Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Camera Keeps freezing/turning off

I've had this problem twice (about 3 months apart )now and have no idea what the problem is.

In the middle of taking pics, my 400D freezes, the green powerlight stays on but nothing happens, it won't take pictures, turn off or do anything. The only way to get it working again is to remove the battery. The CF card lights up red as if something is happening, sometimes it starts working again, sometimes it doesn't. I have a battery grip attached and at first thought this might have a faulty connection, but I've tried to turn it back on with the battery in the camera, without the grip and still nothing happens.

Eventually it comes back to life after a few minutes, I dont have a clue why this is happening, does this camera have a serious fault?

Any suggestions?

Sounds like the camera is writing to the CF card. If this is after taking several shots, even worse in continuous mode. That's why it won't shut off or anything, it has to finish that before it will shut down. If you have access to one try a different card. Remember to reformat it in this camera. Page 38 of your manual. If that works for you take the card into a camera shop and ask them if they will do a low format a newer camera like a XSi, then reformat it in your camera again before you use it.

My Acer happy keeps on freezing and not responding. I've formatted it twice but still having the same problem..


Remove one stick of ram and test, if no change! remove the second piece and put back the first, if this works! the memory stick in your hand is defective and will need to be replaced.

Can someone help me on my nikon D3100 freeze problem?


New battery that is fully charged. My Nikon D3100 has had the problem of freezing every ten or so pics since it was a couple of months old. Still does it today after six months of use. I take a few hundred pics with it when shooting but only shoot once or maybe twice a month.

Have to take the battery out, put it back in etc. each time. Sometimes it allows me to power off and then back on but either way it's a pain in the rear and a serious "time waster".

When I try to view my pictures on the camera, it freezes. I can take pictures, but I can't look at them or delete them because it keeps freezing. I tried charging the battery but it still happens. Is there...


My camera keeps doing this as well. The only solution I have come up with is to turn the camera off after taking your photo and then pressing the 'play' button to view them. If you press to view after taking the photo it freezes and the only way to do anything is to pop out the battery to reset the camera. I don't know why it happens as my camera is only 8 months old and has never been used under water or dropped.

In the middle of playing any game it will just freeze, What do I do


Hello,

Try to ensure that the CD's and lens are cleaned at least twice a month. And always ensure that for extended periods of gametime, the Console does not over ~ heat. :)

Zoom will not retract


I took the camera apart, painstakingly removing all the screws. Within the zoom area were two small loose pieces, one appeared to be a lens, the other a thin metal cover. I placed the parts back into their place, and put all the screws back, except for the case. When I did a test to see if everything would work..... Eureka !!! No, sorry, Darn!
The camera appears to be at the same status, turns on long enough to see the "For Service...." message pop on the screen, then the camera powers off.
I will be taking the camera apart again, and will use a meter to check connections.
Will report back if there is further progress on this situation.

My ipod middle button doesnt work what can i do help


This usually happens if the membrane of the action button deteriorates and the gold plated contacts between membrane and logic board do no longer establish good contact.
There are specialized online tutorials with iPod Repair instructions that will guide you through the steps of taking it apart and cleaning the contact or replacing the button altogether otherwise you'll have to send it to any third party iPod repair service and they'll replace the membrane for you.

I have the same dictionary and have owned it for 3 years now. Half my screen went out a month or so agao and I couldn't find anyone who could repair it so I just opened it up and and *gently* tapped around to make sure there were no loose wire connections on the back of the screen. Lo an behold it worked! Maybe this could help with your problem. I would at least try that before buying a new one. (BTW taking it apart was a little difficult but not impossible... around 15 minutes or so for me)
