    My viewfinder is fine to review pics already taken, but screen is black when trying to take a pic. If I take a pic, it is black.

My camera shows black on the screen and view finder but when I download the memory card the pictures are there?


This may seem silly, but is it possible that you're accidentally turning the camera on to camera mode rather than review mode with the lens cap on? That would explain a black screen without being able to view images on the card. Just a thought.

Won't turn turn on. A red and green light comes on, but nothing on the screen.


Step one: Reset the camera
  1. If you have an optional memory card installed, remove it.
    NOTE: Although removing an optional memory card is not necessary for performing the reset, it eliminates the memory card as a possible cause of the problem.
  2. Remove all batteries from the camera for at least five seconds.
  3. Reinsert the batteries and close the Battery/Memory card door.
  4. After verifying that the camera works without an optional memory card, reinsert the card if you removed one in Step 2.
Try to turn the camera on. If it now works properly, the camera experienced a temporary electrical problem and should now work properly.

Canon 40D LCD Wont come on buSY flashes in view finder


Okay, this is simple. Your camera can take several pictures at one time in a burst. However when you release the shutter button your processor takes a second to actually SAVE the pictures to the card in the camera. One thing than has helped me in my wedding photography business is to buy the fastest speed cards I can find. It significantly reduced my "busy" time.
