No picture on LCD monitor when camera (rebel xt) is turned on


I am not sure what is the problem. You say no"picture"..is the screen totally black? Even when you try to preview photos in your camera memory? If so there is a problem with the hardware, LCD screen battery, or some other part.

If you mean you only see numbers and photo setting information on the LCD, that is normal for this Rebel models. The picture only appears in the viewfinder. It does not have a "live view' function to switch the image from the viewfinder to the LCD while you are shooting, as later model have. I have such a model and it is very disappointing.

HOW DO I WORK A DIGITAL CAMERA?


STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR OPERATING YOUR FIRST DIGITAL CAMERA
1. READ YOUR CAMERA MANUAL before taking any photographs.
2. Check your batteries. Make sure to either recharge or replace them if you haven't used your camera as yet or for an extended period.
3. Insert your storage media card in the appropriate slot. If you forget to insert your media card, you'll get a "No Card" message.
4. Remove the lens cap.
5. Turn the camera on by either an on-off switch or a sliding lens cover.
6. Turn off the LCD. (See your camera manual for instructions)
7. Make sure your camera is set for automatic mode. Set the image quality to the size image desired-HQ (high quality) or less (to take more pictures on the same card).
8. Bring the camera up to your eye and look through the viewfinder. Positioning the target mark in the center of the viewfinder on your subject will assure that it will be in focus.
9. Push the zoom lever toward W (wide angle) to shoot wide-angle shots or push it toward the T (telephoto) to zoom in.
10. Press the shutter button half way down gently and confirm that the green light next to the viewfinder is illuminated.
11. Press the shutter button all the way down. You'll hear a beep when you take a picture. Wait until the green light stops flashing before taking another one. Remember, digital cameras have a slight delay that traditional cameras don't since it takes a second to save the image to your camera's storage media card.
12. Turn off the camera. Your new photograph should appear on your camera's LCD screen.
TIPS:
1. Use the viewfinder to compose your photograph, not the LCD screen, which will severely drain your battery power. Use your LCD screen only when shooting close-up photographs.
2. Hold your camera steady. Sometimes, the least amount of movement will cause your photo to be slightly blurred. Purchase a very small tripod so that you can provide extra stability for your camera. Also, if there isn't enough light (indoors or outdoors), make sure to use your camera's flash.
3. Experiment with your camera's features and take notes so that you can learn what works for you. Do this before you plan to use it for an important family event or trip.

Digital Camera HP Photosmart M517 Want to take a picture of my computer screen to send by email. Flash goes off every time and leaves a bright white light that obscures the screen. Can I disable the flash...


Press the flash button (just under the viewfinder) to cycle through the flash settings. Your choices are Auto Flash, Auto Flash with Red-eye Reduction, Flash On, Flash Off, and Night.

If you want to capture the screen image, you're better off using the computer operating system's screen-capture capability. This will give you the screen exactly as it is, without the distortions inherent in converting to an analog image and then converting it back to a digital image.

LCD SCREEN


LCD = Lousy Camera Device? Get used to using the optical viewfinder. The LCD is great for reviewing images after you've taken them, but it leaves a lot to be desired as a viewfinder. Keeping your camera steady is no small feat at the best of times, but being forced to hold the camera away from your body to view an image through the LCD adds a new level of instability to the picture-taking process.

Viewfinder


Since the viewfinder sees the subject different than the picture taking lens, we recommend using the LCD monitor screen for taking macro pictures. The image previewed on the LCD monitor will be the exact image that is taken.
