Question about Canon EOS 550D Rebel T2i Digital Camera
Assuming it is not a new camera and you do not have it set to manual mode and you know how to operate it appropriately - it could be a broken lens, dirty contacts, frozen firmware, or broken camera. First try turning your camera off - wait at least 15 seconds - then try a different lens. If the camera works with a different lens - then it is your lens. If you do not have a different lens, using a pencil eraser, clean the brass (gold color) contacts that can be found on the lens and camera where they connect. Make sure you do not get any eraser particles in the camera or you will have more problems. Once done turn your camera on. If it works it was dirty contacts. If it still does not work it could just be frozen firmware. Turn the camera off and remove the battery. Then replace the battery and turn the camera on. Remove the batter will get the camera to "reset." If it still does not try uploading the firmware again - preferable with an update if available. If it still does not work it is with the camera - sorry.
