Original Digital Rebel - Won' t power On

The oldest of my digital cameras is the Original Digital Rebel. Before chunking it I will give it one last effort to see if anyone out there has fresh ideas.

I have had it for 4 or 5 years..probably closer to 5...when it first came out. Anyhow, the power hasn't come on in well over 6 months. I don't use this camera anymore, only my husband used it on occasion, but had just used it 2 prior prior to it's passing away.

The camera is dead. Changed the battery, changed the internal battery, cleaned off all the contact points were the batteries are and where the lens is. I have replaced the CF card etc. Absolutely nothing happens when it is powered on. No red light flashing for a second or anything. It's no worth $200 to send to Canon if they are just gonna tell me it's trash anyway....unless you have an idea.

Camera still dead with a new charged battery. Is it possible to overcharge a battery so it won't work?

If you have another battery definitely give it a try, most likely it won't work either. The problem is probably the fuse located on the DC/DC board that has 'blown' causing there to be no power. Replace the board and the camera should work fine. Canon will probably charge $175 or so for the repair.

Hope this helps.

NO POWER in my digital camera

Could be your power circuit. You may contact Canon direct in Jamesburg, NJ or take it to an AUTHORIZED service center for faster service. I know of one in Flordia 305-653-7355

Full battery and no power

I have a similar problem. But now, I can power on and off without having to remove and replace battery each time. What I did was to remove the memory card and replace it again and that appears to work. But the problem for me now is that the camera says it's busy and reminds me of my last ISO setting and a green rover ball and that's it. I cannot take pictures at all.

Very frustrating!

Digital rebel battery drain with flash only

I would suspect the batteries

Ive got an eos Rebel think its just over 4 years old
for the last year its been used every weekend for several hours 300+ pics per weekend between 2 nights I found that recently where one battery would last a night the battery was running out midway through & also taking longer to charge afterwards

2 after market replacements cost me about £10 and things are back to normal

5 years is a pretty good lifespan for a battery so its probably just getting old
