Customer Question

How do I fix my Canon EOS Rebel X S Film Camera? It keeps saying that the batteries are low when you put fresh batteries in there. I heard that the connectors on the camera go bad after a while. Do you know how to fix it?

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Try cleaning the terminals in the battery compartment, after removing the batteries, first by rubbing off with a fresh pencil eraser, then by wiping the terminals off with cotton swabs moistened in rubbing alcohol, then letting them dry off for 5+ minutes with the battery compartment door open, then try turning the camera On again.

Does that help? it might. Let me know, please, in Reply To Expert. Thanks.
