Canon EOS 30D SLR Will Not Turn On...

Dear Reader,

I am writing in pursuit of a solution to the problem of my 30D not turning on. I have taken off the battery pack and tried with a battery alone, and still, nothing works. However, when I open the CF card "drawer" and close it again, it shows signs of loading, and is responding as usual.

Any help would be much appreciated!

    I have a Canon 30D and am having a similar problem. I dropped my camera from about 2'. I don't see any physical damage but it will not power on. I checked the battery and everything I could think of. Any thoughts?

    Camera just quit working. LCD blank. The blue transfer light is on constantly but nothing else works. Similar to the other two posts here.

    I have the same problem, but I get no response when re-inserting the CF card. I do get a light flash on the SET wheel when I close the battery cover.

I seem to recall hearing that the power switch can be a problem on the 30D .. I'm not going to suggest you take it apart to clean the contacts .. better go to a Canon Dealer I think ..

If this is a EOS 30D, fist I would try is a fresh battery. If that does not help, then it may well be the camera as designed. If it had been brighter now less bright, call Canon for service options:

The CCD camera canon eos 30d is dirty and the technician tells me I can buy a new ccd. This dirt is stuck. It's very noticeable when I take photos in clear sky .. Where sold CCD Camera Canon EOS...

If you have dirt on the sensor, it can be cleaned using special products. If you Google the words "how to clean an SLR sensor", you will find sites that explain the procedure with pictures and places where you can order the supplies needed. This is much less expensive than trying to replace the ccd sensor.

When you disconnected the camera, did you use the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your computer screen or did you just yank out the cord?

Canon EDS 30D Viewfinder Off during Picture Taking Works to Display Picture Taken How do I turn back on?

The EOS 30D does not have "live view". (Most SLR digital cameras made before 2007 do not.) By definition, an SLR (single lens reflex) camera looks through the same lens with the viewfinder as it uses when taking the picture.

So there is no way to see the picture on the LCD before the picture is taken, like you can with compact digital cameras. You compose the picture through the optical viewfinder, then shoot.
