Question about Canon Rebel XTi / EOS 400D (body only) Digital Camera

1 Answer

Black LCD screen/ not 'seeing' picture. Canon EOS 400D camera

When I turn on the camera to take picture the LCD screen is black and not 'seeing' what I want to take a picture of. If I press the 'disp' button it flips to the camera settings for the picture, press it again and the screen goes black. The LCD sensor above the screen is working as when I cover it the screen goes blank, uncover it and it goes back to the picture settings. I have tried playing with all the settings but so far nothing has worked. Please help! Let me know any ideas.

    My LCD screen used to show the picture image but it is now a blank screen or it shows the picture/camera format controls instead. How do I get it back to showing the image I want to photograph?

Hi

The Digital Rebel XTi doesn't have 'live view' mode, you can't see what you're taking a picture of before you take the picture.

there should be a button on the camera that says "disp" this stands for display and when you hit that button you should see the image and if you hit it again it will go black again so you can control whether you want see it or not

Canon EOS 400D LCD screen problem


There is no live preview mode on this camera. I am not sure if that is what you are referring to, but you can only use LCD for review and menu, not as a viewfinder.

The new Rebel XSi is the only one in the rebel series with this new feature.

Hope this helps!

NO IMAGE


Check the card isn't set to write protect mode with the switch on it.
I will assume the picture is viewable through the LCD and everything else appears to be normal.

LCD Display


As far as I am aware, the 400D doesn't have a live preview mode.

What you are describing is perfectly normal and is how 99% of digital SLR cameras behave.

Are you sure it used to do this?
