Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Open Question

Canon rebel XT will not power up

I brought my camera in for a cleaning to discover that the lose CF button that I never had repaired might have caused a permanent power off situation. Can I fix it myself? The camera store told me to buy a new one camera. t When I left the store it was still working but not when I got home. So I bought a new battery to see if that was the problem, it still will not work.

You've probably gotten bent pins in the camera. Has to go to the shop.

Change out the CR2016 3V battery. You have to remove the rechargeable battery to get to the CR2016. Refer to the manual for proper instructions.

Had the same issue with a two year old camera. This solved my problem.

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.

CF probably relates to the Compact Flash memory card. It may be time for a new one. They're very inexpensive and a replacement would be the first step to discovering the problem.

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'...

8 GB CF card has made the camera lose the Raw function even when I return old 1GB CF card still the same... any ideas?


1st, make sure the camera is in the Creative zone P, TV, AV, M or A-Dep. I have made this mistake many time and everytime I forget I moved the dial.

If dial is in the Creative Zone and still no RAW option then have the camera format the card, if that doesn't work do the following:

Turn off camera,
Remove lens,
Put on body cap.
Remove CF Card
Remove Battery
Let sit for about 30 minutes.
Put battery back in.
Put CF Card back in
Turn camera on
Put camera in Creative Zone
Push Menu button
Push Set button twice and check if RAW is now an option

If not then you can try the clear all settings function in the Set-Up 2 menu. Push the menu button then the left arrow button arrow down to the clear settings line push set the clear all functions.

If this doesn't help then I would say carry it to your nearest Canon Dealer that offers cleaning and service.
