Question about Canon EOS 30D Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Canon 30 D

My EOS 30D has recently become faulty. In all modes except manual the flash goes off during daylight conditions and the camera records a blank/white screen image. In manual everything seems OK; any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong or is it an internal fault? Thanks to all who assist. Regards Tim

    Old marine thanks for the suggestions. Unfortunately resetting the camera to the default settings did not cure the problem. I had actually tried it earlier to no avail, but did so again as you advised; again it still sets off the flash (except when in manual). Maybe your other idea to get it serviced is more appropriate, but as the camera is only just over one yera old and purely used for recreation purposes, I am a little surprised it needs it so soon. But I think that is my next port of call! Cheers 635pff

Sounds like it needs service. You can try resetting the camera to its factory default settings and see if that does anything. On the Setup Menu (wrench and hammer symbol), go to Clear settings, then Clear all camera settings, and select OK. This is covered on page 37 of the manual.

If this is a EOS 30D, fist I would try is a fresh battery. If that does not help, then it may well be the camera as designed. If it had been brighter now less bright, call Canon for service options:

When you disconnected the camera, did you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen or did you just yank out the cord?

30D locks up and won't take pictures.


are you taking photos of still or moving subjects? One shot is suitable for still subjects, someone sitting down or still life shots. The camera will balk at you if you are constantly panning or have moving items in the fiewfinder field of the focus points and it is set in one-shot mode.
try changing to AI Servo and see if the problem continues.

Be aware that the built in flash does not pop up automatically in all picture modes. Try it when in the different modes (on the mode dial) and see what I mean. Does it popo up when manually opened ?, (small button on front left hand side of the viewing pentaprism/flash housing.)

Change from auto focus to manual focus or focus using only one focal square and change the setting to One Shot. You may need to shoot in Manual (M) mode though. Any of the "auto" modes will not let you.
