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

Canon Rebel XT wont fully come on

\015 My camera will not fully activate. When you attempt to turn it on, the small lcd screen comes on then dissapears and shows a full battery logo. This is all it will do. It shows the battery logo until you remove and replace the battery. Batt is fully charged. Last thing i was doing with it was using sports mode to take pictures, then it just froze up. Removing the battery at that time and replacing it showed error 99. now it wont even do that. intermittently the cf light will also light up with the battery light described above. wont turn on with or without the cf card. tried cleaning contacts. nothing. please help!\015

Hi
\015\012
\015\012Error 99 is usually a lense error and gives the only real clue as to what is going on with your camera. You can try this simple fix which comes straight from Canon. Follow the steps to help isolate the issue. Note the fact that you are currently not getting the Error 99 is probably a good sign according to the troubleshoot.
\015\012
\015\012To isolate the cause of the issue, we suggest that you do the following:
\015\0121. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
\015\012Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
\015\012
\015\0121. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
\015\012Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
\015\012If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
\015\012
\015\0121. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
\015\012If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is
attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
\015\012
\015\012If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the
camera should be serviced.
\015\012
\015\012Hope this helps. Please do rate my answer. Thanks.

I'm trying to charge my Canon battery for my Rebel XTI camera. I have a Canon Battery Charger for LC E5. The Battery pack is LP-E5. The battery fits into the charger and a red light comes on. It doesn't flash. It remains constant. I've had it in the charger for 4 hours, and it doesn't turn green. Is the battery fully charged if there's a constant red light and no green light? Thank you.
