Having problems with your Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera ?
Canon 40D can not turn on
\015 My 40D cannot start up. There is no response when I push the On/Off button. It remains the same after changing to the full-charged battery which came with the camera.Thanks for your help.\015
Same problem. Fully charged main battery. In my case, I hadn't used the camera in over 6 months. All I did was pull the main battery and then pulled the small CR 2016 button cell battery located inside the main battery compartment and re-inserted both batteries. The camera made a quiet click and then turned on with the main power switch and asked to reset the date and time. Works fine now. If this doesn't work just purchase a new button cell.

E18 my canon powershot A150, got the whole E18 problem, it turns on with the blue canon screen, but then two seconds after it turns into a faded black with E18 in the bottom left hand corner. i seriously dont know whats wrong, and it hasnt even been a year since i got the camera, is there any way i can fix this problem? because at the moment buying a camera, my parents would not be too pleased :| it turns on with blue screen then it goes black and it says e18
E18 is the canon fault number for lens error. Is the lens stuck out? does it click when the camera is switched on? Try lightly tapping the lens on a hard surface. This sometimes resets the lens. If all this fails take it to bits! (but watch the flash ... Canon PowerShot A400 Digital Camera

Canon A510 Powershot camera will not stay powered on when I turn it on in picture-review mode. It comes on for a second --> Canon screen flashes on -- and then shuts off. In picture-taking mode, it seems to be fine. It stays on. But if I switch to review mode, it turns off. I've changed the batteries. It was fine last time I used it, last week. I left it plugged into the PC for a few days, if that makes any difference.
These cameras have capacitors built into the circuitry. A capacitor holds a higher voltage so the camera will operate when in use. Some modes in these cameras do need a higher voltage to work. The capacitor for the review mode is weak and will need t ... Digital Cameras

However the lettering is black (not white like the others) and we cannot get on it to turn "Date Stamp" on. You Camera User Guide is useless. Please advise how to turn the Date Stamp feature on.
