Having problems with your Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera ?

Canon XSi not powering up

\015 I have the Canon EOS Rebel XSi 12.2 mp Camera. The Camera worked GREAT when I bought it but it has been acting odd the last few weeks. The symptoms are... at first it would shut off by it's self.. So I though bad/wore out battery. I found a great deal on batteries so I bought 2 of the LP-E5 batteries for the camera. I also Bought a battery grip that will allow me to use 2 batteries for extended shooting durations. However, Since I have bought those items I have not even been able to get my camera to power up. On occasion, if I turn the camera on, I can press the shutter release button and the flash will pop up and looking through the view finder everything appears to be working but nothing shows up on the LCD as far as my settings go. I did buy this on Ebay from a reputable dealer and I had a 3 month warrenty being a refurbished camera. Well the 3 months were up a month ago and I no longer have a warrenty and I am in bad shape. Anyone have any kind of idea what might be going on here?\015

Answers :

It sounds like your problem is why is was refurbished, but they missed that problem.
\015\012Talk to the seller, if no go, threaten to get PayPal involved.
If it has a view finder make sure in the settings that the image is set to show up on the LCD screen also make sure the batteries have a FULL charge which means at least 8 hours of uninterrupted charging before use.

My guess is that with most nice digi cams it is set to not show the image in the LCD viewfinder but rather the actual real time with your eye view finder. look around the menu if you can and see what you can change as far as view finding and if i didn't help please specify the problem a little more and i will be glad to do whatever i can to help.

I have a Canon Rebel XSI. Lately, when I try to turn it on, nothing happens. I know there's a charged battery -- two, actually, because there's a battery grip. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. And sometimes the white balance button will flash repeatedly, even when the power is set to off. I've tried it without a lens. I've tried it without the grip. I've cleaned the gold contacts around the lenses and batteries. Any help would be appreciated.

Try replacing the battery. If that not works then go to any service centre and try removing the static charges. ... Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera

I dropped my canon rebel xsi from about 7feet, but it still took pictures after i checked it. nothing cracked, not the lense, or the screen. but than about an hour later, when i tried taking pictures it said error 99. i took of the lense and tried cleaning it inside, and when i put it back on it still said error 99. it says shooting is not possible. turn the power switch to off and on again, or reinstall the battery. i did those, but the error 99 keeps poping up. i dont know what to do?

It could be several problems. One is a bad contact between lens and camera body, clean the contacts , check for damage and try another lens if you have one. Try another memory card. Another problem could be with the shutter which would need the camer ... Digital Cameras
