Please help I have a 3 month old Rebel XT that I have loved using, have taken 1679 pictures with it. Used it on Tuesday to take some sunset pictures (nice warm night) however today (Sunday) got it out of the bag only to find it wouldn't turn on at all :sad:. Drove round to find an open camera shop, when I did, the very helpful staff (Jessops Portsmouth) let me try my battery in their camera, all OK there and then their charged battery in my camera, still no life. Swapped over for a spare CF and no joy, tried with no CF, still no life.

Please help, is there a reset button, is there a known problem or am I up the creek without a paddle.

Yours

Bob

At this point, the best thing to do is call the only people who will be able to figure it out for sure, Canon. They may have some special way of resetting things, but most likely you'll have to send it in for repair. It's still under warrantly, so at least it will only cost you lost time with your camera, which sucks but is better than having to pay for the repair yourself.
