Canon EOS-3000N... | Answered on Jan 14, 2018

Try getting someone to loan you a good working battery to test if that's the problem. It's probably run out of its service life.

is the autofocus button on the lens set on AF position.
If it is then remove the lens once and reinstall and then try.

It is unusable because it is 'broken'. You've not specified the make and model, but if it was a cheap one (under £500) just replace it.

I'd check with Canon. They will probably want you to send it back . . . be sure the price of the repair is going to be considerably less than a new (refurbished) camera.

You didn't say which shooting mode you're using, but I'd bet you're in Manual mode and have dialed in a completely wrong aperture/shutter speed combination for bright lighting conditions. For example, 1/60th of a second and f2.8 in bright sunlight would be "burning out" your image, so the camera may be giving you an error message. Try using AUTO or PROG setting and see if the problem persists. If it does, try a different lens. You may have an incompatible mount, or one of the contacts may be damaged. If all else fails, try your lens on another Canon camera.

You probably have a dead cell in your replacement battery. Camera batteries have a limited number of charge cycles, and this is not a rare issue with "aged" batteries. Also, when you get a new battery, buy a genuine Canon replacement and not one of the el-cheapo Chinese copies available online. In camera batteries, you really do get the quality and performance you pay for!

As it is a Sunpak tripod, contact the mfr or importer, or look on eBay. Fixya does not supply spares for any equipment.

Rewind the film and try 'dry-firing' the camera, checking to see if the lens is working properly. May be a bad contact between the lens and the body, may just the the film has loaded slightly on the huh.

Canon EOS Rebel... | Answered on Sep 26, 2017

You should download a manual.

Specs say it is an autofocus and autoexposure camera with limited manual input required.

Canon... | Answered on Sep 12, 2017

Junk it. If not working properly with new batteries, reset, etc. then something is definitely wrong with unit and it is simply not cost effective to repair.

Canon EOS-3 35mm... | Answered on Sep 11, 2017

My crystal ball tells me that you are referring to you vintage 1939 Pentax SLR camera! Is that correct?

Canon EOS Rebel... | Answered on May 12, 2017

Get it serviced to find out if it is repairable or only insert battery to use then remove when not in use

Canon EOS Rebel... | Answered on May 10, 2017

You can use any 35mm film, also known as 135. You have a wide choice of color print or color slide film. You also have a wide choice of black-and-white or infrafred film as well.
