Issue with my Canon Digital Rebel


New Member
My camera started taking pictures with 3/4 of the screen (horizontaly) in black.
I took the lens and realized that one of the mirrors is not going up when you take the picture... It stays there and that's the 'black' in the picture. If I put it up manually, it takes the pictures Ok but it has no AUTOFOCUS.
Any tip regarding what to do or what's the problem?
(except from "take it to a camera repair store, as I'm travelling in small cities and I can't right now)?I'm going to be in Hong Kong soon and going to take it...

Thanks a lot!...
