Hi, I've a Canon EOS 300D and it just happens to close after some time of using it. The only way to get it work again is turn it off, wait 1 min or 2 then turn it back on. Pretty annoying.

Any advice????????:O:O:(

Have you checked the power-off setting in your 300D?

Press Menu, third column across, first item Auto Power Off gives you a choice of several settings so hopefully it won't have gone dead when you need a quick shot.

Having turned off though it should only take the 3 seconds (?) to come fully alive again and not the time you mention. Good luck!

Hi there,

Mine also auto shuts off after about a minute of non-use. It's a feature to help save on battery power. You don't have to shut the camera completely off...instead, all you need to do is press your shutter button down halfway to turn it back on. The power must be set to 'ON' to do this....hope this helps....
