Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
Ive had my camera for about a year and my kids have used it twice. everything works but it no longer takes pictures. im not sure if a button was pushed or a setting changed but i cant figure it out. if anyone else has had this problem please help me or let me know if theres anything i can do. thanks.
"it no longer takes pictures" i'll need a bit more information from you but for now my first suggestion would be to (if the camera still powers up) try testing the shutter by finding the "sensor clean" option in your menu. (i don't have mine in front of me at the moment, but it's usually one of the last options) first remove the lens and select the sensor clean option. if the shutter opens, then the camera body itslef should be fine. the camera will instruct you how to close the shutter after. be extremely careful when the image sensor is exposed like this, make sure not to touch it and be sure to be in a clean area (dust on your sensor will frustrate you beyond belief) now i've had problem after problem with this standard 18-55mm lens. if the lens can't find a focal point, it won't fire. try switching to manual focus and see if it fires. if while focusing manually there is any resistence or grinding, chances are your lens is shot perhaps from being dropped or there is debris preventing auto focus mode to find a focal point. "i've had my camera for about a year" if you bought it new and have had it under a year, it should still be covered by warrenty and canon will take it back and make repairs (they gave me a new lens when this happened to me)
