Question about Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USN Lens

Open Question

Removing lens from barrel

Hi,
i have a pair of EF-S 18-55 usm lenses, one is badly worn and wont focus well (focus barrel is loose), the other has a scratched lens (filter end)

There are two holes that would suggest the ring unscrews, I have machined a tool to fit but it wont budge. I don't want to put too much force on it with it being plastic. Can the ring be removed or do I have to dismantle the lens from the other end?

Thanks

SOURCE: I have a Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L USM Lens

Here is a link to many Canon products in PDF form: Canon Parts Lists


Unfortunately, the only 300mm 2.8 lens listed is the IS version

The procedure is not that complicated, but you need to pay attention to the connections on the circuit board. The mount is removed, and you need to remove the small screws that hold the connector board to the mount ring first.

I cannot do live chat due to I use a Mac, but I will monitor the thread if you have questions,

SOURCE: My camera lense will not focus automatically or manually.

There is no battery in the lens.  The lens receives power from the camera. Whether or not the lens is getting power, though, you should be able to focus manually.
When you say you can't focus manually, do you mean that you can't turn the focusing ring on the lens, or that when you turn the ring the image does not come into focus?
If you decide the lens needs to be repaired, I recommend sending it to Canon.  You can go to their website (canonusa.com if you're in the US), click on support, and follow the links.

The zoom creep is an easy fix for Canon. I really do not recommend trying to tighten it yourself, since that would void your warranty.
It is usually free to tighten the zoom ring.

If your AF motor is hunting then the lens probably needs to be looked at. I wouldn't recommend this as something to do at home so you will need to either find a repair shop if it is out of warranty or return it to Canon if it is in warranty.

Very loose lens 75-300mm canon zoom


If it is loose on the camera mount, try to avoid using it. If it causes your camera mount to distort, then you won't have much luck with any other lenses!
If it is "loose" meaning: it rattles and there's a bit of play in the 'barrel'...yuuup - get used to it. She's an oldie but a goodie.

My lens is really loose when I zoom out , how can I fix it, I have a canon ef 75mm to 300mm


There's a screw located on the barrel of the lens. This may help tighten things up, but don't count on it. Don't try to take it apart unless you know what you're doing. There are a series of sleaves within the barrel which need to match up and you might have to fork out more than the lens is worth just to get it fixed

Conon powershot A450 lens error


Try to use fresh batteries, and push the barrel in and out when it turns on to see if the 'binding' of the focusing gear can go away when you do this manipulation of the barrel.

If the error continues, maybe the camera needs service by Canonusa.com.

I could not, unfortunately, find a reference for an a450 on the website, though. Is that an older model?

Cannot auto focus


It sounds like the circuit board flex has gone bad, It folds back and forth when you zoom the lens, And needs to be replaced by a repair shop and readjusted. Tony
