Check chapter 5 in the instruction booklet. Set the camera to a creative zone mode, such as" P", "tv", etc. Then go to menu > live view setting and enable it. Then when you want to see the live view, press the set button.

The canon rebel xt does not let you view the subject through the screen on the back. Canon made them all that way.

I cannot see the picture i am tryin to take on the main screen. When i click display to make the text disappear on the main screen all i see is black.


It sounds like you're trying to use Live View.

Possibility 1: Do you mean that you want to use the screen to see a "video" of what you're looking at so you can compose your shot and then click the shutter? If so you want to use Live View. Go into your menu and you'll see one topic called "Live View function settings" in the 5th section (2nd wrench icon). Make sure it says "enable". After that, press menu again to exit and then when you press the Set button you'll see the screen come to life.

Possibility 2: If you mean that you can't see the photo you've ALREADY taken, then you have to press the play button beside the screen (near the bottom). It could be that you've set the camera NOT show the image after it's shot. You can change this in the menu by setting the image display time to a higher number of seconds.

EOS 400D/Rebel XTi doesn't have live view function, so you cannot see the picture you are taking.

New EOS XSi LCD don't work


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.

LCD display isn't on


In order to turn on Live View, first put the camera in one of the Creative Zone modes (i.e. P, Tv, Av, M or A-DEP). Then press the menu button, and scroll to the second settings menu (the second wrench-symbol), then scroll down to "Live View function settings" and press the SET-button. Then scroll to "Live view shoot", press SET, scroll to "Enable", and press set again. Close the menu by pressing the menu button twice.
Now you can turn on and off the live view on the LCD by pressing the SET-button.

Unless you have the Digital Rebel XS or XSi, you are not going to be able to preview the shot on the LCD. This feature was not available on any digital SLR made before 2007. Compact cameras have always had this feature because they have a different optical architecture than SLRs. If you have the XS or XSi, check in the index of the user manual under "Live View shooting" for specific directions.

New Camera, no picture on screen


This is normal for this camera. Think about it. The CMOS chip can't see through the mirror. After the shot is taken the electronic shutter exposes the CMOS chip and makes an image just like exposing film on a film type camera. Once you get used to it you may like it better. In outdoor or bright light situations it's difficult to view the LCD screen to frame the shot anyway.
