Junk it. If not working properly with new batteries, reset, etc. then something is definitely wrong with unit and it is simply not cost effective to repair.

SOURCE: F stop on a Canon EOS 50

The EOS 50 is the same as the EOS Elan II, and you can download the manual here.
Page 54 explains setting aperture in Av mode, and page 56 explains setting aperture in the Manual mode.

SOURCE: Recording stopped working

Beleive the CCD has stopped responding. A cheap way to verify this is to point an infrared remote towards the lens and press a key. This will usually provoke a response from the camera even if all else fails, barring a bad pickup device...accordianman

Try doing a reset in the camera tools somewhere, this fixed a similar problem I had.

SOURCE: New EOS XSi LCD don't work

You have to set the camera to "Live View" mode. Check your manual for settings.
BTW, it's usually a bad idea to use Live View mode unless the camera is on a tripod. With Live View you have to hold the camera out in front of you and it's much less steady.

Pictures that I am taking with my Canon Rebel EOS suddenly were black on 3/4 of the picture. I checked pictures taken in the camera just before this happened and they are OK, so I don't think it

I think there is a problem with the mirror in the camera that lifts out of the way when you hit the shutter. It may be stuck or not fully retracting. Take it into a camera shop and have them check it.

Try updating your drivers. Get them directly from the canon site. Also there are some firmware updates that have taken place since the release of the 350D. I have that camera and it is important to update regularly. When windows updates sometimes it can blow out the driver for your camera.

Date imprint on photocamera

The EOS range does not automatically "imprint" the date/time on the images. Being digital, most of the information can be found in the EXIF data anyway. If you want to print the photos with the date at the corner, I believe ZoomBrowser EX has that function. ZoomBrowser came with your camera amongst a few other CDs (eg Adobe Photoshop Elements, DPP etc)
