Then you learn, when everything works fine, dont mess with it! Have a look at the gold pins that rely the body to the lens. Also check that your lens manual switch focus is engaged... Try a friend lens to see if its your cam or the lens...

Canon Rebel XT Does NOT Take Pictures (AF & Exposure seem OK)


I have the SAME problem. I wrote to Canon and they told me to shut off the camera, take the battery out and wait 20 MINUTES! I can't WAIT that long, especially when I'm WORKING! I rely on this camera to work! Its annoying! Then they said if that doesn't work, to SEND IT IN and if its under warranty, they'll fix it for free.. if its NOT, then I have to pay for it. BUt the "technical team" will make the decision.

SPOTS on pictures taken by my Canon EOS Rebel XTi


Cleaning the lens and CMOS (Canon uses CMOS instead of CCD sensors) would be the first thing I would do. Before an expensive cleaning (usually at least $60) try getting a blower and blowing off the lens and sensor (find the sensor cleaning thing in the yellow section of the cameras menu, select it, the mirror will lock up, take off the lens, blow on the sensor with the blower)
For the lens, besides the blower, use a microfiber cloth on it.

If the problem persists, almost any camera store will clean cameras. Try Ritz cameras, here is a list of their stores in NY city.

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.
