Re: canon eos 300d (digital)

Your manual is the first place to look for an error code. then the canon site.
guessing it is a defective on board battery (the smaller of the two) or your main battery is depleted.
try removing and reinstalling the main battery first. then check the on board battery.
you may have a lens partially mounted, or some contamination on either the battery terminals or lens terminals, or a door partially open.
also, you should take out the mem card and check it in a card reader.
none of this will likely be needed if you can find the error code data. it might be that the code is specific enough to indicate the root cause of the problem.
good luck

I have bought a canon EOS 300d camera with out cd. bt when i plug my camera to my computer nothing happens .i tried to do download dpp bt all i fine is dpp updater e.t.c . i have windows xp in installed ....

The updater does not need to have a previous version installed, it will install the stand alone program. However DPP is not the program you need to connect to your camera, what you need is EOS Utility. That is also availible on the Canon website.

Im getting an Error 99 on my EOS-300D Digital Camera when I turn off my YN 465 Speedlite flash gun (still mounted) and then I start shooting manually without the flash. Help please, its a bit annoying, but...

To fix this err99 issue, do the following
1. Turn off the camera. 2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card. 3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes. 4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
If it appears again, then proceed to next steps 1. Turn off the camera. 2. Insert the CF card. 3. Turn on the camera. 4. Format the CF card in the camera.
If you still get the error you should send your product to canon for servicing.

300D doesn't turn on at all.

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't power on. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

EOS-300D Flash

your flash is acting to 'fill' for you. fill lighting can be a benefit. if you don't want it, see settings menu to turn off flash until you need it. not difficult and worth knowing how to make simple routine setting adjustments.
good luck
