Having problems with your Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera ?

Why won't my canon eos 500d turn on for the first time? We have charged the battery and inserted it as instructed, but there is no power at all. We've changed the lens and fiddled with everything and still there is no power. Please help :)



Answers :

If I were you, I'd bring it to a service center, or return it immediately to where you bought it because if you pro long the period that you have it they may not allow you to return it. If its under warranty then get that just don't touch it anymore.
