There are few different 18-55 lens from Canon. Which one exactly is yours? And have you try to use AF/MF switch on the lens? Its not sure your lens is full time manual focus

I would have made this a comment but I don't have enough reputation yet, so I'll make it a little more substantive. My Powershot S100 had a similar problem. Beep beep, "Lens Error", shut down. I definitely didn't drop it because I was holding it when it happened. And I didn't get sand in it (as far as I know). It was just a year after I bought it so Canon ...

There's a tiny switch inside the hotshoe (if I remember correctly, on the side below one of the "rails"). If this switch is stuck the camera will think an external flash is mounted.

Just wanted to add to this thread in case my solution can help anyone else. I just had a similar issue, occasionally got an Error 80 when powering up. I would get no display with any of my cards in, but if I took the card out my display would start up again, but obviously I couldn't take any photos. As soon as I put a card in, the display wouldn't work ...

Have you got a formatted memory card in? Some cameras can be set not to shoot unless there is a card in.

There are any number of reasons your camera might be refusing to shoot, but the most common situation with a newb who's gotten their first dSLR is that the camera is in Auto exposure mode, and the lens can't achieve focus--either because the lens is set to manual focus, you're attempting to take a close up image of something that's closer than the lens's ...

Check the custom option "Release While Charging". Check the batteries (camera and/or flash) If the option is not checked, you will not be able to take a picture until the flash is ready. The flash can take some times to charge if the batteries are not fully recharged (both for the internal flash and the external flash). Check the manual at pages 81, 150 ...

The problem was that the images were all too big. I suppose iPhoto can't handle this amount of very high res photos, all around 5616*3744px in my case. I resized all the images to a little higher than 1080p, and it worked well.

If you are confident it's the flash tube that's bad, and are experienced in electronics, you can purchase a flash tube online and replace it. But, you will need the right knowledge, tools, and experience, and this is not as simple as, say, simply unplugging something and replacing it. Desoldering and soldering are involved. Discharging the capacitor in ...

All the testing that can be done has been, the ready light comes on - so it's charging ok, but with no output either through the commander mode or test button the guess at the flash tube is likely to be correct. Replacing a flash tube can be done but is absolutely not a job for the inexperienced. Even when turned off and with the batteries removed some ...

1/90th of a second is the limit of the cameras shutter speed with out electronic assistance. On your shutter dial you should see it listed as "M90", the "M" standing for mechanical. My first course of action would be ensure that you're using a fresh battery, then check the battery connections is free from corrosion. If the problem persists, it might mean ...

On the face of it, this does sound very much like a problem with your camera - you've tested it with two lenses so it's (almost certainly) not the lens, and you've shown it's intermittent by unmounting and mounting the lens. Given that, my recommendations would be: If you've got any friends / co-workers / acquaintances with SLRs, ask them to have a quick ...

No; just changing metering mode will not affect focus on any camera that I'm aware of. If the metering resulted in different aperture or shutter speed, those might have an effect, but everything came out the same regardless of mode, right? (You don't mention shutter speed; I assume that none of them have a significant difference there.) Therefore, as ...
