Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

Canon 350D battery drain

\015 I've had my canon 350D for five years now, and it's always worked like a charm. I have the original battery that came with the camera, plus another that I purchased a year or two ago. Last week out of nowhere I'm taking pictures and the original battery goes completely dead. So I switch to the other battery, and at first everything is fine. After taking a few shots with full battery life, I turned the camera off for a minute or two and then turned it back on again and the battery was already flashing a warning that it was nearly dead. I crossed my fingers and ordered a new battery and charger, hoping that it was just a coincidence. But after trying that one out too, I am having the same problem. It happens after I turn the camera off and back on again. \015\012\015\012I have a lot of time and money invested in this camera, so this is extremely upsetting to me. Please tell me if there is something I can do.\015

Answers :

Sounds to me like the moisture then. Look for those little sachets of Silica Gel desiccant, you get them with a lot of electronic goods in the boxes these days.
\015\012Keep one near the lens and one near the camera, they will prevent moisture getting near your precious lenses. I always keep a lens attached to my camera when in the bag, if you unhook everything and just rely on the body and lens caps you may find it makes the problem worse.
\015\012Hope it all works out you, regards

I have verified my Canon A95 drains batteries by doing an amperage test. Starting with new batteries I install them in the camera and then layer a thin copper wire then piece of paper then copper wire and close the battery door. Touching the wires together closes the circuit and the camera functions. With the wires appart I measure the camera amps. The camera measures 0.6 amps when on and 0.14 amps when off. Doing the same test with my A80 Canon yeilds 0.45 amos when on and zero amps when off. T

My Canon powershot SD20 seems to constantly have a drained battery. I have two batteries for it, and each one seems to be good for about five minutes, then the camera says change the battery pack and it shuts off. But when I plug the battery in to charge the green fully charged light comes on within a minute. Are BOTH of the batteries defective, or is this a problem with the camera itself?

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
