Question about Canon EOS Rebel XS 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

No image on LCD monitor

We just received our brand new Canon EOS Rebel XS and are perplexed on why there is no image or anything on the LCD monitor. When we take a picture, it shows for a second then the screen turns black again. We charged the battery, are reading the manual and can't seem to get anything working. Please help, as this is my Christmas gift. :(

Mahalo nui loa,

It sounds like your camera has the review time setting set to a short value like 1 second. Look in your user manual for Review Time and then follow the steps to change the review time setting on your camera. If this doesn't solve your problem, it would help to know:

1) Do you have your user manual?
2) What do you have the Review Time set for?
3) If you go to playback mode can you see the picture for a longer time?
