Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm and EF 75-300mm Lenses
I am at a loss as to what to do?
I've looked thru the posts and have not been able to find a problem similar to mine.
I have a Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D... which - when you turn it on - sometimes works & sometimes does not. I KNOW it is not possessed by the Devil (even tho it feels like it might be)
I thought initially that it was the battery, so bought another battery - charged it fully and inserted it into the Camera - alas, it made no difference.
It is almost as if the camera does not recognise that there is a battery in it.
I turn the ON switch to "on", and get nothing (even with a fully charged battery) - no red power up flashing light, no date/time display and LED display... Nuthin'?
Then, I could try tuning it on and off 1, 2, 3, 15 times - sometimes it will actually work and turn 'on' correctly.... and sometimes not.
I have also cleaned the terminals on both batteries & inside the Camera, to make sure it is not just a dust problem. SO the only other thing I can think of, is that it may be the On/Off switch its self?
I would really appreciate any suggestions or help anyone can provide.
With many many thanks!
We don't charge to estimate repairs. The general repair charge for that model is around $105 if no parts are needed.

Intermittent problems are often caused by the door switches - the battery door and card door both cause switches to activate. If it's been dropped on a corner, or the doors aren't closing completely, it'll not come on at all. Squeeze the area around those 2 doors to see if it comes on. If not, there's a loose connection inside that'll have to be opened up.
