a number of new generation devices suffer from DOA (or early death)
often stuff happens on the first day or shortly after
thats where warranty comes in handy

return to vendor and replacement usually is offered without question

otherwise run a multimeter over the batteries and see if they have discharged themselves or failed

Rebel T2i won't power on

I had this problem and thank you to the gent that suggested there was a battery compartment closing detection mechanism. I have a battery grip and had removed that to register my t2i (needed the serial number on the bottom) and never checked operation after replacing. I toyed with the lever using a pen and noticed the red light flicker. I replaced the battery grip with batteries and all is well.
Sometimes we need a nudge to dig deeper... I had looked at the possibility of a door closed switch much the same as the the switch on the sd card door. I took a second look and found it. Thanks a million for jogging my analytical brain!

I have a Canon battery grip for my Canon EOS 300D but have no manual to tell me how to use it as the camera is 2nd hand, can i get a manulal or download one from anywhere

I understand there isn't a manual, just a quick how-to guide. Here's some basic use info from a review

The Canon BG-E6 Battery Grip is designed specifically for the Canon EOS 5D Mark II as shown above with a Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8 L II USM Lens mounted. To get the Canon BG-E6 Battery Grip into the position shown, the LP-E6 Battery is removed from the 5D II and the battery door detaches. The BG-E6 slides up into the battery compartment and locks into place via the tripod socket screw seen on the BG-E6 just below the lens in the above image. The BG-E6 provides its own tripod adapter threads - this functionality is not lost.

The Canon BG-E6 Battery Grip holds two Canon LP-E6 Batteries that deliver double the number of shots or video time from the 5D II. Alternatively, use 6 AA batteries in the included Canon BGM-E6 Battery Magazine shown below.

How do I use my time-lapse function, Does my camera have one?

There is no tme lapse function on the 400d however a search on ebay can come up with some 3rd party electronic shutter releases which have time lapse function fitted.Most are from Hong Kong but dont be put off I have bought lots of theses 3rd party accessories (battery grips, off camera flash cords,remote shutter releases etc) and all work faultlessly. Here is one of many.I do not own this one personally but I have several items by the "Yongnuo" company and they are great.

Turning on infared on my Canon EOS 400d DSLR

To the right of the LCD there are some small buttons. Right underneath the AV button, there's one. Press it, and you get three choices. The right most choice is self timer and wireless. Choose that option. The remote needs to be pointed towards the eye on the camera. It's on the front, on the "motor grip". And if you leave it on that setting too long, it "falls asleep", and you have to wake it up again before it'll fire remotely.

EOS 400D "lag"

Try reformatting the card. I don't know if this camera allows you to do a low level format or not. If you can do that.
