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

Digital Rebel Canon Camera won't power up

\015 Smells like an electrical burn inside of the battery area. I was using in cold conditions (35 degrees) but I don' think that has anything to do with it. Recharged battery and again and still nothing.\015

Answers :

The cold probably does relate to the problem -- when the camera gets cold, then comes inside, condensation (water) collects in lots of nasty places, including the battery contacts. Water can cause all sorts of problems that result in a poor connection between the battery and the camera. The smell is a result of an arc (spark) -- not good, but sometimes fixable. There is probably something like rust (most likely oxidized copper or aluminum) on the contacts. Something rough like a metal nail file should help remove the oxidation (rust) -- turn the camera upside down so the powder falls out. If you can clean off the contacts so they are shiny again, and also on the battery contacts, you might be back in business.

You may need to replace the battery -- if it has shorted out, chances are it won't recharge properly. A BP-11 battery (doesn't need to be Canon branded) is around $15 or less. However, if the battery charger says the battery is charged, and there's no evident oxidation on the contacts, battery is probably fine.

It could be worse. If so, a local camera shop can probably give you the bad new more gently than I :-{
