Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens
Ok here is the issues with the Canon 300D digital Rebel XT model of camera. First issue bent pins or broken pins the CF card reader on this camera is Surface mounted soildered onto the bottom half of the mainboard a large ammount of disasimboly is required. After removing the mainboard next you need is a desolder rework station. to carefully remove the CF card reader from the mainboard one messup and it might be easier to replace the mainboard. Sometimes. next issue is the power issue if you have no bent pins or missing pins, and the battery door is pushing on the door closure switch and the memory card door is pusting on its door closure switch then most likely you issue is 1 of 3 fuses underneath the power switch. these switches are the size of a few grains of salt very very small.I charge 150.00 to change the fuses and 225.00 to replace the CF card reader as long as none of the traces are damaged. if they are damaged the main board would need to be replaced and it is around 250.00 + depending on the parts cost at the time. If your good at soldering go for it. if not then let the experts do it.

Here is what I have learned after experiencing the same problem. More likely, it is a problem with the CF card socket (the place where the CF card fits). Check to see if any of the pins inside (2 rows of them) are bent or broken inside. This malady can prevent the camera from turning on. Similarly, it may be that the pins have shorted out. If so, then it is something that would require a trip to the camera repair shop. I hope this helps!

Here are the things you can try:
Make sure that the batteries are inserted properly, with the + and - in the correct positions. Also, make sure that the battery cover is secured tightly. Check the voltage of new batteries you installed and compare it with the old batteries. Try another set of new batteries.
If that doesn't solve your problem, please update me.

not a problem with the battery, the G7 and the G9 have a problem where a
loose screw inside the camera shorts it out and causes it to not power.
The repair service is about $85 total for a new part, installation and
return shipping of the camera!
