Question about Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
I was using the camera in the morning. When I came to switch on in the afternoon, there was no response from the camera. I recharged the battery and cleaned its contacts, but to no avail. Suspect circuit board is burned out.
As a camera repairman with 35 years of experience repairing all makes and models of cameras, I have done several EOS 40D's with this issue. The problem is one of the two motors in the body, 1 for mirror shutter charging 1 for flash head up has gone bad. When the camera is powered on the microprocessor pulses the motors for 20ms to check the battery. The motors in this camera are an extremely new design that are breaking in sometimes a very short time. Just did a repair with a shutter/mirror count of 2370 on it.

Some problems such as suspected circuit board issue will most likely require a return to the manufacturer.
