Canon EOS 350D/XT Power Problem


\015 My camera is about 18mths old and has fired about 7500 shots. The camera won't turn on.\015\012\015\012A charged battery (around 8.5V) inserted into the camera will drop to 3-3.5V straight away. This is with or without turning the camera on.\015\012\015\012Tryed with known good batteries with same effect (ie dropping over half voltage).\015\012\015\012It sounds like there is something inside drawing lots of current. It looks mostly surface mounted devices on the inside so will be hard to trace.\015\012\015\012Anyone got any suggestions? or a repair manual / circuit diagram?\015

I have a Canon EOS, 1000D which I purchased in Feb 09. I have an error message coming up on the screen everytime I take a shot (which doesn't record). The error is a Err 99, "Shooting is not possible. Turn the power swith to OFF and ON again or reinstall the battery." Which I have done and the problem seems (at this stage) to be fixed. Is it just a battery problem or is there someother problem with the camera it's self. SJ


I did some digging and found that this error is most often a lens communication error. Are you, by chance using a non-Canon lens?Try the following:1. Remove the lens and take a picture without any lens on. If you get an ERR ... Canon Rebel XS / Eos 1000D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm f& EF 75-300mm f Lens

Canon EOS 3000V The film is blank when developed. there a few smudges in a couple of corners but that is it. Man in shop said it looked like a shutter problem. could this be caused by low battery power?


Dust on the image sensor of a digital camera will show up as a dark spot in the same location of every frame. The sensor is a delicate piece of equipment and you need to clean it to solve your problem .... I dont think poor battery can cause a smudge ... Digital Cameras

After I have detached my external flash (Nissin Digital Speedlite Di622), my Canon EOS 60D does not recognize the fact that the external flash is already detached. Thus, this does not allow the built-in flash to pop out when needed. I have tried turning the power off and on again. The problem persists.

EOS Rebel XT. About two years old. Stops working. NO power. Tried new batteries,cleaned contacts. Canon Lenses only. Occasional Code 99 but not necessarily at the same time. Tried all the normal fixes for the code. Problem is Very intermittent, but when it fails it's DEAD.Sent it to a repair shop. He had it for six weeks and it never failed.

I bought digital Canon EOS Rebel XT two years ago, and I have really big problem with AF. I got one half of the pictures fuzzy. Sometimes the green light is on, I took the picture and it is fuzzy. Next shot is fine. I never have this kind of problem with Canon Rebel ( not digital). Now I can't rely on Auto Focus at all. Please explain to me where is a problem. Thanks, Irene

Hello I have a canon IXUS 960 IS. Yesterday when I was using the camera it only closed half way when powering the camera off. Now the camera doesn't open fully and when pusing the "play" button the power goes on and off straight away. At first I thought this was a problem with the battery so I have fully charged the battery and the problem is still the same. What do I need to do to correct the problem? Thanks

My LCD screen on my Canon Power shot G3 is blank (just white). There are no icons; no viewing of things I wish to photograph. I called customer support they said there was no problem with the CCD image sensor on G series cameras per the Canon service letter of 10/6/05.I would have to pay about $135 plus shipping to get it fixed or trade for another camera which would cost me money also. I'm not happy with this because I assumed that Canon would fix the problem if it appeared on the G series. Ple

The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing.
