Question about Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm SLR Camera
I've had my camera for about 8 years now and have had no complaints. I've had to replace the batteries several times, but recently, when I bought and inserted new batteries, the problem persisted. When I try to shoot, the flash pops open, but that's it... An image of a battery (which looks drained) appears on the screen (this camera is from the pre-digital days), but I can't determine why, as I've already tried changing the batteries. Help!
Have you tried just the one set of replacement batteries?
Cheap batteries can cause this problem (they are the right voltage but can't supply sufficient current) or sometime you can just get a dud.
Once you have ruled this out, check that all the battery contacts (both on the batteries and in the camera) are clean and free from any oxidization.
Hopefully this will solve your problem. It would be highly coincidental if a fault developed at the same time as the batteries ran out.
Hope this helps.
