Question about Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

1 Answer

Low battery indicator

I received the low battery indicator so i replaced the batteries. the camera still will not work. the low battery indicator still flashes & i cannot take a photo. i have had the camera for 2 years. this sounds just like "alisha"'s problem but it was not commented on. any ideas? I have the same problem. I hadn't used this camera for a couple of years (I took the batteries out during this period). Last week I bought a new set of batteries (Radio Shack brand), and when I put them in the indicator of depleted battery came on. I went back to the store and checked the batteries, and they each read 3V as they should. Then the battery indicator in the camera showed signs of life, but it indicated a low battery. When I put in a film it didn't have enough "juice" to rewind the whole thing; it went only up to picture # 9. I was able to take pictures, and the second film I tried worked fine, but still with the low battery indicator. Today I tried a 3rd film, and it struggled to rewind the film (so it's not just a faulty indicator, it seems the camera is truly not getting enough power to run properly). I haven't gotten a chance to try a different brand of batteries or to test these batteries under load. All the battery contacts in the camera look clean to the eye, but I haven't tried to clean them. Maybe I should start there...

    Mine won't even rewind. One day, it just started blinking low battery and wouldn't perform any functions. It will focus and the lcd display lights up, but when I fully depress the shutter, it balks and the lcd goes blank!

Even after full charge.... after every snap i click it says charging flash... may i know how to solve this problem?

If you are not able to take as many photos as mentioned in the manual then it is possible that the battery does not retain the charge as after a flash the charge subsides to such a low level that the processor in the camera indicates.
Also is it possible that the flash is draining too much current on the battery and is a possible fault. Hence if you can select menu and switch off flash - to manual mode- and check if the fault occurs so as to confirm the working of the flash unit.

Low battery indicator

If that camera has a problem, the low battery symbol will flash as a warning to tell you that it is not working properly. Kind of like the "Check Engine" light in your car. It tells you something is not working, but doesn't give you any clue what it is!

Check to make sure the pop-up flash is not sticking down when it is supposed to be popping up. That is the most common cause for that problem. Also, check the shutter blades in the film compartment to make sure they haven't been pushed out of their tracks when you were loading film.

If neither one of those is causing the problem, take it to a local camera repair shop and have them check it out.
