Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera won't power up

Hi, I recently left my battery charging at our beach house and had to purchase a replacement one. I tried one at a local drug store and it wouldn't work so I purchased one from the Canon website. I charged it over night and since placing it in the camera, the camera will not power up. I just got back from our beach house and brought my other battery home (the one that came with the camera) and still no power. Could I have done something to the camera by trying the battery from the drug store?? The camera was working fine then I forgot the battery and was desperate and tried a compatible battery from the store and the camera will not power!! Can anyone help??

I just experienced the same problem. Saturday I was playing with it, shut it off put it away. Sunday came it was completed dead with fully charged batteries and a new lithium battery it won't power up and I've got a wedding to shoot next week. What do I do?
