Re: EOS 300 D

Mother board, or battery. maybe as simple as power management board. but not user serviceable. discuss with makers repair line staff. could also be a bad switch.
good luck

Canon 400d not starting

While there may be a number of causes of no power, the usual one is that the bottom right screw that holds on the back circuit board has come out and has shorted out a section of the circuit. Usually it blows the 'P' fuse on the front board, but depending upon were the screw ends up it could blow the flash and drive boards or damage a section of the rear main board.

Also check to make sure you do not have bent CF pins - if the center power pins are bent and touch other pins they might blow the circuit. Usually this blows the 'K' fuse under the lower right shield plate on the rear circuit.

When the Compact Flash Card is inserted into the EOS camera a pin has bent over and a message reads "Error CF". Please advise cost to correct. Forgive me, but I am securing more than one quote...

Is it the compact flash card that has a pin bent? If so, I would replace the card with a new one. If the pin on the camera is damaged, then service at or 1-800-OK CANON is indicated.

Camera take pictures but all buttons (menuset and more not working)can not do setings and playback on lcd monitor thanks

I have seen this fault after a blown fuse caused by bent pins in the CF unit. I think the camera needs to be taken to an expert for repair.

My Canon EOS Rebel XT doesn't recognize the CF card. It recognized it earlier, but I removed it and now it won't see it. I also tried a different CF card and it didn't work.

LOOK INSIDE THE CAMERA Card SLOT AND SEE IF ALL THE PINS ARE STRAIGHT You may have bent the pins which is easy to do. If they are bent it will be a serviceman job to replace the module

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

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'...

Canon EOS 350D CF memory card won't go into slot

It sounds like you have some bent pins in the card slot. Take it to a reputable camera repair and they can look and tell you for sure.

Zoombrowser not working- not able to download RAW images to computer

Make sure you turned the camera on. Could be a bad cable. Best thing to get is a usb card reader. Some people report problems of bent pins because of removing and reinserting them in the camera. So be careful there. Re-Install the software that came with it from Canon. Or you can download it from CanonUSA. URL below.

choose your OS and download what you need. 
Looks like ZoomBrowser is up to 6.1 now.

I had the same problem; I could insert the card but it wouldn't read. I Got a CF error message. I was going to get it fixed then I realised that the bent pin was touching the adjacent pin. So I intentionally broke-off the damaged pin... an now it works perfectly! Many of the pins on CF cards don't appear to function.

Obviously, only do this if the pins are touching and you can't bent the pin back straight. You could make thing worse by rummaging aroung the CF slot, but as I was going to send it away anyway, at some considerable cost, I had nothing to lose.

Check the CF connector in the camera. One of the pins might be bent...
