I am having an issue with my 300d camera. It will not power up. I have checked the batteries and even took it to my local camera shop. They say that it is not a battery issue. They said that they can send it in for 200.00 to have canon just look at it. Is there any other option for me? I am wondering if I just upgrade to the new XSi. I just hate throwing good money after bad. They checked in inside backup battery and that was low, but that should not cause the camera to not power up - right? I was thinking that was for the cameras time and date settings.

Thanks in advance

It is not clear from your post if you have tried a new battery, or if the store tried a new battery. Sometimes batteries just go dead, so before anything, you should try a new battery. Preferably at a store so you don't have to buy it.

$200 just to send it to Canon sounds a little steep. I bet you can go cheaper going directly through Canon. Just give their customer service number a call and see what they tell you.

From the Canon Website:

For toll-free technical support, please call 1 (800) 828-4040 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 midnight. EST, Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m., excluding holidays).

I had the same thing happen to my 300 and it wa repaired by Canon for $200.00. It was a "power board" or something like that.
