Hi,I can't turn on my 70D, after removing the battery

I got the 70D about a month ago, as a gift, and it worked perfectly until yesterday, when I wanted to charge the battery. When I put back the battery in the camera, I couldnt turn it on. Still can't turn it on. i dont know what to do. HELP please

Removing the battery did not cause the camera to fail. Something else did and without further info it is impossibile to guess.

Maybe your charger is faulty?  Maybe the battery is bad?

It sounds silly, but the effect the OP reports is what one would expect if one forgot to plug the charger in. Instead of recharging the battery, the charger woiuld simply drain away any remaining charge. So it might be worth trying to charge the battery again, making sure that the light on the charger is on during the whole process.

Seems I have read multiple posts about the little battery door getting mis-aligned so it is not making good contact with the battery. You might see if anyone here (or Google) can describe it precisely rather than generally. It would make sense since the only thing you did was to open and close the battery door, really.

WHAT ABOUT MY EYES BEING BAD AND THE ONLY WAY I CAN READ WELL IS IF I USE CAPS. IT HAS NO EMOTIONAL CONNECTION AT ALL... IF I TYPE SMALL, I CANT SEE WHAT IM TYPING. EVERYTHING I DO HAS CAPS ON PURPOSE IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH URGENCY OR NON URGENCY AND I WOULD ASSUME ANYONE HAVING ANY ISSUE WITH A PRODUCT WOULD ASSUME THEIR ISSUE WAS URGENT.

Actually, you can post in text as large as you want without using caps.

Re: Hi,I can't turn on my 70D, after removing the battery

Nearly every web browser allows you to hold CTRL and press either the "=" or "-" keys (just left of the backspace key) and this will either increase or decrease the font size globally within the browser.  It makes things much easier to read.

 

If you're on a Mac, it's the Command key instead of the Ctrl key.

 

In any case... assuming the camera really does have a charged battery inserted, the cameras also have a microswitch in the door frame of the battery compartment and also in the doorframe of the memory card compartment.  if the switch is not engaged then the camera will not power up.  

 

Make sure the door is closed, has a good fit (nothing is blocking it) and that the tab which engages the switch (the tab is in the door) is not damaged.
