Not sure what is happening but my 10D went dead. I recharged the battery and made sure it is fully charge (i am quite sure there is nothing wrong with my battery) but my 10D still wouldn't start up.
I am wondering if this has got anything to do with the coin-sized battery that is at the bottom of the camera and i am thinking of replacing it.
Would that help? Please can anyone help

Re: 10D Canon SLR can't start up
Well replace it by all means - what does the Manual have to say about this particular battery
It is usual for a full manual to be on a PDF file on the software disk - have you checked this out?

your "clock battery" is just a very little rechargeable battery, that will charge as soon as you put in a fully charged battery in your camera. You should wait for at last 12 hours, before you remove the battery. and the little battery can keep the clock running for several days.
Everything that is in the camera, only can be replaced by a skilled electronics engineer. The best thing you can do is contact a certified Canon repair centre and ask what it will cost to build in a new clock battery. But before you think it is a clock battery, make sure your battery is still in working order. Ask around if anyone you know has the same camera and borrow a charged battery for a few moments, to make sure it is not you camera battery.
1.Remove the main battery and the small backup
battery (CR2025) from the battery compartment. Charge your main battery and put
both batteries back in once your main battery has been charged. Sitting without
batteries will give the camera a chance to reset itself.
2.You may have a bad CF card. Try starting your
camera without a CF card or use another.
3.Try reloading the firmware (camera's operating
system) using this link Canon. http://web.canon.jp/imaging/EOS10D/10D_firmware-e.html
Be careful to follow instructions exactly
as restarting the camera in the middle of a firmware update will brick it and
you will need to send it back to Canon for repair.
The probleme: The Shuteer Has A cable Connected to Recorder Maybe The cable Has Cutted when you Shut ,or Maybe Cutted When You Charged The Battery cause When your put your camera on the charge , the cable goes be hot and it should be cutted .
Solving The Probleme : 1) I advise You To Change The Cable 2) Push The Reset Button 3) Charge It Again
the battery's are most likely dead, (like the real dead) after many uses of rechargeable battery's they slow stop holding charge at all, make sure when you get a new rechargeable battery you fully charge it once and fully discharge it once this will increase batterys life time
well got a little advice from a friend and here is what he suggested the lens might not be on all the way so try taking it off and putting it back on as stupid as this sounds it actually worked when i did it on mine also even though you've probably done it already clean the battery's contacts and the ones in the camera and hopefully that's all the bigger the problem is. good luck
I figured out the problem. My AA battery recharger was not making good contact, so although it said the batteries were recharged, this was not the case. After fixing this and getting full recharges, the problem went away.
