I have a Canon XSI Rebel that I bought new 2 years ago. For some reason when I'm in AV mode I cannot seem to get the ISO down to 100. Is there a setting that I may have missed? When I have the cam


The AV mode is for setting the aperture (ie Depth of Field).
To change the ISO setting turn the Mode dial to the P position and then turn the Main dial (next to the shutter button) to the ISO setting you require.

Takes pictures but you cannot see image in lcd screen


This model only lets you see the image in certain modes. Test if it is properly working by changing the image mode to "P" and pressing the "Set" button (its in the middle of the arrow keys if you're having difficulty finding it. That should display the image on the LCD screen.
If that doesn't display an image, press "Menu" (upper left hand corner) and press the right arrow 4 times to get to the wrench with two dots menu (says "LCD brightness" on the first line. Press down 5 times and select Live view function settings and press "Set". Make sure the first line is set to enable. This should resolve the issue.
Please leave feedback if this was helpful, thanks.

Canon eos rebel xsi screen is black when taking a picture but shows picture afterwards..Menu works also so screen works but just black when trying to take a pic..


Set the shooting mode to a Creative Zone mode. Press MENU to enter the menu. Under the Setup tab, select [Live View function settings] then press SET. Select [Live View shoot] and press SET. Select [Enable] and press SET. Press MENU to exit the menu. Press SET. The image should now appear on the LCD instead of through the viewfinder.

Refer to "Live View Shooting," Chapter 5 in the manual for more details and the limitations of the LiveView mode.

How do I switch from the view finder to the lcd monitor on my canon rebel xsi


You must be in P, Tv, Av, M, or the A-DEP modes.

Enable Live View in the camera’s Menu.
On the second set-up menu screen go to
“Live View function settings” then "Live View Shoot"-> enable.
After this all you need to do is press the Set button.

How do you bracket with the canon xsi slr?


This Can only be done in the non-auto modes of the Camera (P to A-Dep). Press the Menu Button and navigate to the second list/Menu there will be a option called AEB press on this and set the amount. Also make sure the Camera is in Continuous shot mode (press the Drive mode button left of the SET button).

The AEB (Automatic Exposure Bracketing) settings will be lost the next time the Camera is turned off.

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.

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.
