Canon EOS 400D (Kiss Digital X.) The camera wont turn on when i insert a battery the indicator light will turn on and turn off any fix?

Hi, please make sure that canon isn't blocking certain batteries from being used. You can also check that the batteries work by placing them into other devices and testing them. If you have an adapter please use that to attempt to power the camera. Thank you.

When trying to download pictures from my camera to my laptop I get a busy message?

Are you using a direct connection between the camera and the laptop, or a separate card reader ? If the former, it may be worth investing in a card reader, simply so that all the work is done by the computer - it may be that the camera has insufficient power to bulk-transfer images.

My Canon EOS Rebel XS film camera shut off while in use.

How old is the battery? They will only take a certain number of charge and discharge cycles. When worn out, they will charge, but fail very quickly and always in the middle of use. https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/2x-Pack-Canon-EOS-Rebel-XS-Battery-Charger-Replacement-for-Canon-LP-E5-Digital-Camera-Battery-and-Charger-1200mAh-7-4V-Lithium-Ion/PRD1R0BZPXKL7K5 https://www.google.com/search?q=canon+eos+rebel+xs+battery ..

Canon 60d built in flash will not pop up.

The external flash mount (hot shoe) has a small sliver of metal which when the external flash gun is slid on pushes it down to tell the body to not use the pop-up flash and some times the sliver doesn't return fully up to contact the underside of the hotshoe

I have a Canon EOS

Hi.

The camera is asking you to set the quick control icon. Press SET button to set the Quick Control. The Quick Control modes are presets that are used in shooting. After pressing SET, use arrows to move between settings and use the wheel to change settings. I cannot explain all modes and features of a 500D, it will take many pages. You need to read the manual to understand the meaning of your camera's function. SLR cameras are not compact digital cameras. To get the most basic settings set Quick Control to full Auto. Set AF and ISO to AUTO.

Here manual, you find more at page 102: INSTRUCTION MANUAL

Please refer to the pages indicated in diagram below to understand the range of settings for each single option. The diagram is referring to the instruction manual pages:

Canon EOS Rebel XS - won't turn on, unless I

Hi.

Test using a different battery. When it does like that it is often the battery shorted inside. If the problem occurs using a known-good battery, then the contacts in the battery slots or the circuits behind the contacts have a short. When there is no battery the shorted wires or contacts are not "hot" and the short does not prevent the camera from starting.
If the problem is not the battery the camera must be disassembled. In that case disassembling will start from the screws on right hand side (watching from front), then screws in front, then left and back. Unless you have done similar repairs before it is advisable not attempting to disassemble the camera. The camera is very easy to damage. There are springs, wires and tricky parts near to shutter button on top, selector wheel and strap holder. If problem is camera and not the battery you can get a good quote on repair here:Repair.

Regards.

The memory card says card cannot create folder

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.After unprotecting the card, insert it into the camera and format it.

Yes, I'm sure that camera will be fine, the 20D some years back was considered OK for wedding images
BUT its more about the quality of the LENS you are using and will it wok in all situations
I used to do a lot of Film work for weddings and used various canon camera bodies, but the lenses where the important factor for speed, composition - I also used a top quality flash unit, that could be used OFF camera. I used a 28mm lens, 50mm 1.8 lens - very high quality and cheaply available, 135mm portrait lens, and various zoom lens
I also always used a tripod, so i could compose the groups and then leave, the camera and go and work with setting up the group, and using a remote take the picture. I also used a flash frame on the flash, so I could turn the camera between portrait and landscape with out worrying about the flash gun

This will require disassembling the camera to remove the top cover and viewfinder mechanism to re-seat the diopter lens and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be done by a qualified service technician.

I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have it repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Try and fit Canon EFS Lens to EOS 5D Body

As far as I know, you should use L series Lens to fit Full Frame Canon Camera (5D & 1D).

That would be no adapter, but please correct me if I'm wrong.
