I have a canon 60d that I have used problem free for the past two years..never ahd a single problem out of it.. i recently used the grip with two block batteries..and when i went to put the regular battery door back on..its not powering on at all. no lights..no error code.. nothing.. i figured it was the battery was dead.. i charged it.. i tried the other battery.. then i tried with the grip, and tried 6 AA in the other grip insert.. nothing. i figured maybe the battery door switch was messed up so i tried manually pressing the little switch and nothing.. i have christmas mini shoots this weekend.. please help!

I would have guessed the door switch as well.  Did you double check that the SD card door is securely latched?

 

I don't really know what to suggest if it isn't one of the microswitches, you'll probably have to send it in.  Was it a Canon grip or a third party?

canon grip i beleive.. ive used it for years with no issues.. ive not done anything out of the ordinary.,,. i was using it fine a few days ago

 

Also check the memory card door... it similarly has a switch.

Just to be clear. Since removing the grip, the camera won't power on either with the grip on or with the grip off. Correct?

right.. i dont think it had anything todo with the grip..but thats just the sequence of events...  i think its the camera or the switch.. i called customer service and they want me to send it in for repair.. any idea what that might cost me? i really cant afford alot of money to repair.. :[
