SOURCE: I dropped my 70-200 2.8 canon IS lens. The lens

Best option for repair is CanonUSA repair service (presuming your are in USA). Your warranty will have their contact info, or you can get if from their web site. Though still under warranty, since it was dropped, I'd guess they would charge for the repair (but might be kind enough to give you a break on costs). Another possibility is a local Canon authorized repair shop, but what, and the extent, of damage may preclude anyone other than Canon's repair location from attempting any repair. Dropping it is a bummer, huh?!

SOURCE: canon EF 50mm 2.5 macro autofocus broken. buy new

I thought mine was broken but i cleaned off the copper tips on the bottom with a clean eraser very gently, and afterwards i put on the lens and it worked. I would give that a try if you have not already

Canon Rebel XSi won't autofocus and makes grinding sound

There is nothing that auto-focuses except the circuit in the body - all the motors, gears etc. are in the lenses. If this is a 18-55 lens then more than likely the long shaft gear has broken teeth - a very common problem.

Autofocus has failed on the CAnon EOS 40D. I can power the camera up with lens in manual but as soon as I go to autofocus it becomes unresponsive. The viewfinder goes black. Swapped batteries and lenses....

It's not the Autofocus, there's no 'non-engineer' fix. Lens and slider have failed, it's basically broken inside and I suspect it was the original fault. It's about £160-200 outside of warranty to fix via a canon authorised repair agent such as www.camera-repair.co.uk in Colchester. Send it back, get your money back.

New Camera

Get the Canon EF 70-300mm IS USM about $500 and EFS 17-85mm IS USM about $300. The 75-300 all of them I would not use them 4 a body cap. Camera is fine or step up to XSI.

Zoom ring on 18-55 mm lens is locked/stuck

Are you sure it's the zoom ring that's stuck, and not the focus ring? The focus ring doesn't move when the camera is in autofocus.
If it's indeed the zoom ring that's stuck, you can spend more money than the lens is worth in repairs, or buy a replacement (circa 35 dollars on ebay) for dreadfully cheap. Good luck.

Autofocus is stuck on Quantaray 28-200mm F3.8-5.6

NEVER open it up. You will destroy the dust seals. Have Canon repair it.
