It could be the switch, the switch in the 300d is a software switch and doesn't actually cut and supply power to the camera. The best way to figure out if it is simply the switch is get the camera powered up and switch it off by opening the battery cover, If the camera powers up reliably opening and closing the battery cover your in with a good chance its just the switch.
other wise it could be anything, power supply, cpu problems... it may be worth re flashing the software as long as the camera can be coaxed into staying on once on, if the camera powers off while writing firmware it can be fatal to the camera...

Fitting isn't too much of a nightmare but involves removing both front and back of the camera and de-soldering quite a few wires.
There is also some danger involved as the flash capacitor is quite chunky on these and bite quite hard if you touch the wrong thing so its not recommended to open any digital camera if you don't know what your doing...

Parts for canon cameras are available from most approved service centers but its worth phoneing a few as the markup differs from one to another. another way is to buy a faulty camera from somewhere like ebay and use parts from that..

Best of luck

Camera will not operate, or turn off.


Many potential causes to this. It could just need a soft reset. Try turning the phone off and turning it back on, and see what happens there. I really need more information about when it happens, how often, and what you've tried before I can help you more.

Sounds like a starter problem, suggest you get it checked at your local trusted mechanic the next time it starts... If the starter is your problem it wont start for many more times.

Turn key, nothing happens


It could be the park/neutral switch, next time it doesn't start try wiggling the shifter in park while turning the key, or shift to neutral and see if that will work. if that doesn't change the problem I would replace the ignition switch.
