    Thanks for the reply. Tried this, but it did not fix the problem.

    2 days after Christmas my camera just stopped turning on. It had been very tempermental before that for about a month. When trying to press the button to take pictures the word error would pop up on the screen and it wouldn't shoot. It suddenly went dead and have had no success after trying repeatedly to re-install the lens and charge the battery. I noticed a small disc type battery along the top side of the battery housing and wonder if this could have any effect? Help! The model # is DS6041 6.1 MP and I've had it for exactly 4 years.

    I have the same problem and have used new battery, new 3v clock battery and cleaned contacts. Have dismantled camera to a point where I need to know how to release the top outer case. It is held at the top centre of the lenz aperture. Do I need to dismantle the inner lenz section to release a screw inside?

Re attach the lens. Sometimes they don't sit right and cause this.

Unable turn on canon 60D i was reviewing the photo

Remove the battery and memory card, switch the power switch on for a few seconds and then switch it off. Make sure the battery is fully charged, re-insert the battery and try to switch on again without the memory card in.

If you still get the error you should send your product to canon for servicing.

Canon 300d flash won't fire. Pops up ok but display just reads "busy" and camera locks up. Must turn on/off to get camera working. External flash works ok.

This may sound obvious, but have you tried to make surer the battery is fully charged and then see'ing if it still does this? The reason I suggest this is that I had a similar problem and when I fully charged the battery this problem went away. I tend to keep an extra battery (fully charged) plus the charger on hand at all times.

Canon EOS Digital Rebel 300D will not take pictures

Have you tried to take picture by switching off the autofocus to manual focus in a prperly lit environment?
If it takes a picture, then it has something to do with your auto focus system of your camera. In such a case: try taking out the battery, the memory card etc and switch off the camera and keep it for like that for about 5 minutes. And then insert only the fully charged battery and try again.
If it still gives you a problem and keep trying to focus You will need to take it to the nearest Canon Service centre.

Strange, intermittent problems with the EOS Digital Rebels can be caused by a defective shutter release switch. We charge about $85 to replace it.

Power Problem??? - Maybe Battery Related or On/Off Switch

Intermittent problems are often caused by the door switches - the battery door and card door both cause switches to activate. If it's been dropped on a corner, or the doors aren't closing completely, it'll not come on at all. Squeeze the area around those 2 doors to see if it comes on. If not, there's a loose connection inside that'll have to be opened up.
