My 300d just went dead after i accidentally pushed the WB button for a second or two while waiting for the camera to transfer RAW files from buffer to CF card.
I tried fully recharging all my batteries but still the camera won't power up.
It's weekend and I'm still waiting for Monday to have it repaired.
has anyone here experienced the same trouble?
Thanks very much. I just hope this type of problem won't take long to repair and wouldn't cost me much.

Have you tried taking out the CF Card and firing it up without one in.?

Have you tried to remove both batteries (main and settings backup battery) for a few minutes to allow the camera to forget its state and settings?

That's just ridiculous how something like that can happen. I'm wondering where all the quality control has gone these days.
