Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

2 Answers

Troubleshooting I'm borrowing a friend's Canon Digital Rebel XT 350D. I've been using it fine over the past few days. This afternoon I left it in my room this afternoon in the bag. A little bit ago, I went to use the camera. It turned on fine and the battery was full (or at least according to the lcd); but when I went to take a picture, the light from the flash flashed several times, a beeping noise sounded, and a small white light to the left (it's to the left when you're holding the camera in your hands) of the shutter button. What could be wrong and how could I fix it?

This isn't actually an issue; these cameras are designed to operate like that. First off, the camera pulses the flash to focus in dim light (mostly indoors). You can turn this off via Custom Function 05. The beeping sound, activated by default, is the camera telling you that it's focused on something. You can disable the beep by pressing Menu, scrolling down to "Beep," and choosing "Off." The small white light is either the countdown indicator (if you're in timer mode) or the red-eye reduction lamp. Again, you can disable the red-eye reduction lamp through the menu. See the bottom of http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/CanonEOS350D/page11.asp for more information on custom functions.

EOS rebel doesn't recognize cf card, even change de CF


My rebel XTi was taking good shots but the data stored was trash, canon service center did a repair and it worked for a few shots on getting it back then the problem returned, could not figure it out until a fella at the local camera store opened the card slot and showed me that the contacts were 'dirty'.
We spent considerable time carefully cleaning the camera and I have not had problems since we took one of my cats very fine hairs out of the card slot. (To this day she will not tell me when she borrowed my camera or for what use...)

I have had bad cards as well, expecially those that I bought overseas, several were counterfit and shortly after first use, they'd fail

Sounds like loose part in Canon 350D / Rebel XT


This is nothing to worry about. The sound is made by the metal linkage inside the flash housing. Pop up the flash and touch the linkage with your fingers. You will see there is a little movement. This movement is enough to make the sound you hear.
