I have a Sigma 17-70 and was using it with a Canon Digital Rebel XTi. I was using it to shoot and it was working fine, and all of a sudden it completely locked up. I have no idea what happened. It won't zoom completely in or out, it's stuck somewhere in the middle. The lens lock is not on.

What kind of error? Err 99?
You mention DS 126151, that's the model number. This camera is mostly know as Canon EOS Rebel XTi? Also known as the EOS 400D or EOS Kiss Digital X.
If you are getting a Err 99 while shooting, try any other lens that will fit on your Canon. In most cases the aperture will become defect in these lenses. Not worth repairing if you ask me. One thing you could do, is shoot only at its maximum aperture. So that'll be F4.0 at 70mm and F5.6 at 300mm. That might work, but that might not be suitable in every situation.
There is a minimal focusing distance for all lenses. If you move closer to the subject than that distance then the camera won't focus on it. Check you lens manual for minimal focusing distance. It is 11 inches for Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM, for example.
if the lens is the older type with a macro switch which has 2 screws
holding it on to the lens it will not work.If it a super 70-300 you can
put the camer on AV set iris to F22 if you have a stopdown button
see if the lens stops down it ok if noe it will need a rechip or a new
Hey kgconstruct, The lens description that your posting is categorized under is a 75-300 f/4-506 DL lens for Nikon AI. If this is correct then no this lens won't work on a Canon camera. I am assuming this isn't correct and the lens you have is for a Canon camera, and if this is true this lens should work on the XTI. If you’re thinking of buying this lens I would go to a local camera store that carries this Sigma lens and try it out first to make sure you like it. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead.

The EOS Digital Rebel, EOS Digital Rebel XT and EOS Digital Rebel XTi do not support stamping the date and time on the image.
It is not possible to record the date and time as part of the image at
the time the picture is taken. However, the date and time is captured
in the EXIF information of the image at the point of capture. It is
possible to print the image with the date and time via printing
software. Please see the documentation for the software package that
you use for printing images for the proper procedure.
