My camera Canon 5D Classic or Mark I doesn't turn on. :(

[ Edited ]

Hello I am Samuel leaving in Haiti. I am a newbie but a really close to a pro because i am giving my all to photography.

unfortunately my camera "Canon 5D Classic or mark I" stop working this morning. can't keep my tears guys cause it cost me a lot of money and i just have it for 5 months. (of course it was not new). 

 

Only the LCD screen on the top works but the light doesnt turn on.

 

Could someone help me to understand the issue? help me know if its something that i can fix?

 

Help any advice is welcome because i still can't keep my tears.

 

PS: I am doing photo just for fun, not for money. 

 

action taken:  wanna also let you know that I removed the batt for the night, the memory card, removed the lens, i do anything related to a simple troubleshoot. 

PS: it doesnt have the small memory batt at all.

Sounds like an elecrtrical problem inside camera. Do you have a Canon service facility nearby?

I just checked. It looks like Canon no longer services the 5D. If you can't get service in Haiti at an independent service company it will probably not be cost effective to ship it for repair.

Not sure if this piece of information will help. PLease try to locate the internal clock/back up battery and replace it. Also make sure that your BP511/511A is working.

You have to put one back in. Without that backup battery, the camera may not work.
