Canon EOS Rebel GII Battery Icon

I have a canon eos rebel GII 35mm, and it just recently started flashing the battery icon at me, and wont take pictures. Now i replaced the batteries with the right kind, and it still does it. I even tried cleaning the battery contacts. And when its on, and i try to push the shutter button, it makes a short sound like its trying to focus, but it actually does nothing. Any suggestions on what could be wrong or how to fix it?

Hey dafgatti,
According to the manufacturer if replacing the batteries with new ones doesn't resolve the issue then there is something wrong with the camera internally. You should have it looked at by an authorized service technician. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they should be able to send it out to an authorized service center, or you could contact the manufacturer and they should be able to assist you. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Canon EOS Rebel K2 constant low battery indicator light


Canon also uses the low battery Icon as a generic error code. Try taking the lens off the camera. If this fixes the problem the lens needs a repair (most likely the aperture unit). If not then the camera needs the repair (either the shutter or dc-dc converter circuit).
