Canon 40 d wont turn on with newly charged battery

\015 Used it sunday-took flash card to store-left camera in car in cold all night-have inserted 4 different batteries and camera wont turn on at all\015

Answers :

The low temperature block the camera and for that reason doesn't work. This is not a battery problem. The trick is that you're supposed to let electronics warm up to room temperature and then some before turning them on. The recommended time is about 6 to 8 hours. The reason for this is that when you take a warm item into cold air moisture can create condensation on the item. This water can cause a short in the electronics. In below freezing weather that condensation can then freeze, so when you bring an item in from freezing cold you need to give the condensation time to melt and then evaporate before turning on the item.
\015\012Leave the camera at normal temperature and this will be unblocking the camera.
Does the battery pack plug directly into the camera? wanted to try an alternate power source if possible, if nto are the batteries recharable, if they are recharge the newest one, just to make sure t has a charge. I know you tried 4 batteries but, even though remote, there is a chance they all were dead. Just want to make sure first, was there any condesation on the lense when you got it out of the car or on the bode itself?

I'm trying to charge my Canon battery for my Rebel XTI camera. I have a Canon Battery Charger for LC E5. The Battery pack is LP-E5. The battery fits into the charger and a red light comes on. It doesn't flash. It remains constant. I've had it in the charger for 4 hours, and it doesn't turn green. Is the battery fully charged if there's a constant red light and no green light? Thank you.

I have a canon SD1100 I just purchased and after a few minutes the camera will not shut off, the power button won't work and I have to open the battery cover to turn it off. Somehow this completely drains the battery too every time even if it was just charged. Also the camera turns itself on by itself about 10 minutes after you put the battery in it and once again you can't turn it off. I got another battery and the same thing happens. Otherwise it works fine.


If this is a new camera, you should be running back to the store to return it. ... Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera
