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

Eos 5D lcd screen stays black when power is turned on. It will show menu and review photos taken but otherwise remains black so it will not show what is in front of the lens.


Sounds like the shutter control is not active. If closed, the shutter will not allow light to enter and thus you have a black receptor. Take to a camera shop for testing.

Error code 80 + lock up functions


Still, when this error comes back, you should contact Canon.
On of the options hinting, you should use Canon lenses. So perhaps one of the contacts is a bit dirty?
Try cleaning all contacts in your camera, involved with lens and battery connection. Sometimes changing a lens can have a cleaning effect to. Most of the time not forever.

When I switch on it automatically keeps taking images and won't stop.


First reaction is always take out the battery.
Check if the shutter release button is not stuck in a down position. Press and here of her is a little click. After you are sure the shutter release button is not stuck, place the battery and try again. If it starts all over again taking pictures, and you are sure you don't have a ir remote control near bye, then you should contact the nearest Canon service centre.

My canon C3170i shows error E000001-0010


Product : imageRUNNER 5070 / 5570 / 6570 Title : Fuser noise and intermittent E001 code Error
The upper fuser roller section makes a noise and intermittently error code E001 occurs Workaround : In this case, the UFR Shutter inside the upper fuser roller was installed reversed (180 degrees out of postion). Installing the UFR Shutter in the proper orientation corrected the problem. Note: the UFR shutter installed in the reversed position will cause a noise and block the Main Thermistor when the shutter should block the Sub Thermistor. In turn, the shutter will block the Sub Thermistor when the shutter should block the Main thermistor. This will cause improper temperature for the Upper Fuser roller and cause the error code. suggested to go in service mode and reset the error, and see if it will solve the problem. If the problem presist, a code will appear and that will be the one we should work on. So we did clear the error, and the machine is functioning.
Entering service mode: press Additional Function > press 2 & 8 at the same time > press Additional Function again Clearing the Error: press Copier > press Functions > press clear > press Err > press Ok. Restarting the Machine:Power off then On.

My 5d mark 11 camera screen appears error20 and it wont remove


Hi

Error code 20 on a Canon EOS 5D Mark II indicates there is a hardware problem with either the mirror or the shutter. The only solution is to have it repaired - or if the camera is reasonably new take it back to your supplier and get your money back.

Hope this helps

No images show up on screen after shutter releases


If the images are recorded on the card but not shown immediatly after the shutter release, press MENU, go with the control dial to the recording menu (the one symbolised with a camera) and press AF, the center knob.
On page 1, the third item controls the instant playback, it can be set to OFF, probably your setup, 2, 5 or 10 seconds.

Canon 5d af points...


The AF point will luminate very briefly when you press the shutter half way. To change the AF points press the Zoom in button + and then use the dial on the top to select the point you want. If you are not able to do this go into the Menu setting and under custom funtions go to No. 13 and set this to 0:Normal.

To get the image to focus and remain focused while you recompose set the shooting mode to 'One Shot' do this be pressing the AW-WB button them turning the top dial to get to 'One Shot'. When in 'one shot' press the button half way recompose whith out lifting your finger and squeeze all the way when you have recomposed.

Hope this helps.
