Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
I just got the Canon EOS Rebel XSI, brand new out of the box. When I take pictures (in all modes, manual, automatic, etc.) the pictures have a red tint to them. I changed the white balance settings, and all other settings, but the pictures still have a red tint no matter what I do. When I turn off the camera and turn it on, the first picture is normal. Then the remaining pictures have the red tint. Any thoughts?
Sounds like a defect in the imager. Take it back asap

Take it back to where you bought it and get them to replace it or fix it under the guarantee.

You have to set the camera to "Live View" mode. Check your manual for settings.
BTW, it's usually a bad idea to use Live View mode unless the camera is on a tripod. With Live View you have to hold the camera out in front of you and it's much less steady.

Are you trying to use the flash when you are having the problem? Were you taking a lot of pictures with flash when the problem started? Rapid pictures with flash can melt the flash and capacitors in the camera. Also, a single drop of water rolling around inside the camera in the right place can do things like that. You can try taking pictures in bright sunlight so the camera will not try to use the flash and see if it will work normally, If it does than something is probably fried in the flash system. Bad thing is that if you smelled smoke something is most likely already fried and will have to be repaired by canon. Canons quality has been going down hill for several years now and they have a lot of quality problems. If the camera has been used very little, has never been abused, dropped or wet and not far out of warranty, try using google to see if this is a common problem and call canon and try to get them to repair it for free. If all else fails threaten to replace it with a Nikon assume pay to have barely used camera fixed.

go to this page, confirm it is taking you to the windows 7 version. previous versions of windows, like Vista, will probably not allow you to transfer photos without first loading this utility.

Actually what I found to solve the problem was to first set the lens in "MF" and practice taking a picture manually to see if that would work. When I did this, I discovered that the fine tuning portion of the lens was somehow stuck mechanically. I heard a loud click as I turned it. That was all it took to fix the focusing mechanism on the lens. Then I set to "AF" and Voila, the camera worked just fine.
