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

Master Reset on a Canon EOS 400d without starting the camera

\015 My question is basically as stated in the sumary, how- if possible, do I perform a master reset/cold boot/reboot of the camera without using the on screen menu?-Is there for example a set of buttons I should/could press at the same time when switching the camera on?\015

First, thank you for providing such detailed information about what you have already tried! This is a refreshing change from most questions asked on this site.

Second, I have bad news. All of the symptoms you describe are consistent with a power problem within the camera. No amount of pressing different buttons or loading different software as the camera stars will help it start if it simply isn't getting power from the battery.

You can reset the firmware by loading firmware onto the CF card. As part of the boot process the camera checks to see if there is a special file on the CF card that then updates the firmware on the camera. See this link for more details.

Finally, as a new Expert on this site I'm trying very hard to only provide answers that "fix" the problem so I can get FixYa ratings and maintain my high rating. Unfortunately, this isn't a "fixable" problem if the real problem is a power problem inside the mechanics of the camera. I hope you won't hold that against me when you rate the answer I've given. Thank you.

I own a Canon EOS Rebel XTi. This camera is unpredictable; i.e., I never know when it will decide not to record an image. I have reset it many times to the manufacturer's default settings, and then it SOMETIMES works, but then for some reason stops recording images. I have started to always carry a second camera (a point & shoot). However I am enrolled in a number of photography classes in the new year where I need an SLR. Is this camera issue serious or something I can fix? Thanks.

I have the Canon EOS 400D/ Rebel XTi digital camera. I take a lot of action pictures on sports mode. Lately, the camera started freezing in the middle of a series of shots and will read error-99. I have to shut the camera off and back on, or sometimes even reinstall the battery before I can shoot again. It had been working fine up to now - and the battery is fully charged.

Flashless photograghy I bought a this camera about a month ago.

I'm looking at buying a Canon EOS 400d and wonder if anyont can confirm whether my lens from old Canon EOS 620 film camera body will be compatible. (Unfortunately lens in storage at moment so I can't quote model numbers, but one is Canon 50 mm ultrasonic lens and other is a (I think) sigma 28 to 200 mm)


The canon lens should work fine. Some of the Sigma lenses have to be converted by Sigma to work with digital. The last one I sent to them they only charged me $10 for return shipping. You can find their address online. ... Canon Digital Cameras

Canon EOS Rebel XT with EFS 18-55mm lens. Trouble-free for two years. During a weekend of lots of use, suddenly the camera would not autofocus. Switching to manual focus, the camera worked. Then it started working okay in autofocus. Later that day quit altogether. (Would not release shutter even in manual mode.) Removed the lens and cleaned the contacts on both lens and camera, started working okay but only temporary. Went through several cycles of this over the weekend, so I'm not sure
