    My camera was dropped(?) or exposed to cold(?) and will not turn on at all. Camera store reccomended that I get a new battery, and felt that was the problem. I got a new battery, charged it, and there is still no power to the camera. I removed the smaller 3v, CF, etc. and it has had no effect.

Hi

If your camera is less than a year old then you should try sending it in to Canon for repair. If the camera is more than a year old you will have to take care of the repair yourself. If you take the camera to a 'camera shop' they will tell you its $200 to do the repair, but I know a place that will do it for MUCH cheaper Google: Darntoothysam com.

The fuse on the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) has most likely blown to save the board from being shorted and ruined. All you need to do is replace the fuse and you should be good to go! If you are skilled with fixing things and pay close attention to detail you can do it yourself.

If you don't want to do it, I know of a digital camera repair shop that can help you out. (Google: Darntoothysam) I don't think we have a no-power repair listed in the store, but we can get it added for you, no problem. We have a certified Canon, Nikon and Fuji tech do this repair for us, he has repaired hundreds of cameras for us over the past 5 years and does a great job.

If we can help with the repair, please let us know. Good luck from Darntoothysam com

This happened to me today. The lens drive sounded weird - like off gear. Then it froze and wouldn't turn off without taking out the batteries. Then, it would turn on. Now it's ok. What I did was remove the cf card, lens, regular battery, and the little battery that is also in the battery compartment. I let it all sit while I did other things. When I put it all back together it turned on and I had to set the date but everything worked fine.

Hi! I got a Canon rebel XT. For a month a go I droped it in water together with my Canon Ultrasonic zoom lens (75-300) in fresh water.... I took out the memory card and the battery. I dried it with a hair dryer every where for a week 1-2 hours a day.. and let it stand and dry in the sun for another week. Then I tried to turn on the camera.. the automatic lens did not work.. so I changen to my 18-55 mm lens and it worked perfect... so far so good. But after one days use I took out the pictures from the memo card.. and took out the battery to charge it again.. now is the camera totally dead. OI think its just a fuse in the camera... and the lens witch is gone. How much can it cost to repere it if I send it to you.. is it worth repering? and the lens.. is it worth to do a inner cleaning and repere it?

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.

Could be your power circuit. You may contact Canon direct in Jamesburg, NJ or take it to an AUTHORIZED service center for faster service. I know of one in Flordia 305-653-7355

Hello,

Try removing the battery and the memory card. After about a minute return them both back and try to turn it on again. Update me what will happen.

How about cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then, with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

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.

Change out the CR2016 3V battery. You have to remove the rechargeable battery to get to the CR2016. Refer to the manual for proper instructions.

Had the same issue with a two year old camera. This solved my problem.
