The autofocus willnot lock in focus: the camera searches, then stops with the green "not infocus" light glowing. I checked the "af" on the lens.

Try removing the camera lens and VERY CAREFULLY raise the mirror in the camera. There is another small mirror behind the main mirror that relects the light for the autofocus to work. If the spring on that small mirror is broken (common problem) it can cause the symptom you are experiencing.

You can also check it by aiming the camera at an object above your head with the camera pointed up since that will hold the little mirror in place by gravity. If it works pointed up the spring is the problem.

You can get the spring from Canon. The part number is CS2-6367-000. Canon's parts dept phone number is 1-732-521-7230.

Turn the mode dial to the green rectangle for automatic exposure. Set the autofocus switch on the lens to AF for automatic focus.

My pics on my Canon rebel eos looked clear on my camera but when downloaded to the computer they are bluury. Lanscape photos are fine but wildlife is blurred.


First of all this is a digital camera, not a 35mm film camera, but it is the same fix... You need to use a faster shutter speed for your wildlife pictures. Or use a tripod, or both. The small screen on the camera is not big enough to tell if a photo is really sharp. Also check the way you have your autofocus set up, or focus manually to test a few closer shots. It may be that the auto focus is set to focus on a part of the picture which is not the bit you are interested in. There should be some indicators in the viewfinder to tell you where in the frame the camera is picking out to auto focus onto. Blurry can only be either out of focus or shake. (It could be both of course!)

When I press the shutter half-way, it is my understanding I should see a red light in the window telling me it is focused....there's no light. Also, my BEEP is turned ON, but it never beeps??? Canon...


The Canon Rebel XS is a digital camera not film. Most of your problems may stem back to not having a media card installed. Here is a great link for the Canon EOS Rebel XS showing important functions http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/canon/eos_rebel_xs-review/ If you have a media card installed and it has been formatted to the camera then the red light you mention will only flicker for an instant on your focus point, you got to be pretty quick to see it. The in focus light you want to see is a small green dot in the lower right corner of the viewfinder. This "green dot" needs to be solidly lit not flickering. When the camera has achieved focus the "beep" should sound, I suspect you haven't reached focus yet. Not focusing could be as simple as having the lens switch set to manual focus or the camera set to manual focus.

Brand new Canon EOS Rebel XS. Suddenly, image in the view finder is blurry. Auto focus seems to be working, and pictures are coming out fine. But sometimes, the autofocus focuses on the wrong thing, and so...


Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.

My cannon eos rebel x 35mm wont take pictures on auto focus acts like the timing is off. Works fine on manual focus. Have already tried different lenses, batteries, and cleaning.


Your AF module needs to be replaced. Or maybe the mirror part that bounces light to the AF module.

Another possible issue is light. The AF sensors need a certain amount to light to be able to see if its in focus. Some lenses don't allow that much light to pass, so the sensors can't focus the lens. Try a lens that passes more light, like the 50mm f/1.8 or point your lens at a very bright scene.

If increasing the light level doesn't solve it, it needs repair. You might check Ebay for a "parts" Rebel to have spare parts for your good one.

On AF but won't allow me to take the picture.. In M mode it takes a the picture


It could be a couple things.
Camera software is set to Focus priority. If it can't confirm focus, shuttter is locked. If you can reset that to release priority, it will take pix ok.
Otherwise,,,Send to repair guy.
Why can't confirm AF?
something physically outa place - dropped?
someting not talking to AF module? dirty contacts
dead IC
AF module died...needs replaced
The repair guy should clean, re-lube, and adjust,also.
