You need to switch the camera to the Live View mode. Full details are in the "Live View Shooting" section, beginning on page 95 of the manual.

SOURCE: Cannot preview shots in lcd with new Canon Rebel xs 1000d

There are two modes to the XS's Live View system, selectable via Custom Function 7. Live View is disabled by default, by the way, so you'll need to find this menu item in Settings Menu 2 to turn it on. The two options are called Quick and Live modes. Quick mode works as most Live View modes do, dropping the mirror when you press the AE-Lock button (marked with an asterisk) to use the conventional phase-detect autofocus system. This temporarily blacks out the Live View image, which makes it impossible to know that you're still framing the subject and holding your AF point in the proper place.
That's why they added the second mode, which they call Live, but is better described as contrast-detect autofocus. This works just like a digicam, reading the image from the imaging sensor while adjusting the lens for the setting that produces the most contrast in the image. A small square appears in the center of the image area, and you can move it around with the cross keys. Just like Quick mode, unfortunately, you have to press the AE-Lock button first until you hear the focus confirmation beep, then press the shutter button to fire. It's a little slower at times than phase-detect mode, but it gets the job done. Live mode is really better for tripod work, where you can place the AF area right where you want it and confirm focus onscreen.
Both modes offer the ability to zoom in on your live view, excellent for confirming focus before capture. Using the Magnify button just right of the AE-Lock button, you can zoom in 5x or 10x, then press the AE-Lock button to focus if you like; but of course you can't confirm framing in that mode.

SOURCE: i have the sd1000 power

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

One thing, you mentioned that the lens error occurred after you wer able to take a good picture. This really sounds like your battery ran down during shooting, and did not have sufficient power to properly shutdown the camera. Focus on your battery as the potential cause first. Note that if the battery is older than a couple years, it may be time for a new one. Rechargeable are not meant to last indefinitely.

Batteries won't hold charge.


What batteries are you using and how large a picture are you taking. Set the picture quality lower. 300X300 is fine for up to 8X10 enlargements. If you are using the preview screen for each shot, that uses battery power too. Don't use cheap batteries. They will let you down. Duracell or Energizers will give you better service than other batteries.

LCD shows MEMORY LOCKED even thought card is NOT LOCKED!


Go thru all the pages on the camera setup in the camera. You may find a memory lock conrol. That is there to keep you from accidently erasing photos.

New Camera, no picture on screen


This is normal for this camera. Think about it. The CMOS chip can't see through the mirror. After the shot is taken the electronic shutter exposes the CMOS chip and makes an image just like exposing film on a film type camera. Once you get used to it you may like it better. In outdoor or bright light situations it's difficult to view the LCD screen to frame the shot anyway.
