Of course, I have the Rebel XT. When I close the memory card door or replace the battery and close the door, the red light doesn't come on. After a few seconds, the power comes on and I get a CF error. I have replaced the card and battery.

CF stands for compact flash which means you have an error with your memory card. Try removing and replacing your compact flash memory card. If that doesn't work you may need to format your memory card or replace it.
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
Try changing batteries is the first thing you should try, the memory card isn't really important if your Eos isn't working.
If your Eos works, try looking on the lcd screen. It should give you an error code. Go to canon's website into the camera section and look up the code.
If that doesn't fix the problem, if you are still under warranty, I would suggest you to contact Canon for fixing it. If your under warranty, it should be free. If your not under it, you might need to pay.
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.
Assuming you have tried another card you know to be good...
Remove the memory card, main and backup battery, switch the camera on for 10 mins. While you are waiting look into the memory card slot with a torch and make sure none of the pins at the bottom are bent.
If there is this will mean opening the camera to straighten it or sending it in for repair.
If not refit backup battery and main battery and cross fingers..:)
best of luck
