Having problems with your Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera ?

No power My battery is charge according to the green light on my charger. When I attempt to turn the switch on there is no power to activate the screen etc. Any ideas?

Answers :

Is it possible the camera battery has expired. A light simply means it is receiving power, it does not mean it is storing it.

When I push the power-on button the LCD display briefly flashes on with the "Pentax Optio" screen and then switches off. The lens is stuck half-way open, and the camera will not stay powered up. The battery is fully charged (as well as the backup battery) so that isn't the problem. Is there a "camera reset" procedure for this camera? Other ideas?

Camera jam Ricoh Caplio R5 - tried to switch it on to take a picture, and lens came out part way but the camera then switched off. Flat battery perhaps, so charged battery overnight and tried again with similar results. Lens still part way out, maybe some whirring noises, screen flashes but then camera switches off. Any ideas?

Battery/Power trouble My C-770 is 2 years old and I still have the original L1-10B batterys that came with it. The camera goes through periods of non-use so has not been used excessively. When I put in a newly charged battery the battery indicator says the battery is full, but then take one picture and the light blinks empty and usually dies with the lens out and the ISO numbers still on the screen. I switch the power button into the off position but it generally takes a min before it actuall

Received a new SD990 IS today. Charged battery, inserted and switched on. Blue Canon screen appears but no request to set date and time, and none of the buttons have any effect. After about 30 seconds it powers down again. Seems to me it must have been damaged in transit. Any advice about things to try would be welcome, but I guess I may just have to send it back. Alistair.

Best bet is to send it back for a new one. ... Canon PowerShot SD990 IS / Digital IXUS 980 IS Digital Camera
