Question about Canon EOS Rebel T2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera

1 Answer

Low battery warning

I purchased a second-hand canon eos rebel t2 (300x) 35mm SLR. On my first time using the camera, i bought brand new batteries and a new roll of 200iso film, and tried to take pics on a sunny day, using full auto mode. The camera switched on, autofocus worked fine etc but every time i tried to take a photo, the low battery icon flashes (even though its new, and the camera registers it as full the rest of the time). The shutter fires and the viewfinder goes dark for a split second as normal, but the film doesn't wind on and it just flashes "low battery". The same thing happens in all other picture modes - though i have managed a few successful pics using manual mode and once using portrait mode. I have tried several different films and batteries but the problem persists.

    I'm having the same problem with my camera....and I did not buy mine used. I've had it for about 2 years and have never had problems with it until now. Of course the warrenty is up :( Anyway, I bought Duracell ultra CR2 Lithium batteries...but I still get the low battery warning. I do not have the option to plug mine in.

    I just bought this camera as well, and am experiencing the same problem. Have tried at least four different sets of batteries... the camera does not have a DC power plug option. The camera is no longer covered by the warranty, as I bought it second-hand.

What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

I have purchased today an EOS Rebel Canon T3i camera and am trying to register it today to qualify for benefits. This product does not appear on your list. Please advise me what to do.


Register your camera directly with the manufacturer.
If you bought it in the US, go to http://www.canonusa.com
Under the "Consumer & Home Office Tab" select "Product Registration".

If you bought it elsewhere, go to http://www.canon.com
Select your country or region and go from there.

If you bought this camera new, return to the store and get help, or some dealer. You may also call Canon support for this model and get help there. Canon has great support, and will surely help.
Hope it works.

Canon EOS 500n 35mm Film Camera, best cheap lens


In short, you won't. All Canon Digital SLR's use the same lens mounting system as your EOS 500n and new lenses are very expensive especially for those who have purchased full-frame models.

As a result, demand for the lenses which fit your camera is very high and so prices are high as well: it's just basic supply and demand economics. There were cheaply made kit lenses available with your camera when it was new, but like most kit lenses they weren't built to last, so most of the older ones are either non-functional or have been scrapped after owners upgraded. All that leaves are the higher quality, well built, lenses from the time your camera was made which are far cheaper than new lenses but still comparatively expensive.

If you want cheap lenses then you've picked the wrong system. Buy an older FD mount Canon SLR if you want to stay with Canon; you'll then find that lenses are so cheap that they're often offered for free on your local FreeCycle group. The same source is where I've got all of my manual focus (and some AF) SLR equipment over the last few years.

I put in a new battery. When I switch to


New batteries should always be charged before the first use as they loose charge lying idle in stores. All batteries do.

Canon EOS Rebel K2 constant low battery indicator light


Canon also uses the low battery Icon as a generic error code. Try taking the lens off the camera. If this fixes the problem the lens needs a repair (most likely the aperture unit). If not then the camera needs the repair (either the shutter or dc-dc converter circuit).

Battery problems


Check the battery contacts inside the camera. Use a strong light, and if you see corrosion (black or greenish areas) on the contacts, rub them lightly with a pencil eraser until they are shiny.
