In my hands is a 350D which will not turn on at all. The battery is fully charged - shows green light on charger and everything is set up correctly as indicated in manual.

Come to turn the camera on and nothing...not even a whimper :cry:

Dodgy battery or dodgy camera?

Expensive repair if its the camera?

Best place to repair? - Send it to Canon?

If you know someone with the same battery try that. My friend had a similar problem with the 350D and it was due to the fact that his battery had fried.

tbrasington - That could be the reason, however no one i know has a battery to fit this unfortunately. Would a camera shop try one out for me or would i have to buy one from them? Damn.

Do the above and if it doesn't work, take out the little 3V battery in the battery compartment to reset your settings, put everything back in and see if it works.

If it still doesn't work, send it in for repair. I've opened up the XT before and part of the power switch mechanism includes a thin little wire weakly soldered to a metal plate. When I was taking it apart I actually tugged this apart with very little effort, and had to resolder it myself, so on yours it may have corroded a bit to disconnect itself. Shouldn't be too expensive.

I think a camera shop won't let you try one of their batteries, BUT they will allow you to test YOUR battery in one of their cameras. So if their camera doesn't work with your battery, it's your battery. If it does work, it's your camera.

EDITED above message to make more sense.

Yeah, I didn't really think it'd work. I was just throwing it out there :P

Do you have a multimeter? You can always check the voltage on the battery to see if it's running at 7.4V

Nope. All inserted and closed properly. Wonder what is wrong with it? :(

Let us know what the shop found out. I had that happen to mine and the external battery pack worked a tad loose. Just tightened it up a little and no more power issues.

Just fixed a problem where switching on resulted in nothing, or sometimes Err 99, or at other times the bottom red light staying on even when the ON/OFF switch was "OFF".
On removing the back cover (11 black screws), a very short silver screw fell out of the casing. It secures a metal screen to the CF card eject lever assembly and was probably creating an internal short as it was loose inside the body.

Whatever, if you can't solve this type of problem, it's not difficult to remove the rear cover and might be worth while before throwing the camera away!

Probably used the "search" feature of the forum.
That's what it's for - to SEARCH.
