hey guys!
today's the first day of CNY, and my lens failed on me for the first time.
okay, when the AF is fully turned towards the clockwise direction (when you're facing the camera), it doesn't turn back towards anti-clockwise to focus.
why the sudden failure? using MF is okay... but i suck pretty much at MF.
i tried my zoom lens, and it works okay. no problem.
any way to solve this now? or only CSC can help out?

*btw, when do CSC reopen?

Might help post camera and lens as there could be a common/known issue depending on brand/model

cant auto focus could be contact dirty, contact damage, flexible circuit broken... i got a flexible circuit broken case, due to lens old age, double sided tape fail, rub against zoom parts, then broked... never sent to service, cos dnt knw what cost it will be... :(

hey guys. thanks for all the replies.
i'm using EF-S 18-55 IS. the kit for 450D.
wa... 'cant auto focus could be contact dirty, contact damage, flexible circuit broken...'
any idea how much it will cost to repair under warranty?
or warranty is useless in this case?

Like twisted illusion mentioned, it could be that the metal contacts on the back of your lens are dirty. Perhaps you should try getting them cleaned?
errr. do i DIY?

if it is still under warranty, just sent in to service centre n pretend u dnt knw anything other than the AF cant work... they should n must get it working for u... if they tell u "blah blah blah", just say u dnt knw anything... they will surely get it working and give u a warning.... :p try...
