Question about Canon EOS Rebel XS 35mm SLR Camera
Out of nowhere, my camera just stopped taking photos. I recall turning it on after putting it away for a few moments and attempting to use it, but all the pictures are coming out the same way - black. Even when switched to Manual or any other combination of things. The mirror pin doesn't seem to be stuck and I'm at a complete loss. Thank you for any help.

This is a fairly new Digital camera model. A few quick things that could cause your particular problem is that the camera hasn't had a media card installed. The media card may not have been formatted to the camera. The lens is not totally locked in position. Within the menu there is a function that prevents the camera from taking a picture if there is no media card installed. If there is a media card in the camera it may be full of pictures and unable to store any more images. If the media card is not the problem then I would say that the camera is not focusing and without focus the camera will not take a picture. Look for the auto focus confirmation little green dot in the viewfinder it should be a solid green not blinking. Hope this was a help

SOURCE: i have a canon eos
P (program) mode offers customized setting for its user, i`m afraid you`ve changed it accidentally
in this mode, choose menu and set the live view mode to OFF, then start to take picture normally
hope this advice will help

I presume you're asking about a Digital Rebel and not a 35mm film Rebel (as per the question heading).
If so, that's probably normal. It's only relatively recent dSLR models which have a "live preview" facility (often wrongly called "live view"). The whole point of an SLR is that the viewfinder is the main compositional viewing tool; the LCD is there solely to display and adjust camera functions and to review images already captured.
Most current and recent SLR's now have live preview, and all true SLR's are incapable of viewing the image at the actual moment of image capture as the viewfinder mirror must flip up out of the way of the image sensor.
If you want live preview then you must change your camera. if you tend not to use the viewfinder anyway then consider mirrorless Compact System Cameras such as the Olympus and Panasonic Micro Four Thirds models as they do have a true live view capability and the LCD is the main (or only) tool for composing images. Panasonic also have their regular Four Thirds G range, which look like an SLR but have an electronic viewfinder and they are also capable of true live view.
