"Note:" This troubleshooting guide covers only the Canon EOS Rebel T1i . Other Canon Camera models will be covered in separate troubleshooting guides.
Broken/Cracked LCD Screen
My camera has a broken or cracked screen.
If your LCD screen is cracked or broken, you will probably need to replace the entire camera's screen. Visit the repacement guide on Canon EOS Rebel T1i Front Screen Replacement .
My Camera Won't Turn On
I can't get my EOS Rebel T1i to turn on.
If your camera won't turn on, the battery might need to be charged. Try to charge your battery before you tear down your device. For instructions on how to recharge your battery, check the camera's manual: http://www.fhs.cuni.cz/ohsd/stranka/doku...
If you tried to recharge your battery and your camera still won't turn on, it is possible that the battery is not recharging anymore and you will need to get a new one. Visit the replacement guide on Canon EOS Rebel T1i Battery Replacement
My Flash is Not Working
I can shoot pictures, but my flash is not working.
Switch on Flash Mode
Sometimes when you set the camera to auto mode, the flash will not work because the camera assumes there is enough light in the room that the flash is not needed. Try switching on the flash mode. For instructions, visit http://www.fhs.cuni.cz/ohsd/stranka/doku... .
Dirty/Broken Flash Spring
When the flash is on, a spring activates the flash compartment, which makes it pop up. If the spring is dirty or broken, you can take three actions: (1) GENTLY try to open the flash compartment when shooting a picture; (2) Clean the area of the spring: (3) Replace the spring.
All My Pictures Are Turning out Blurry
Whenever I take a picture, they all come out blurry.
Low Shutter Speed
Your shutter speed may be too low. Try switching the camera to a setting with faster shutter speed, like the “sports” shooting setting, or manually increasing the shutter speed. Also, if you are shooting in a darker room, you can increase your ISO setting, which increases the camera’s sensitivity to light and allows it to capture the photos faster. For instructions, visit http://www.fhs.cuni.cz/ohsd/stranka/doku... .
Set Lens to Focus Automatically
If you set your lens to manual mode, the camera will not focus automatically. If you don't manually focus the the lens by rotating it, all your pictures will come out blurry because they are out of focus. You can set your camera to focus automatically by switching your lens from "MF" to "AF." Visit http://www.fhs.cuni.cz/ohsd/stranka/doku... for instructions.
My Camera is not Saving Pictures
My camera will not save any photos that I take.
Memory card is loose
If your pictures don't save, try taking out the memory card of your camera and putting it back in. Try taking a couple of photos to check if it is saving the images now. For instructions visit http://www.fhs.cuni.cz/ohsd/stranka/doku...
My Camara's Eyepiece is Loose
"The eyepiece on my camera is damaged."

My Camera's Grip is Damaged

Nornal Wear and Tear

The best choice to fix a rubber grip is by replacing it because your camera will look better and you it will be more secure in your hands.
