Question about Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera
The XS has a history of defective main circuits and this sounds like that.
It will have to go to Canon as it requires software to replace and only Canon has it

There are two modes to the XS's Live View system, selectable via
Custom Function 7. Live View is disabled by default, by the way, so
you'll need to find this menu item in Settings Menu 2 to turn it on.
The two options are called Quick and Live modes. Quick mode works as
most Live View modes do, dropping the mirror when you press the AE-Lock
button (marked with an asterisk) to use the conventional phase-detect
autofocus system. This temporarily blacks out the Live View image,
which makes it impossible to know that you're still framing the subject
and holding your AF point in the proper place.
That's why they added the second mode, which they call Live, but is better described as contrast-detect autofocus. This works just like a digicam, reading the image from the imaging sensor while adjusting the lens for the setting that produces the most contrast in the image. A small square appears in the center of the image area, and you can move it around with the cross keys. Just like Quick mode, unfortunately, you have to press the AE-Lock button first until you hear the focus confirmation beep, then press the shutter button to fire. It's a little slower at times than phase-detect mode, but it gets the job done. Live mode is really better for tripod work, where you can place the AF area right where you want it and confirm focus onscreen.
Both modes offer the ability to zoom in on your live view, excellent for confirming focus before capture. Using the Magnify button just right of the AE-Lock button, you can zoom in 5x or 10x, then press the AE-Lock button to focus if you like; but of course you can't confirm framing in that mode.

Zooming is done from the lens on a DSLR, assuming you have a zoom lens on the camera. For example, if your camera came with the 18-55mm lens, you should see the numbers 18, 24, 35 and 55 on the lens barrel with a white index line next to one of the numbers. Turn the barrel to move a different number next to the index line. 18mm is wide angle, 55mm is 'zoomed in'.
