Could be defective. Black display can be caused by a bad digitizer in the lens, or the lens shutter could be stuck closed. Either one will require lens service or replacement.

Cannot see through viewfinder or LCD Screen


Does it still shoot photos "in the blind?" No, I do not know what is wrong. If you were to have said only the LCD screen was broke, that can often can be an easy do it yourself fix. There is a company on ebay, I think there store is in Illinois, that sells brand new screens for only 15 bucks. On youtube there is video that shows the surprisingly simple repair. Only tool you really need is a super tiny phillips screwdriver, one small enough for eyeglass repair, and be darned careful not to lose the tiny screws! But in your case the repair may or may not work because you say the viewfinder also is on the fritz. Best of luck.

Hello, could you help me please? On a canon 350D how do you switch beween evf to lcd when composing a picture? I cannot find any button that facilitates that function.


On cameras like these you cannot compose a picture on the LCD screen. You have to use the viewfinder and check the results on the screen afterwards. The viewfinder is not actually an electronic viewfinder, you are looking through the lens via a mirror as was the case on film cameras. When you press the shutter the mirror swings up and lets the image through to the ccd chip just as if it was a film camera.

Not seeing anything through the viewfinder when switched on


Most cameras and video recorders now display picture either through the viewfinder or the LCD screen.
Your camera model allows the same. Although if you turn the lcd screen towards the subject (screen faces the same direction as the lens) then the viewfinder switches on.

Blank screen


Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP (Display) button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off in picture taking mode to save battery power. You could then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn it back on, just the DISP button one more time.

Lcd screen stays on and cannot see subject


"Live View", where you can see and compose your picture on the LCD, was not available on any digital SLR before 2007 (the Rebel XTi came out in late 2006). So you need to compose your picture using the optical viewfinder, take your picture, and the picture shows up on the LCD after you've taken it.

But it's still faster than having to wait until the film is developed. :-)

LCD SCREEN


Do you have a picture showing in the viewfinder when the LCD is closed? If not, it's a bad CCD and I believe Canon will fix that for free if you call customer service.

No picture in LCD or viewfinder


Flexwire in electronic viewfinder (EVF) is broken, you need pro fix.
