Rebel XT autofocus failure
Dec 17, 2009

A friend who also has a Rebel XT showed me his camera today, which fails to autofocus with both lenses he owns.

I played with it, and in all modes, with plenty of light - the autofocus motor adjusts for a second, and then stops. never properly focuses.

sensor is clean, contacts are clean...

I have heard about a plastic part failing??
How does one diagnose this issue?

Thanks
