Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

1 Answer

My dog chewed the battery cover for my canon rebel digital camera extra battery

I need to find an extra cover for the battery so I can store it. It's just a piece of plastic, but I think it's important to have it! It's actually the original (first) Canon Rebel. Still works great.

The first thing to check is that the card door and battery door are firmly closed - press on them while the camera is on to see if it powers up. If not, there's probably a blown fuse - it will have to go to the shop.

SOURCE: Can lenses be swapped ?

The FT lens mount system (FL system) is not the same lens mount used on today's Canon EOS cameras (EF lens mount). The FT/FL system was used for a very short time in the 1960s, and was replaced by the FD lens mount system. Canon switched to the EOS/EF system in the late 1980s/early 1990s. So the lens will not fit on a Digital Rebel, and because it's 2 generations away from the lenses that do fit I don't think there was ever an adaptor made. Sorry!

SOURCE: kit-lens came with Canon Digital Rebel (original first model)

The lens itself won't corrupt your data. A bad lens would be unable to focus or be unable to communicate with the camera about focal lengths, aperture etc.
It is more likely the camera itself is starting to fail. The consumer Canons are only designed for around 100,000 photos - how many has yours taken? The 300D is quite old now, so will be starting to show its age.
How may CF cards do you have? If you a few, try them in turn, formatting each on the camera and seeing if you still get the errors. If you have another lens, try that also just to put your mind at rest. If all cards fail, the CF card interface of the camera could be failing. If you only have one CF card, get another (or two!!) and if it works OK, throw the old one away.
One extra piece of info: I had a 300D but upgraded to a 350D as the 300D has a nobbled CF interface making it about 6x slower. No point buying UltraII or UltraIII cards for the 300D as it just can't use them as intended. You really notice the speed increase moving to a 350D, but have to get used to the much smaller body size.

Try changing the "communication" setting on the camera from "PC Computer" to "PTP"
Menu > Tools2 (wrench/hammer/2) Communication = Print/PTP

Then connect your camera to your PC. You might trick your PC into opening the transfer application.

HiI suspect where brought repair shops were not capable of handle that problem. Usually focus problem doesn't occur unless you impact, drop, or from the beginning of your purchase which sometime canon product have problem of focus alignment. Well, If you have extra lens, then you can check it out that your body bad, or the lens bad. If you can check it out, I will help you more. (probably they don't have adjustment software for focus alignment)

Canon EOS rebel XTi won't turn on. Changed batteries several times still nothing

Trying taking a Q-tip with some alcohol and cleaning the contacts inside the battery chamber. Also, you can take it to your local camera store and ask them to try it with one of their batteries to rule out if yours is dead.

Thank you.

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT will not turn on.

It could be a number of things. The first thing you shouild do is remove the back cover and check for loose screws. If you don't find any, the problem may be a damaged battery door switch, a damaged memory card slot door switch, or worse- it may be a defective power board.

Canon eos rebel won't turn on, charged the battery, replace and it would turn on but if you turn it off it won't turn back on. Took the battery out and replaced it would turn on until you turn it off...

Went through the same thing. Ended up sending it back to the Canon repair depot. Evidently this is a common and rather annoying problem with the Rebels main board power section It is covered under warranty so it is best to check for coverage and get it in there.

Canon rebel won't power up

If you have only one battery (or only one device to test the battery with), it is hard to determine if the issue is the battery or the camera itself.

If possible, I would recommend trying a second battery if you have not yet done so. Maybe a local camera store might have a display they could possibly allow you to try at the counter.

If the problem has persists with multiple batteries, unfortunately it sounds like the camera needs to be serviced.
