Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

My eos350d camera has stopped working. There is no sign of life at all. I have tried to change the battery and even the small disk battery, but there is still no sign of life. Is there any chance of the camera working again, or is it completely dead? If there is a chance of the camera working, what can be done?

I think you'll find the EOS to be a fairly durable series. Just to cover your bases, I would clean the inside battery contacts with a Q-tip and some alcohol. That said, I suspect you may have to take your camera to an authorized repair facility - a quote should run you about $60 if the device is out of warranty and depending on the nature of the problem, the repair could cost considerably less than a new camera.

Thank you.

    My Canon has done the same thing. It will not even show signs of life when connected to a PC. Cleaning the connections with a microfiber cloth did nothing, nor did cleaning with a q-tip and alcohol.

Error 99 on Canon EOS350D

Cannon does not say what error codes above code 02 mean. They only suggest the costumer to make contact with the nearest Canon service centre.
But connecting a non autofocus lens from an other brand, could be something the camera can't cope with. And the most Canon (and other brand) camera's can't focus when a lens has a aperture greater than f/1: 5,6. The f/1: 6,3 or perhaps even f/1: 8 is one or two stops to much for your camera. Special when you try to use this lens in no bright places.

Remove the batteries and SD card, leave the battery door open, and put the camera in a jar along with a dessicant bag or a small bag of uncooked rice that has been opened. Put the lid on the jar and let it sit for a day or so. This should absorb any condensation inside the camera that may be keeping it from working properly.

Same problem..lots of life left but camera says CHANGE

How many volts do the batteries have on each of them? Many devices will not work if even one battery is less than the rated value of the battery like 1.5 volts. One battery low or bad draws down the others in series with it. It will be seen as a resistance and not a power source.

Try a new set or if you can use a fresh set of Alkaline.

Vtech kidizoom camera

We had the same issue. After turning on, nothing on the view screen and the buttons didn't work. The camera could turn on, the turn on screen and sound happened and we cold turn off (show off screen and sound)...even after changing batteries. It was like that for a week.

I found it had to do with TV connector slot. Thinking back, my daughter had been playing with the TV connector right before it stopped working. I took a small hair pin and put it in the TV connector slot, lightly wiggled it and the camera sprung back to life. I'm guessing the camera hardware was acting like it was still plugged in...hence turning off the view screen.

Anyways, hope that helps someone.
