Switch off, remove batt, then replace the bat. You should notice a red LED blink. If that does not blink, you can't do much yourself. Take it in for a proper check by authorized service tech.

Go to Image>Image Size, make sure there is no tick in "Resample Image" and change the resolution from 72 to 300 pixels per inch.

What program are you using to make the conversion. It probably has the wrong white balance selected.

Look at the memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

I had the Error 01 message on my 400D
I changed the support battery ( CR 2016 3 V) which is placed inside the main battery compartment.
This did the trick.

The camera is a sick puppy and in need or repair/replacement. Check with Canon re repair cost and decide what to do.
There is nothing you can do to remedy the situation.

We need to rule some things out. Do the USB cables you're trying to use work on other "known to be good" devices? Do not reuse any cable(s) that doesn't work, even if new. Once you have a cable that has been proven to work, try connecting the camera to the USB port on the computer again. Make sure the camera power is OFF while connecting to the computer. Only after connecting should you turn camera power ON again. You can review the whole process starting on page 147 of the manual.

If it doesn't work, it is possible that the ports you're trying to use is either 1) defective or 2) overloaded. Try connecting to a different USB port on one of the computers. If you don't have another USB port, or if it still doesn't work as expected, remove all the devices connected to the USB ports that are not needed to operate the computer. This will lower the amount of power the computer needs to supply to USB devices (some - but not all - computers will flash a message on the screen if there's too many devices connected). Reconnect the powered off camera and try again after turning back on..

If you're still having a problem, suspicion turns to the camera's USB port. Resolving a problem within the camera will likely be the most expensive fix. It took considerable restraint, but I didn't even mention the other solution ;-)

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Try cleaning the contacts on the lens mount and the lenses using an eraser. Do make sure that any dust falls outside and not into the body.

It is a problem with them that if you fit a flash to the hotshoe that after a while the tabs under the hotshoe rails don't pop back up so you have to get a micro bladed screwdriver and GENTLY prize them up until they contact the rail then try the popup button again

Two possible reasons ... A: the ribbon cable which runs from the rear mount contacts to the mid barrel has either cracked or broken (this eventually happens with continued zooming at some point in its lifetime) B: the focussing gear cog has small particle such as sand or broken plastic debris which prevents auto from fixing to focus point.
Solution is to try using a blower from rear at full extension to see if it is debris ...or inspect ribbon cable.these are readily available on eBay as replacement spares.

If the problem is water in your camera a good way to remove it is to place the camera into a pack of rice. The rice will absorb the water.

This comes down to a couple basic things: careful planned and execution of your plan.

  1. Figure out what you what you photo and what the best way to capture the event will be. You're going to want to use a tripod to keep the camera in the same position for the duration of the event.
  2. Figure out how often you need the camera to take a photo. If the event is short like 1 minute, you're going to want to take more photos more frequently than if the event is one hour long.
  3. Position the camera and start taking photos. There is no magic "time lapse" setting on cameras so you're going to have to stick around and press the shutter based on the schedule you worked out.
  4. Grab your favorite movie editing program and edit them all together. Play around with how long you show each photo to control the speed of the time lapse effect.
  5. Export and enjoy!

There is a "close focus" limit, depending on your lens. The standard "kit lens" won't focus closer than about 2 feet away. Check that the switch on the lens is set to "AF" not "MF" "MF" means, "manual focus".
When you lightly press the shutter button, the viewfinder should blink with little dots/squares indicating what it focused on, and beep. If it doesn't, and you are set for "AF", then your camera needs repair.
