How does the release switch feel? If you don't feel the two separate 'pops' when you depress it then it probably needs to be replaced. Try pushing it all around - from the front, back, both sides, etc. and see if you can get the camera to release.

Set the menu so you can fire the camera without a card inserted and see if it will then fire. Also remove the lens and set the camera to 'M' and see if it will fire.

Check the CF pins for bent pins.

SOURCE: Canon Rebel XT I can't change aperture or shutter speed in manual mode

You may try this. Reset all in the menu setup.
What you will be doing to to reset all the settings back to factory settings. Then you will want to go through the settings and reset them the way you prefer.

SOURCE: CANON REBEL XT -CF card error

Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, you may elect professional repair (likely more than you'd be willing to pay), or you might want to try the following.

Remove batteries and card. Use a small/skinny jeweler's flat screwdriver to bend the pin back as close as possible. The jeweler's screwdrivers that you see at the dollar store will work fine. Another tool that I sometimes use is a stiff wire with a bent hook on the end to get very flattened pins started. Take your time and use as much patience as you can muster (take a breather in between if needed). Just keep nudging it upward/straighter a "tiny bit at a time". Whatever you do, don't try to unbend it with one push/nudge, you won't be able to do it.

It doesn't have to be perfect, just as close as you can get it. When it's the best that you can get it, take your flash card and "SLOWLY" insert it. The card itself should fine-align the pin. Remove the card, and verify that the pin is still straightened. If so, reinsert the card and try it out.

SOURCE: Canon EOS/Rebel XT won't power up

Joe, this happened to me, just tonight... I got a new CF card and stuck it in, turned it on and one CF card flash. Completely dead from there. I found one of the CF card pins bent over, shorted out the socket and blew the mainboard fuse. I took the camera apart, found the fuse (labelled K) about under the set button area) I bridged the fuse with a bit of solder, straightened out the pin in the socket, put it all back together and it's working fine. The fuse is under the right side shield cover, it's labelled with a letter K. There is another fuse on the power inlet board (below the shutter button) and it's labelled 'P'...

SOURCE: Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT will not connect to computer.

Please discard that the USB port or the USB cable are defective. You can do it if you try to hook your camera in other personal computer using the same USB cable. If it works, then follow the next instructions.

Connect your camera to the PC thru the USB cable and turn it on.

If you are using Windows, go to the Control panel - System - Hardware - Devices - and check if there is any device that was not recognized by Windows. Such devices are marked with a yellow question mark.

If so, get into the device item and with right mouse click, select to update the device driver.

If there was not unrecognized device, then you can unistall your USB port driver and then run a change hardware status to recognize the USB port again, then run the update driver routine.

Regards,

My Rebel XTi has what seems to be a stuck shutter button? The shutter will fire w/o the lens on but will not fire once I put my 50mm back on. I recently did a sensor cleaning. Could that have something to...


Will it fire if you take the lens off AF and set it on M? If so then your release switch may be bad - I see a lot of that. Also there is a screw that comes loose that may be shorting out the auto-focus sensor flex connector. The bottom right screw on the back circuit board always comes loose/out on XT and XTi cameras.

Display only works after the shot canon eos rebel xt


The XT does not have a live view capability. It works as SLRs have worked for half a century: you frame the picture through the viewfinder and click the shutter.

Or are you saying that you can't see the menu on the display?

Ive heard it's around £170 in the UK - whether they replace one tiny part or practically the whole thing. Might be cheaper to get a replacement from an auction site!

The shutter is in the lens. Do you mean the mirror? If the mirror is locked up, was it done by selecting "Sensor Cleaning"? If so, it could be as simple as removing the battery.
