Question about Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

New Canon Rebel XS will not show image on LCD screen

Hi folks,
I just picked up a new digital Rebel XS yeterday and really want to use it today. Today is Thanksgiving '08. The screen displays the menu and options fine but will not display an image - yes the lense cap is off. I am a novis with anything above a point and click and just don't know what I could be doing wrong. Please help me so I don't miss getting some shots today with all the family together. I may miss some good shots of a cat fight...
Ben

Have you been taking shots in continuous mode (burst)?  The camera has a built in buffer of fast memory where photos are stored before being written to the slower CF card.  Once the memory gets full the camera will not take another picture unless some of the images complete transfer to the CF card. You will notice a number inside your viewfinder (bottom left) the number goes down when you take a picture that is how much space is left in the buffer when it hits 0 the buffer is full it will go up as the buffer clears.  Note that RAW takes up more space and fills the buffer quickly. 
If you get the "Busy" message even after just 1 shot then there is something wrong with either your CF card or your camera and you should take try another card or it to canon for service.

Please select Auto option to take pictures and just click.
Its DSLR camera and you can't see live view on LCD, you need to see in eye-view finer to take picture. LCD will show recorder picture.

For shooting situations where using the viewfinder is impractical – or where a tripod is used – users can switch to Live View mode, which displays the scene as a smooth, 30fps video feed on the LCD. An optional grid line and histogram display can be selected to help with shot composition and exposure. Two AF modes are available for use with Live View: Quick AF, which momentarily flips the camera’s mirror to engage the AF sensor, and Live AF, which uses contrast information for compact camera-style focusing.

Unless you have the Digital Rebel XS or XSi, you are not going to be able to preview the shot on the LCD. This feature was not available on any digital SLR made before 2007. Compact cameras have always had this feature because they have a different optical architecture than SLRs. If you have the XS or XSi, check in the index of the user manual under "Live View shooting" for specific directions.
