Unable to take picture with 18-55mm (Canon EOS 550)


Hi hi forum members....


I have canon EOS 550D with standard 18-55mm(stabilizer) lens. Recently I bought 55-250mm (stabilizer) lens. Everytime i remove the 55-250mm and install the old 18-55mm lens i am unablke to take any pictures, the lens freezes and the picture button does not execute. when i remove the (old) 18-55 and re-install the new 55-250 i can take pictures normally !!!


Please can anyone share with me if this happened and how can we fit it ?
