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

Hot and cold..

\015 Hello all,I have had my 350d now for a couple of year, and am currently traveling the globe.. So far I have clicked away a good 45 thousand shots on it.But in the last week i have noticed a rather strange issue, When shooting on any setup (manual or automatic etc), the action of the "menu" and "set" button gets muddled up, i.e. if you click "set" the function of the "menu" button occurs, so you see the menu screen.Then when you select either "menu", or "set" to exit or action a field (AEB, White Balance, Parameters etc) the camera simply refreshes the menu, rather than action what each button should do. "Menu" to return to shooting, and "set" to pull of the field.But this is the really weird thing and has taken me a couple of days to figure out, the problem disappears when i'm in an air conditioned room, such as most of the internet cafes i have been visiting to upload photos etc.Then after returning to the fairly humid outside the issue resurfaces (2/3hrs after leaving).humidity I feel is going to be the problem, but it's only popped up in the last week, and i've been on the Indian subcontinent now for well over 4 months.and if it is a track on the circuit board that's fizz'd, why does it return in air-con'd environments.I presume that this is going to be a servicing repaired issue, but any of your thoughts would be appreciated.John\015

PaulMo's post is a very good possiblity.

Try this:
Reset ALL in the menu, if this camera has one.
That may reset the system, like resetting the bios in a computer.

If that does not work, it may be that some problems need to be attended by a professional camera repairman.

The hot-cold is bothering me in that it sounds like a similar problem which happens in many point and shoot cameras made with Sony CCDs. The connectors became corroded, and caused a lot of problems.
Here is a link to that: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&keycode=2112&fcategoryid=221&modelid=8776
I know that it is not a ccd problem, but if this is a Canon camera, you can get help at the 800 number. BTW Canon has a "trade in" program to give a refurbished camera for your broken one. For many this can be a real help. Some other companies have similar programs.
The keys are like those on a TV remote - conductive rubber contacts.Those can wear out over time, or get oils behind them. The camera should be sent in for cleaning.

Hi hmlee, and thank you for your help. A few more details on my Mavica. We were taking pictures outside in the cold. When we came in the battery was drained, which the manual says may be due to the cold. My daughter plugged it in for a charge but dropped in in doing so. It would no longer charge...not sure if that was due to the cold or the drop. After trouble-shooting, we thought it might just be due for a new battery, so we bought one, but it only flashed when plugged in to charge. We bought a

Your camera uses a PTTL flash system. That means the flash on the camera fires a "pre-flash" to set the exposure and then the main flash. Your flash trigger strobes are reacting to the pre-flash and firing before the shutter activates. This all happe ... Pentax K110D Digital Camera
