Re: CANON REBEL XSi menu and settings display goes crazy...
Set the Mode dial to P, then press the Menu button.
Press the right arrow button on the back of the camera until the sixth menu is selected.
Press the down arrow to select Clear settings.
Figure 1-2. From the Clear settings menu, you can reset the camera to the factory defaults, which will make it easier to follow along with the instructions in this book.
Press the Set button to execute the Clear settings command; then select Clear all camera settings and press Set.
The camera will ask you to confirm the operation. Select OK and press Set.
Then choose Clear all Custom Func. and reset those as well.

In order to have your "External" flash work on your Rebel XSI, you need to go into the menu and turn on the external flash function. If you dont know how to enter into the menu mode, refer to your operating manual.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
