Question about Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a Canon Rebel XSI. Lately, when I try to turn it on, nothing happens. I know there's a charged battery -- two, actually, because there's a battery grip. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. And sometimes the white balance button will flash repeatedly, even when the power is set to off. I've tried it without a lens. I've tried it without the grip. I've cleaned the gold contacts around the lenses and batteries. Any help would be appreciated.

Try replacing the battery. If that not works then go to any service centre and try removing the static charges.

My rebel xsi won't turn on. there is nothing. I used it yesterday and it was fine. I changed the battery and still nothing! HELP!


Hi please try to do this and let me know. Remove the battery and give a look inside the battery compartment with spot light. Make sure that place are clean and there no damaged mark. Specially look the Battery connector pins. That should in proper place , not bend, not even sulfur layer there. Use ear buds and drop of alcohol for cleaning. After checking if every thing Ok then some how the power supply not able to connect the circuit board. Its happens when the connectivity cable disconnected or damaged, circuit board short or the power transformer stop working. For all this internal fault part confirmation you need to visit electronic repair center.

but before visit for repairing make sure the battery which one you use that's is fully charged with working condition. Thank you

I tried to turn my camera on and nothing happens. All doors are shut, battery is charged and works in other camera. Is there anything else I can try at home before sending it in?


The only causes I can think of that aren't "serious" are a faulty memory card door (camera thinks it's open) or faulty battery door...try turning it on while applying light pressure to both doors and also try to inspect the contacts inside the camera with a flashlight. You can put some rubbing alcohol on a Q-Tip and swirl around inside the battery compartment for a good 5 minutes. That worked on my girlfriend's XSi and it never happened again afterward. There was some VERY minor corrosion on the contacts.

My Canon Rebel XSi screen will not turn on even though the battery is fully charged.


Does it take pictures? If it does, the display may be off, try pressing the DISP button a few times. If not, the camera may need to be reset, the battery may be faulty, or the camera may need to be serviced.

Busy light comes on when I start the camera


I believe your camera comes with a 90 day manufacturer's warranty. I would goto Canon's website as soon as possible.

Good luck!
