Power on problem on 50D
Chat conversation start
When I place a fully charged BP-511A into my 50D, the blue light in the live view button lights up, even before I have closed the battery compartment door. When I closed this, the camera will not power up and the blue light in the live view button stays on. Sometimes the camera does power up and functions normally but the blue light in the live view button remains on, even after powering off.
I have cleaned all the contacts on my 2 batteries, the contacts in the battery compartment, replaced the CF card with a newly formatted one, cleaned the contacts on my lenses and the lens contacts on the camera body. I have also replaced the back up battery.
If anyone has had this problem, could they let me know the solution please. I would rather not go to a Canon repair centre as the cost would be beyond my limits.
Thanks for any info,
Is this a good question?
