Having problems with your Canon EOS 450D Digital Camera ?

The on/off switch on my EOS 450D is sporatic. I first thought it was the battery but a new battery gets same results. Sounds like a bad connection to me. Is this common and will a cleaning fix this?

Answers :


Well, unfortunately, i don't think this is a problem which will be resolved by cleaning. This is however a bad connection as you stated.

The problem is, you will not be able to buy this switch component separately. As i recall, this modle has nt been released for 3 years, hence, it should still be in the warranty period.

I would suggest that you make sure about your warranty. If still in the warranty period, i would suggest that you take it back to point of purchase. They should repair this switch free of charge.

Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions.

Kind regards

Whenever the camera is shaken slightly harder than gently, the camera will not turn on unless a fresh battery is put in (fresh as in green in the charger), in which case it works fine until it is shaken again. Something sounds like it is loose on the inside. How can I fix this without a $200 repair bill?


Hi, I have two Cannon 40D Cameras and am experiencing problems with both at the moment. One Camera is very slow after pushing the button to take a photo. I have checked all of the batteries and this is not the problem. The other camera will take 4/5 shots without a problem then as I am taking the shot I feel like the camera flutters, the lcd screen shows an error symbol and says the contacts between the lens needs cleaning. When I turn the camera on and off it fixes the problem temporarily but i

Greetings! I'm considering buying your "Hahnel giga T pro" for my Nikon D200. I have a few questions about your product: 1. does it work with the MOP mode in your camera?

I'd like to make an hours long set of 5 minutes exposures (to photograph star trails), can you program your product to do that? 3. what kind of battery does it take? 4. can you fix receiver that connects to the camera in such a way that does not "jiggle

My Canon powershot A1100 IS is not focusing at all. The lens extends when turned on, but when it tries to focus (when set to "Auto"), I hear a clicking sound, as if the motor is trying to adjust the lens, but is not. It sounds like a more serious repair and probably not worth fixing. Anybody have any thoughts what this may be and whether to fix or toss? Thanks! A. Nadell

I have a Casio Watch module #1189. It is a digital alarm chronograph. The battery went dead while sitting in a drawer for many months -maybe a couple years! So I replaced it with the same battery #CR2016. Now it still has no display. I double-checked the polarity and it is correct. I took the battery out and then replaced it several times.

Even with fresh batteries installed, I only get a few shots before the "battery empty" icon appears. Then, if I remove and then re-insert the same batteries, the initial result is a green battery icon which may only give me one shot before the "battery empty" icon appears again. If I use only the viewfinder, I may get a couple more shots. It looks like an electrical problem but what should I do?

Bad Battery My DIgimax 530 has had battery problems for some time now. I know that this problem has not been like this forever. When I put a new battery in, it uses it quite quickly, then says low battery.

Hi, I wrote in a couple of days ago about my camera resetting every time I turn it on. It's a Casio Exilim EX-S500. It appeared that the battery wasn't connecting right. I bought a new battery, thinking it might be the battery itself, but it's not. It's just not catching when I push it in. Is there a way to fix this? It doesn't appear that anything is broken/missing in the battery compartment. Thanks in advance for your help.
