Silly me. All the camera needed was new batteries. Strange though that even although batteries still had some life in them, it wasn't enough to tell me that I needed new batteries.

Canon EOS 300x battery problem: it doesn't work, even with fresh batteries. The LCD battery indicator blinks as they we're dead.


First make sure the batteries are in the correct position/orientation clean both battery terminal and look down inside the battery compartment make sure the "lower" connection is clean (shinny) if not you may need to use a pencil eraser with a piece of sandpaper affixed to it to get down in there and scrub off the corrosion. Another thing and I've run into this myself on a Canon Elan IIe was the battery indicator showed new batteries as dead but the camera attempted too function so, I just used it and used it and withing a few minutes the battery indicator showed the battery state of charge more accurately.

The camera back button requires power to operate and as the electronics seem to be fried button pushing doesn't open the door. So is there a manual access way? thanks


I had a Canon Elan IIe and I don't recall having to have electronics to open the camera back.
Make sure you have a battery in it, turn it on look at the LCD panel and see if it has film in it.
If so you should be able to push the "mid roll" film rewind button located on the back left side it shows a film canister icon. Once the film has rewound into the canister release the back with the mechanical latch found on the left side (while facing the back of the camera) just push it down and the back will pop open. Those cameras are pretty darn good and the only thing I've seen friy the electronics is using an "old" type flash on the hot shoe and that takes the flash circuit board and melts the thing. I'd expect the camera battery is dead and you can't rewind the film back into the canister.

Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT: The upper lcd screen info flickers,some of the icons on the screen work normaly, but other icons are lighter and flicker. Im speaking about the portion that displays battery...


It seems you have a false contact in the upper LCD screen, its flat ribbon cable or the connector at the main board.

It is necessary to open it and check it.

It is fairly easy to do it, but if the camera has a warranty, I do recommend you to make it valid.

If does not have warranty, then you may try in do it yourself if you have some experience and skills to fix electronic devices, or pay to have it done.

Best regards,

Rebel 2000 went retarded


I got a Rebel 2000 off ebay, and it had the same problem. The Shutter wouldn't open, it showed dead batteries, and the mirror hung until I pressed the shutter button or changed modes.
After a good deal of surfing, I found that the most likely reason was a sticky/oily shutter
(http://photonotes.org/articles/oily-shutter/).
Since I didn't have much $$$ invested in the camera, I tried cleaning the shutter curtain with Qtips and alcohol. After a little cleaning, the shutter started to move. After a lot of cleaning, the shutter moves freely. I ran a roll of film through it, and it seems to be working just fine now.
