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.

Will not take pictures


Does your lens try to focus or it doesn't try at all? You will have to understand that for the camera to autofocus successfully, theere should be adequate light and contrast. That means, autofocus often fail to focus even colored walls or objects under dim light. If you tried all this in daylight, outdoors, then the autofocus sensor is faulty. Please reply with details of how you tried the af.

I can not get my canon eos rebel k2 focus on a


Autofocus is activated by pressing the shutter button halfway, be shure to have a EF lens in the camera, otherwise it won't make autofocus, put camera on full auto mode or "sports mode" (the running guy) and the focus settings on redictive AI Servo AF: Continuously tracks subject movement and achieves focus before the exposure starts.

Camera will not focus and on AF it flashes green dot with a 9


the flashing green dot is caused by the camera not able to focus, and is typically from the following:

1. not enough light - if you are in Aperture Priority, try increasing the ISO
2. low contrast subjects - the camera can't find a good point to focus on
3. overlapping near/far objects - again, the camera can't decide which one to focus on
4. Repetitive patterns

You can go into manual focus, or, auto focus on something the same distance away and lock the focus and shoot.

Auto focus suddenly stopped working


This may not be the same as your issue, but our AF stopped working as well. I tried all the recommended fixes - removing the card and battery, recharging the latter, removing the lens and cleaning the contacts, etc. None of those things worked. However, I then switched to MF, requiring me to turn the barrel, and I realized it was stuck and just needed a little force to get unstuck. Might have been the humidity. Anyway, our problem was solved - AF was back to normal after that.

My Canon digital rebel will not autofocus correctly. My camera has 7 points autofocus, but it will only autofocus on the far right point. All other points are not used. I have had the camera for 14 months...


I had this problem awhile ago - you must have accidently adjusted the focal area - it is sooooo easy to do without realising it. Here is what I was told:
**************************

Most likely, you have changed the AF point, which only takes effect in the creative modes (Manual, Av, Tv, P, etc)

There should be a button on your camera that has a grid like pattern above it, like
-
- - - - -
-

or so. press that, look through the viewfinder, and move the shutter or rear wheel, you should see the different AF points like up in red, and as you turn different ones will light up, and eventually all of them. also, you can look on the screen on top (or back, if its a rebel) and it will show you which ones are selected while in that mode, instead of looking through the viewfinder.
