Having problems with your Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera ?

My Canon EOS 400D won't switch on. No power.

\015 My Canon EOS 400D won't switch on. It was during a shoot. When I went back to it agin to finish the shoot, it would switch on. I have tried everything I can think of. Remove battery/remove clock battery/wait, then put back in and try again. Nothing. Not a flicker. At time of problem, I had a Sigma macro lens connected and camera sitting on a tripod. The 400D is 3 years old and there's never been a problem - up to now. I'm told it will probably cost a minimum of \302\243160 to fix, but nobody will tell me what the likely problem is. Plenty of people seem to have the same problem, but so far no suggestions as to the probable cause (and solution).\015

Hi, I have the exact same problem. I was taking pictures today when suddenly a shoot took long to complete (the mirror didn't go back to position). I thought it was very weird, but I just turn off and back on the power. Since then the camera won't turn on. Since I'm not the only one with this issue I start to think that this is a design/manufacturing issue. My camera is about 3 years and 2 months old and I took a total of about 15000 shots. SN is 0330127292. Anybody knows a solution or has some infos about repair cost or anything helpful?

Thanks a lot

Have you tried cleaning the battery contacts in the camera with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol? Are the batteries also 3 years old?

No power I purchased a Canon 400D about a year ago and shortly afterwards the camera suddenly gave up on me. I took a couple of photos and then nothing. The battery was fully charged and the power light came on when the camera was switched on and remained on even when the camera was switched off. I was going to take the camera in to a service centre a few weeks later for repairs but when I switched the cameraon again, the problem seemed to have disappeared. Since then I have been taking photos w

Hi there ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

I have a Canon EOS 40D When I switch it on all appears fine. When I take a photo the shutter remains open & all power is lost. I then need to remove & re-install the battery to recover power. I can view existing photos on the memory card but as soon as I switch to take a photo & click the shutter, the above happens again. Before I decide next steps I was hoping someone out there could help.


See if the problem is related to the memory card. Start by ejecting the memory card and after saving to disk via card reader, format the card. If there is a problem writing to the card, it will probably show up during the format process. Or, inser ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
