Canon Rebel won't turn on, red light next to "CF"

Hi,

My camera was working fine and I switched the memory card to another one. Now it won't turn back on. There is a red light on next to the letters "CF" (just to the right of the display screen.)

Hi,
Assuming you have tried another card you know to be good...
Remove the memory card, main and backup battery, switch the camera on for 10 mins. While you are waiting look into the memory card slot with a torch and make sure none of the pins at the bottom are bent.
If there is this will mean opening the camera to straighten it or sending it in for repair.
If not refit backup battery and main battery and cross fingers..:)
best of luck

Hello,

Try removing the battery and the memory card. After about a minute return them both back and try to turn it on again. Update me what will happen.

Camera will not turn on


Try changing batteries is the first thing you should try, the memory card isn't really important if your Eos isn't working.

If your Eos works, try looking on the lcd screen. It should give you an error code. Go to canon's website into the camera section and look up the code.

If that doesn't fix the problem, if you are still under warranty, I would suggest you to contact Canon for fixing it. If your under warranty, it should be free. If your not under it, you might need to pay.

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'...

Canon 350d not turning on/screen not working/


Does the camera work properly with the CF card removed? If it does than the CF card is the problem. Try formatting the card with the camera or getting a new one.

CF Card not found


Ok here is the issues with the Canon 300D digital Rebel XT model of camera. First issue bent pins or broken pins the CF card reader on this camera is Surface mounted soildered onto the bottom half of the mainboard a large ammount of disasimboly is required. After removing the mainboard next you need is a desolder rework station. to carefully remove the CF card reader from the mainboard one messup and it might be easier to replace the mainboard. Sometimes. next issue is the power issue if you have no bent pins or missing pins, and the battery door is pushing on the door closure switch and the memory card door is pusting on its door closure switch then most likely you issue is 1 of 3 fuses underneath the power switch. these switches are the size of a few grains of salt very very small.I charge 150.00 to change the fuses and 225.00 to replace the CF card reader as long as none of the traces are damaged. if they are damaged the main board would need to be replaced and it is around 250.00 + depending on the parts cost at the time. If your good at soldering go for it. if not then let the experts do it.

Canon Digital rebel Wont turn ON


This happened to me today. The lens drive sounded weird - like off gear. Then it froze and wouldn't turn off without taking out the batteries. Then, it would turn on. Now it's ok. What I did was remove the cf card, lens, regular battery, and the little battery that is also in the battery compartment. I let it all sit while I did other things. When I put it all back together it turned on and I had to set the date but everything worked fine.
