Hi,

It is possible that the battery terminals of the camera are not giving enough pressure/contact to the batteries. Additionally, you may want to clean/scrape these terminals (prongs). In some instances, bending them (or stretching if spring type) may help to provide more pressure/contact to the battery.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

FORGOT PASSWORD IN RESTRICTED MODE CANON 40D


Try doing a "hard reset" to clear all the camera settings to factory specs:

  1. To reset the camera, remove main battery and back-up battery (Backup battery compartment says CR2016 3V on the wall of the compartment is a little tray that slides out)
  2. Turn the camera off/on switch to ON
  3. Wait 10 sec turn OFF
  4. Replace batteries.

I have a Canon 40D and have never replaced the original lithium battery as someone told me that rechargeable Li - ion batteries don't have a lifespan. My picture quality isn't what it use to be...


The battery does not affect the picture quality. The recharageable battery may affect the auto focus if the battery is low, recharging the battery should fix this problem. Otherwise the camera needs a service.

Canon 40D - All settings are reset after reboot - Serious error


I would hesitate to disagree with Canon service, but you may want to try replacing the date/time battery. It's a small "button" battery (CR2016) that is supposed to provide power so that the camera 'remembers' the date, time, and other settings when the main battery is removed.

It is located in a holder that slides out of the camera, right next to where the main battery is located. It's worth a try.

Canon 40D LCD Wont come on buSY flashes in view finder


Okay, this is simple. Your camera can take several pictures at one time in a burst. However when you release the shutter button your processor takes a second to actually SAVE the pictures to the card in the camera. One thing than has helped me in my wedding photography business is to buy the fastest speed cards I can find. It significantly reduced my "busy" time.

Canon 40D can not turn on


Same problem. Fully charged main battery. In my case, I hadn't used the camera in over 6 months. All I did was pull the main battery and then pulled the small CR 2016 button cell battery located inside the main battery compartment and re-inserted both batteries. The camera made a quiet click and then turned on with the main power switch and asked to reset the date and time. Works fine now. If this doesn't work just purchase a new button cell.
