First of all, may I ask, where is Mauritius?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Rik. Mauritius is in the Indian Ocean

Expert:  Rick replied 2 years ago.
Ok. I can see why there's no repair centers there..

Have you tried a full reset of the camera functions? This option is available in the custom functions menu
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Yes - have tried that already.

Have done a full reset

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Have done a full reset. Can you suggest what else could be the issue?

Expert:  Rick replied 2 years ago.
A full reset will bring the camera back to factory defaults and the camera should have AF in all modes. If it doesn't, it must be an internal, technical problem which will take some "hands on" diagnosis. You're going to need to ship it to a repair center.
