Having problems with your Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

Fairly brand new (less than 6 months old) Canon rebel xti - shooting in manual mode, then it gives a low battery message. I switch the battery and nothing. I recharge the first battery and install it, again - nothing. I removed the internal battery and left both batteries out for 30 minutes. Nada. I have barely even used this camera and I am furious. Is there anyone who knows what the problem is? If I seriously have to send it back under warranty already after shooting less than 1000 photos, I a

My Finepix s5700 will not turn on even with new batteries. I slide the turn on button and the green led lights, but then nothing else happens. If I push the preview button, the pictures appear and I can see them all, but if I try to start shooting, the camera turns off again and the screen remains black. If I try to switch between the shooting programs, nothing happens again. I have the camera for about 3 years and such problem appeared just a few weeks ago. Thank you in advance for your cooper

I think I'm going to explode if I hear one more "worn out battery" explanation for what seems to be a pretty common complaint. This is my 3rd camera...all ending up with the same problem. I've had the Canon Power Shot A570 for less than a year. Someone suggested changing the settings...but even with brand spanking new batteries, I can't even get it to last long enough to get into the settings. There is clearly a problem here that has NOTHING to do with the blasted batteries.


Sounds like you have a faulty board in the camera or it could be something as simple as a software upgrade, I know some of the Fuji Hine Pix had the same problem and it was the software. Take it back to the Canon. ... Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera

My Cannon Power shot SX120 is less than a year old, I havent dropped or otherwise abused it. One moment the camera was fine, the next moment it has really bad horizontal lines in the pictures.

I have tried replacing the batteries with fresh ones, even tried a different memory card..nothing seems to help.

Olympus FE170 digital camera shows battery compartment empty with batteries in place I have the same problem. When I place fully recharged batteries in the Olympus FE 170, the camera won't power on at all.
