Question about Canon EOS Rebel T2 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Recurring dead batteries

We have a new EOS Rebel T2. Within a few days the batteries were dead. While we were sure the camera had been shut off we gave it the benefit of the doubt and purchased new batteries (lithium 3v CR2- cost with tax $36.12! These were installed and we made sure that the camera was in the OFF position. Within 10 days we wanted to use the camera and the new batteries were dead!!! It seems to us that the camera is somehow causing the batteries to drain. What could be the problem? What can we do? Sincerely, Roger and Lenore Andrew

Get it serviced to find out if it is repairable or only insert battery to use then remove when not in use

What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

I have found some variation in how long the CR2 batteries are. You might try bending the negative contact up to give more pressure against the battery.

How to replace clock battery in eos rebel ll

your "clock battery" is just a very little rechargeable battery, that will charge as soon as you put in a fully charged battery in your camera. You should wait for at last 12 hours, before you remove the battery. and the little battery can keep the clock running for several days.
Everything that is in the camera, only can be replaced by a skilled electronics engineer. The best thing you can do is contact a certified Canon repair centre and ask what it will cost to build in a new clock battery. But before you think it is a clock battery, make sure your battery is still in working order. Ask around if anyone you know has the same camera and borrow a charged battery for a few moments, to make sure it is not you camera battery.

Canon EOS Rebel T2 - film loaded, but then wouldn't take a picture, the frame count was flashing on screen. What is the problem?

Hi. Open the camera back and pull the film further over towards the pick up spool, close the back and try again to take a photo, i had the same problem with an eos 650 and it always worked.Good luck.

When I take videos with my canon rebel, it stops recording after about 30 seconds. Do I have some settings set incorrectly?

If you are shooting video then you must have the Canon Digital Rebel T2i as the Rebel T2 is a film camera. Anyway I've checked through some data and your camera is capable of 29 minutes 59 seconds of video before shutting down due to heat. I would expect that your memory card is not a Class 6 or faster if it is then you may have forgotten to format the memory card to the camera it is being used in.

How long has this camera been out? I'm shopping

HI,
The Canon Rebel T2i was announced on Feb 08, 2010 and Canon just started shipping the DSLR. Your salesperson was thus correct.
The DSLR is also known as EOS 550D. It differs from the previously model by:
  • Higher resolution 18MP CMOS with gapless micro lenses
  • ISO 6400 no longer in 'expanded' range (12,800 max remains the same)
  • Redesigned buttons and new movie/live view button
  • Customizable auto ISO ranges
  • Improved 63 zone metering (iFCL)
  • 3:2 format screen with more pixels
  • Improved movie functionality
  • Slightly higher burst shooting rate (though buffer holds fewer shots)
  • HDMI control (CEC)
  • SDHX Compatible

    Pictures too dark

    Check your exposure compensation. It really sounds like someone set the camera to underexpose. This may be solved by removing the batteries for a few minutes. Other solutions are hitting the reset which will cancel all and return it to factory settings OR navigate to the exposure compensation settings and reset it there. If none of these solutions work, then the camera's internal program is messed up and its internal computer needs replaced.
