10D Canon SLR can't start up

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

If you have a dead storage card, that will do it too.

I had a Lexar card go bad and with it in the camera, it was totally non functional. I inserted another card and all was well!

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? If all else fails- Canon Technical Support is the next stop

Dead battery

Be sure to charge your batteries fully before installing them. If the batteries are non-rechargeable, dispose of the old batteries properly, and then replace them.
Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge/discharge cycles before they become exhausted. If your rechargeable batteries are dead after a full charge cycle, they may also need to be replaced.

I have a 10d digital camera. battery gos dead after shooting 15+

Try cleaning your battery terminals. You can use a little rubbing alcohol on a q-tip. If you are still having issues then you will need to get another battery as that battery is shot

Canon Powershot A470 - asks to 'change battery' every time it is turned on, then turns off immediately. This is so even when new, fully charged batteries (different brands, rechargeable, non-rechargeable)...

This happened with my Canon Powershot A470. I sent it back to he manufacturer and they said I was using the wrong batteries. Even though the camera is supplied with two alkaline batteries, they recommend using AA NimH rechargable batteries.

My canon A710 says it needs batteries no matter

My A710 did exactly the same thing. Spoke to Canon support. According to them you have to use Canon 2500 mah batteries (quite expensive - need a different charger as well). I've just bought new rechargable batteries from Sanyo (Eneloop pre-charged). And it solved my problem. I've also changed the batteries quite a few times and it never worked. But this did solve the problem for me.

Hi, I was wondering why I cannot use rechargeable batteries in my camera? Everytime I put them in, the battery icon flashes as if they were dead and I know they are fully charges.

Sometimes when the battery is no longer functional, a charger will say it is fully charged but the camera knows it has no life. I experienced this with my Canon Powershot Pro and had to get a new one.

Batteries can lose their ability to recharge if they have been dropped, recharged too often when they were not fully discharged, or just plain reached the end of their life, as happens with most things.

However, if you are using ordinary rechargeable batteries (not proprietory ones), and you have tested them on another appliance and know they are good, then the problem must be with the camera.

Canon 10D takes 30 seconds to shoot after sutter button depressed

You may have it set on shutter priority or the like with the time set to 30 seconds. Try set it to landscape, portrait etc, one of the auto modes, and it should clear up the problem.

Camera will not turn on

It could be that the battery itself is dead and is not accepting a charge. Try another battery, if not Try recharging it again overnight.

If a replacment battery still does not work there may be a fault with the camera. Make sure all the conectors in ths battery compartment are clean. If the camera was stored for a long time with the battery still in place you may need to take it in to a Canon dealer.

Hope that helps

Canon 10d won't turn on

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

Canon S2 IS won't turn on with rechargeable batteries??

I would let them charge til you get an indication that they are done. TV remotes require very little power to operate, while digital cameras need a lot, so that's why the batteries would work in the remotes though not fully charged.

Battery Problem

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.
