Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Error code 001 with canon 450d


Seems a lot of people are having the same problem. Take the lens off the camera and clean the little gold contacts (metal squares) on both the lens and the body with isopropyl alcohol or pre-moistened len wipes.

My Canon EOS Rebel XS only takes pictures indoors (ERR. 01)


You didn't say which shooting mode you're using, but I'd bet you're in Manual mode and have dialed in a completely wrong aperture/shutter speed combination for bright lighting conditions. For example, 1/60th of a second and f2.8 in bright sunlight would be "burning out" your image, so the camera may be giving you an error message. Try using AUTO or PROG setting and see if the problem persists. If it does, try a different lens. You may have an incompatible mount, or one of the contacts may be damaged. If all else fails, try your lens on another Canon camera.

When i on my Canon EOS 450D camera it says error 99 turn off and on the camera or re install the battery how can fix this problem


The error 99 code has different sources, to identify it do this:

Remove the Lens, and try shooting at various speed high (1/1000 or more) then at more normal ones 1/15, 1/50 etc.
If you see the error 99 then contact canon this is a problem wit the camera.
In this case contact Canon directly.

If you still don' have the error message, then put back the lens and try shooting at different apertures (for a lens the error 99 correspond with an aperture problem)
try every aperture. If the problem appears then, clean the lens contacts both on the camera and on the lens.

If the problem is still there, contact the lens brand, you certainly have a blocked or sticky aperture.

Hope this helps.

Hello,

I had a similar focus problem with a Tamron 70-300 for canon. What can i tell you is that if you o not have experience in this domain you should NOT disassemble the lens because you will have a very hard time to put it back together. Also, it's very hard to allign all the glass lens inside and you may end up in making it worse.
As I see this, you have 2 options:
Either you learn using the camera in Manual Focus mode, which is not a bad idea, in time you cn become faster than the AF :)
or
you can try to find a shop that sells cameras, they may direct you to a service, it does not have to be canon but must be a person with a technical background in cameras and such.

This is a digital camera and I suspect it's not the mirror that's showing dirt it's the sensor. If you are seeing small bits of dirt on your pictures then it's dirt on the sensor. I would suggest having it cleaned at a camera store or repair facility if you are not comfortable with doing it yourself. Cleaned improperly can damage the sensor and renter the camera pretty well useless. The dirt inside the Tamron lens I would also suggest cleaning and if you are getting an error message you may as well send the camera in for a complete cleaning. There are kits on the marked to clean the sensors but again if you are not confident that you can do this then sent it to people that can and do it on a regular bases.

It is asking you to clean the electronic points on the lens that come into contact with the camera body when the two are fitted together, in order to power the lens functions.

If other lens work ok, try giving the lens electronic contact point on the mounting plate a light rub with a dry cotton-bud, may be a fingerprint .
