i have a Rebel XS and it dosent want to power up.

New Contributor

My Rebel XS wont turn on so one day my finger nail went between the settings dial and the on off switch and it powered up.I thought what i could do and i took a plastic bread tie and slipped it in and it stayed on.Now i just have to refine this.Anyone have the same problem.



Sounds like you could use a new switch. 


I suggest getting it repaired before you short something out, which could cause the battery to supply more current than it is capable of supplying, which could cause it to overheat, which could cause you some real trouble.
