Black display When I take a picture or when I move the camera around to prepare for a picture the image on the LCD is black. The LCD is not the problem because I can browse through the images stored in the memory and they appear OK. Thanks in advance for any solution. Andrei

Re: black display

Most likely, this caused by a stuck shutter. Sometimes the shutter can be freed by rapping (carefully) the camera on a desk or some other hard surface. If this doesn't work, then you will have to take it to a repair shop.

What is wrong with my camera?

The display being black can be due to failure of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the card on your PC. If the images/picture is seen to be of good quality, then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.

However if the older images are seen well then the LCD is working correctly and the fault can be failure of the CCD- charge coupled device in the camera. If you have accidently exposed the camera directly to high intensity light / sunlight, then it is possible that it is damaged. Remove the battery and keep the camera aside to reset and try as a last resort. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

When I turn the camera on, the image that I am shooting does not show on the LCD monitor. When I switch the camera mode to view images I have taken previously, they show up but the new images are not...

there are many point you may want to look at.

first, if the LCD does not display the picture you just capture, there is a possibility that the digital module of the device is broken and that it does not show or save the pictures you have recently captured.

if the pictures you recently captured can be viewed on a computer, there is a possibility that the connection between the LCD and the camera is loose. we canot say that tha issue is the LCD since it displays previoulsy captured image.

to work around the issue, it is best if you visit a local repair shop or a technician to have a look at the unit and have it repaired.

as per the cost, it will actually depend on the damage of the device. you may want to put a new camera as one of your options.

Lcd monitor

On a DSLR (digital single lens reflex) like your Rebel, the shutter remains closed until you actually take a picture. The camera cannot display an image on the LCD since there is no way to preview one that has not been captured.
