Hi,

I have a Canon 600D. I have had it for almost 2 years I think (not 100% sure). It was working fine for most of the time, but recently I think I had left it on and drained the battery. I recharged the battery and now it doesn't turn on. How can I get this fixed? Also, I had a SD card shell break while in the camera and I used something to get it out, but now that I shine a light in I can see that one of the pins is bent. Could this be the problem?

Thanks

SD card - probably no good.
not turning on - either the battery is dud or the camera is dud. hard to know

Replace the battery - get one off trademe - some are good, some are bad. You'll probably have to send the camera to Canon to have the pin repaired - their turnaround time generally isn't too bad, and prices... well... it'll cost more than you'd like, but less than a new camera.

DSLR cameras usually have a small internal battery too. If you replace that it may turn on.

... and it appears it isn't exactly user replaceable on more recent ones, including the 600D.

Small battery failure would probably result in loss of settings, but not inability to turn on. Replace the bug battery first, it's the cheapest option, then send it to Canon if the cards don't work properly.

Did both happen at the same time? The bent pin in the SD slot could be short circuiting, and either damaged the camera, or some sort of safety feature of the camera is preventing it from turning on to prevent damage.

You can get the memory card module replaced I did it thru eBay with my 2004 model Nikon D70 last year now hasn't stopped a beat but I do have a D600 much more modern quality.  Think the part cost me maybe $70 incl delivery.  You would need to some how adjust the pins with a tweeter or something so it might not short circuit ...
