Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm and EF 75-300mm Lenses

2 Answers

Cannon EOS Rebel XS shows busy display stopped working

Just got a brand new camera. Played around with it a few nights to learn all the parts and buttons. Went to a concert tonite. While waiting for the show I took many test shots to see how the camera would work under these contiditions. Used a 75 to 300 Cannon lens. I had just got the settings about right when the show started. All of a sudden the display went dark and "busy" flashed in the view finder. But it would not take any more pictures. Taking the battery out and removing the sd card did not help. The auto focus and flash still worked but nothing else.
This camera is going back to the store if I can't get some help. PLEASE............. Danny

    Same thing happened to me and I'm trying to figure it out too

  • deconblues1 Dec 08, 2008

    Well Circuit City was no help. I had the camera just over a week and they had none in stock. So now I have to wait 3 to 9 business days for them to special order another one. If this is a common problem maybe I need to lool into something differant. Citcuit City's add on warrenty is not what I thought either. I paid $140.00 for a 2 year accident plan that works only once. If the camera breaks outside of the Cannon warrenty "of I guess 90 days" they will replace it one time even if I have a year and a half left. But I have the chance to pay another $140 to add it to the replacement.



    This is something new they just started. I have been buying electronics with warrentys from them for years. I will have to rethink that on my next purchace.

    I have an EOS 1000D - less than 1 month old and I have the same issue. LCD monitor blank, viewfinder 'BUSY'. It seems to autofocus and take an exposure reading but that's it. Can't release the shutter.


  • kahlcke Jan 01, 2009

    Got the same Problem. Need help :(
    The Cam worked for about a week, but now i cant even turn on the display. It always shows "busy" in the viewfinder.

  • itzemerald Jan 02, 2009

    My camera just stopped working and I can't figure out how to fix it. I've tried everything listed here, so I'll probably just have to take it back.

  • aohnesorgen Jan 03, 2009

    I've had an EOS 1000D for about 6 wks now with no problems until yesterday after taking several shots the LCD panel blanked out and I'm seeing the buSY error. I've recharded the battery and removed the card and tried another card but still no luck. I can't make any changes to the settings as I can't see the display. There are also no problems with the battery as I have tried two and the camera still activates and flash works but I just can't take any shots. Hopefully someone has an answer...

  • Anonymous Jan 05, 2009

    i have the same problem thanks

  • icreative Feb 12, 2009

    Same exact problem.
    A few days before, it kept giving me an "Error 99", telling me to take the battery out and turn the camera off and then on.
    (It didn't work)


  • muttdogg5 Feb 15, 2009

    I've had mine for 2 weeks. It died after attatching the EF 55-250 mm lens. Will be making a trip back to the shops tomorrow to get it sorted.

No unless you make a playlist and it is accepted. Making a playlist in YouTube may be easier with an ipad or cheap tablet and a Bluetooth speaker.

I have a Panasonic Lumix T27 and my photos at night parties and concerts always turn out dark and terrible. Can you please tell me the correct settings to rectify this problem and for fast taking shutter...


At night and at concerts, the light level is low. If your camera is on auto, it will try to fire the flash. It's only effective for about 8 feet. Anything farther away than that will be dark. In these instances, it's best to turn off the flash, set the ISO to a higher setting, and set the white balance for tungsten lighting. You'll need to hold the camera steady but you should get better shots.

I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D.

Installation of this Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.

How do u turn off the flash on the olympus fe-170? im going to a clapton concert tonite and i need the flash to be set to off i tried everything and i cant turn it off....please help!...thanks!


Press Right-arrow (marked with the lightning bolt) repeatedly to select the flash mode. In this case, you want the lightning bolt inside a circle with a slash through it, indicating "no flash".

After the concert, don't forget to set it back to Auto, or the flash will never fire again :-)
