I guess it could be several things; perhaps the color temperature of your lights is the culprit. At any rate, it shouldn't be too difficult to correct - here are two suggestions: 1) Shoot in RAW mode so that you can fine-tune color balance after the fact and don't have to get it right in-camera. 2) Shoot a black/white/grey card in the same lighting as your subject. (all three "colors" on the same card) You can then use the eyedropper tool in either curves or levels to set the black and white points, and the grey eyedropper tool (when clicked on the grey in your shot) should get rid of any color cast, magenta or otherwise. Good luck!
Cleaning my sensor
I have tried cleaning my 20D a few times. It is easy to do and the result is satisfactory.
For routine cleaning, I just use a blower to blow off any dust on the sensor. Remember to turn the camera so that the sensor is facing down. In this way the dust once blow away will not fall onto the sensor again.
For dirt that cannot be blown away, I use the Sensor Swab from Photographic Solution.
They are very effective and easy to use but expensive (still much cheaper than going to Canon for service). Just remember not to add too much cleaning solution to avoid sneaking.
My 10d won't focus
At 700 images/week for 52 weeks, you're just about at the point where the shutter could fail pretty soon. I don't think that would affect AF though, and AF doesn't "wear out" with use (other than experiencing the random failures that all electronics do).
Manual white balance
Click the AF-WB button and then with the wheel in the back of the camera select either K or any of the other settings. If set to K then you must go to your Menu (click menu button on back) then go to Color temp. and select your Kelvin tempature.
Hope that helps....
I shoot with a 10D and at first I thought I might have a problem. Now I think I just wasn't using it correctly. I read a lot of posts on dpreview about how to use the autofocus correctly and that has helped me a lot.
7d - problem with shots remaining
Maximum for counter is 999. Counter is showing 999 because you have space available for more than 999 shots. If you've got a very large memory card it may tke quite some time to get below 999.

Top edge of my photo is a black diagonal shadow
Sounds like it could be vignetting from either a lens hood or an accessory. Are you seeing this in all photos or flash only? If flash, sometimes a wide shot with a lens hood on will block the flash output and cause the described shadow line.

Why is there nothing showing in my lcd after I turn camera on?
This is an indication that the LCD is not functioning. You haven't indicated the make and model of your camera but if it has a view finder, try taking some picture and view them in a computer. No view-finder? Just point and shoot some subjects and view then from a computer.
Are the pictures OK? If they are than you might want to maintain that style while looking for replacement parts of service tech.

I am unable to take photos using my EFS 18-55 lens
When you have another lens, that still works on the same camera, you can assume it is something with the 18-55. Please check carefully if all contacts are clean and shiny. Also check if not one has a (even tiny) bent to dent.
You can clean contacts with a dry cloth, or cotton swab. Never use anything sharp in or lost by a camera.
If you can't fine anything obvious wrong with the contacts, I think you should visit a Canon certified service centre.
Came just in my mind. If the camera does not give any error, and you still can shoot (blurred) pictures, check if the AF switch is not on manual.

How do I install the ds 126071 0n my laptop?
Although the manual does not show how to connect to a computer, the system map shows how to use a mini USB cable to connect the camera to a PC. But before the camera will communicate with any PC or Laptop, it needs software.
From the Canon USA website you still can download the Zoombrowser EX software for free. It used to be the EOS Digital solution disk and the ArcSoft PhotoStudio Disk.
Before connecting the camera, install the software. Then when software (and driver) are installed, when connecting the camera, the software will start up and ask what to do. Like import the pictures to the computer.

Won't down load photos
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com
