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

When The battery on my Canon 400d goes flat it loses the date and I have to re set it. I didn't need to do that until recently.



Answers :

There is a small backup battery in the main battery compartment. I believe the XTi uses a CR2016 battery. It provides backup power to maintain the camera's settings when the main battery is removed.

On the Canon EOS 400D the date/time battery is on the bottom of the camera. Turn the camera off then open the battery door and remove the battery. Under the cover you will see the CR2016, remove the holder and battery. Replace with a new CR2016.

My canon powershot camera goes to set the date and time every time I turn it on. I set the date and time, take a few pictures, turn off the camera, turn it back on again and it ask for the date and time to be set again.

I have a Canon 400d and have recently photographed a wedding. Most of my normal work is for a picture agency which I have been supplying with work for the last four years.

I just set the date stamp in the on position. Then, turned the camera off as I didn't need to take a picture. Now, when I turn it on, the lense comes out and then immediately goes back in flush and the camera is in the off position. The battery is fully charged and the camera even does this when I have it on the charger.
