I had the same problem. The cause was the looseninjg of the plastic clamp at the top. I stuck a a piece of paper (thick) on the side of the battery to stop its slide upward. It works fine. The tape may not hold the battery fast enough.

Depending on the situation, it could be several issues.
- Battery may not be charged, or wasn't charged properly.
- Battery is cold.
- Camera may actually still be on, but it won't show on the monitor because you may have them turned off.
Try this: Press DISP until shooting data or photo information displays, it should show up at some point. If it doesn't then it has to be the battery.
If you don't think it is, try and provide extra information on when was the last time you used it or the last time you charged the battery and etc. Thanks!
Hi, That sounds like an issue with the memory card. Yes you will lose all current photos on it when you format the memory card. It's also safe to leave the battery in the camera as DSLRs don't drain power when the camera isn't in use.
Hi, thats called the battery hold or leg. The camera still should power on without it, it is just used to hold the battery in place while you swap out memory cards. Try to power on the unit with the door open while holding the battery in place with your finger to see if the battery hold is truly the problem. If it powers on then you can probably find a replacement battery hold on Ebay or Ecrater for fairly cheap. The problem is installation, its fairly involved and would require complete disassembly. I could give you the disassembly steps once you get to that point.
Drivers side door will not close because, it might have dropped out of alignment and is sagging down slightly!!! or if it has electric door locks, and someone in the family has failed to mention door locks were activated while that one door was still open!!! now lock mechanism has passed it's normal stopping place and is now stuck, therefore already locked and not allowing door to close all the way!! you might try disconnecting battery then try jiggling the lock, and hope silenoid didn't get burned out, open passenger door and look at lock latch, then check drivers side lock latch!!! if your lucky lock latch should unlock when battery is hooked back up. i have seen this problems happen often on older vehicles!!! especially on cars or trucks that have been in fender benders.........body shops know what to check for, they fix problems like this often!!!!! Good luck!!
The battery door on these models just hooks under a wire next to the battery hole. They can pop off rather easily as they are a small piece held in place by a spring, essentially. You can often find the part on ebay for a few $ and snap it in place yourself. The same battery door is used by the XTsi, HTsi, STsi cameras. Its very possible that you did not lock it properly the last time you put in new batteries. Hold the door down while you turn the quarter as you lock or unlock it. Otherwise the pressure of the battery spring will prevent a good lock.
check the battery door to see if it is closed tightly. if the door is not, the connection between the terminals on the underside of the door and the battery terminals are not tight. Try putting some finger pressure on the door itself, trying some different places on the door, and see if that works. i found the same thing was happening with mine (after replacing/recharging batteries few times). Unfortunately, my warranty is up and now i am trying to find a parts supply store or a cheaper repair place to fix the door properly.
I WOULD SUSPECT THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG ON THIS NEW DOOR THAT THE BATTERIES ARE NOT MAKING GOOD CONTACT WITH THE DOOR AND THEREFORE NOT SUPPLYING POWER TO THE CAMERA. IF IT WORKED BEFORE THE DOOR WAS REPLACED, THERE MUST BE SOMETHING AT THAT POINT. I WOULD LOOK THERE FOR PROPER PRESSURE ON THE BATTERY OR BATTERIES.
