Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Canon EOS-300D not seen by computer/not turning on

We cannot use the download pic software as error message says USB in use. Now when we go to turn on camera, nothing happens with fully charged Li-ion battery. Do you think actual battery is dead/no longer holds charge or something more major? My daughter just got back from a trip to the Bahamas where the weather was VERY HOT and she plugged battery charger in there. Any chance heat/diff. plugs effected battery/camera?

    Carefully check your voltage- but any multi voltage stabilized power'brick' will do - Wallmart?
    USB in use.- disconnect all other USB devices
    .
    Then go to Control panel/system/hardware/device manager/USB devices- check for yellow warning if all OK simply rollback the drivers.

Wont turn on and lens wont extend. Put in new fully charged battery but still nothing. Can hear motor but nothing works.


This is may be a camera battery problem or a lens error. Try Li-ion batteries first and see if anything better

Camera doesnt turn on


The Li Ion battery is going bad, or is not charged fully. When the voltage goes down below a certain level, the camera will not operate at all.

And, using other batteries other than Li Ion won't work, either.

I put a new battery in my camera charged it. Used the camera till the battery ran down. Now it won't charge . This is the second battery I've bought every time I try to charge it won't charge.


It takes over 7 hours to charge, so did you leave it charge overnight?

But while the original battery is chargable, disposable replacements are not. Here is what the manual says:

{ ...
The supplied battery is a Li-ion battery. It charges while in the camera using the supplied charger. The camera can also use a Duracell CP1 disposable Li battery, which has the same form factor as the supplied Li-ion cell. HP claim the Li-ion cell will provide power for approximately 200 shots under "average" use and 100 shots with "extensive use of the LCD and flash".
Charge time for the battery using the supplied charger and in-camera charging is 5-7 hrs for a fully depleted battery. In the optional docking station, charging takes 2.5-3.5 hrs and using the optional rapid charger, charging takes 1-2 hrs. ... }

When i plugged it in for the first time to recharge battery, nothing happens - no flashing green light - I left it plugged in anyway but it still did not charge Coolpix S3000 EN-EL10 Li-ion battery...


I faced the same problem too. But I realised that after plugging in the adapter and connecting it to the camera, you would need to press the power button but not turn it on.

If the actual batteries are working properly, a solution would be replaceing the batteries with others with more miliAmps. Also your problem could be a bad battery charger. I want to remind you that you need Li-Ion batteries for your type of camera and a Li-Ion battery charger.Try that and see if it helps you.If not try to explain what really happened and I'll try my best.

Li-Ion batteries cannot be charged efficiently with power supplies or NiCad chargers, they need a pulse charger dedicated to Li-Ion batteries. Also, there is a danger in charging with other sources as Li-Ion batts. will catch fire or explode if not charged properly. Please get a charger that is made for those batteries

Batteries


Hi, This might be a case of the defective batteries (though brand new). Most if not all rechargeable batteries including Li-Ion batteries have only so much shelf life. The unit might be new but have been with the dealer for sometime. Probably your best bet would be to bring it back to the dealer and ask for a replacement camera or at least the batteries. Show him the fully charged indicator and how quick it will be gone when you try to take a pic. Of course, you would need your warranty card, proof of purchase and any other documents normally asked for complaints like this, Hope this give you an idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Camera keeps turning off


Digital cameras are very Voltage Sensitive. Using Nicad or NiMh batteries will not only , "Not" solve the problems above but will
actually aggravate the above problems for one reason.

Rechargable NiCad or NiMh batteries only produce 1.2 volts fully charged and will only give you 2.4 volts when used in pairs with this camera. This falls below the cameras desired 2.8 - 3.0 voltage requirement and will only result in about 30-40 pictures at most.

This camera requires a constant 2.8 - 3.2 volts to run properly. Kodak won't tell you this !!The camera was designed with Oxy Akaline batteries in mind.New alkalines will produce 3.2 to 3.4 volts in pairs but only for a short period of time.The issue with the Oxy Alkaline batteries is that they simply will not last very long in this camera due to its power requirements.

But there is a really great solution to the problem . You can purchase a CRV3 rechargeable Li-ion battery that fits right into this camera.
You will get a realistic 180-250 photos per charge.The Li-Ion battery maintains a constant 3.0 volts for a very long period of time
and will allow the camera to function the way Kodak originally intended it to and can be recharged. You will find rechargable CRV3 battery kits on ebay or other online battery stores at a very reasonable cost.

You can also use a Lithium Non rechargeable CRV3 battery that will give approx 250-300 photos per battery but you may
find non rechargeable Lithium batteries cost prohibitive.

I use the rechargeable Li-ION Battery exclusively in this camera and it functions perfectly since I switched. I have a pair
of CRV3 Li-Ion batteries so I always have a fully charge CRV3 ready to go.

For reference I was only able to get about 30 pictures with the high capacity 2800 Mah Rechargeable NiMH Batteries I used prior
to using the LI-ION Battery. I get on average about 175 pictures per full charge from the LI-ION Battery.
