Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

2 Answers

Canon Digital Rebel

I am concerned because only the top quarter of the image is showing on the display screen after I take a photo. This is a new problem. The camera was near my computer for more than a day...could this have caused the issue? How do I fix this? The only thing I have tried is switching the lens in case that was the issue...and I tried removing the battery and putting it back in in an effort to possibly "reboot".

This is more common then canon would like to admit. Generally when you send it back to canon it comes back fixed, although the repair note states no problems found.

Re: Canon Digital Rebel

First, try releasing the shutter with the lens off anf the camera set to a long exposure. Watch the shutter through the lens mount to see if it opens all the way. If it doesn't you need a new shutter. This might be covered by Canon's warranty. If the shutter is opening, try to see if something is blocking the CCD. If that is the case, a competent technician should be able to remove the offending piece.

Can not see subject through the lcd screen

Um, no. EOS Rebel is a "single lens reflex" camera. The display on the back does not show live image. Use the viewfinder above it. After you take a picture, the picture will show on the screen for a few seconds.

Delete button not working

Delete button will only work in the PLAY setting (for playing back the images on the LCD screen) OR, immediately after you've taken the photo and it is still displayed on the screen.

When taking a picture with my REBEL EOS the image display only shows the top half and the bottom portion is black. When I download the images they only show the top portion that was seen in the image...

This can be either a mirror or shutter problem. Take off the lens and fire off a few shots while you look may be able to spot the problem. I don't think you will be able to fix it but a repair facility can.

Importing Images

The CR2 suffix means that the picture was taken in the RAW file format, a proprietary format. This requires that the images be processed by a software conversion to be 'readable' by the computer. The EOS Utility software that came with the camera will work, as well as a number of third-party software packages. GOOGLE "raw file conversion Canon digital rebel" to see the options.

The other option is to take your photos in JPEG format (not RAW). Your computer can 'read' any JPEG format image.

Why LCD monitor can not show image


It might be that it accidently change the display time of the picture or turned it off. There is a setting that you can change to display pictures. Check if that might be the problem.

Display window is blank and not showing image being shot

Try pressing the display button when playing back an image. Also check the custom settings menu for your review tiume settings. Mine is set at 2 seconds. Perhaps there is an option not to review the image...though I need to check.

Canon eos digital canon rebel xti - LCD won't work when shooting

Most DSLR cameras (like your Canon) don't have a live view - in other words, you can't "see" the image before you capture it. You must use the viewfinder.

No, the so called 'live view' ( seeing pictures in real time on your LCD monitor ) is available only on the latest models that are coming out now ( Canon D40 and Nikon D3 and D300 have this feature ).
