Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera won't take pictures.

Alright I've had a Canon Digital Rebel XT for about 6 months now and this is the first problem I've encountered. I turn it on, and I'm able to browse photos, change options in the 'menu' option such as ISO, WB, AF, Metering etc. but it will not take pictures and the little pannel/lights inside the lense for focus points, Av, Tv etc. dont turn on, I'v tried my canon 18-55mm lense as well as my 75-300mm lens. I'v tried replacing the battery, memory card, and lens. I als tried the sensor cleaning. It just randomly wouldn't work after i took a picture. I havn't dropped it or anything. Help? Thanks. Karla

Only six month old - warranty claim then. Check out the Tech support at Canon website first.

Need to find drivers for my Canon DS126071 EOS Rebel XT Digital Camera

Having gone over a month without a reply to my query, I assume my suggestion to use a card reader obviated the need for a driver.

My memory card just got stuck in my Canon Rebel XTi. The button to the side of the card is stuck down. Is there a back up release?

Repairing camera is a specialty. so unless you have this skill you'll have to let someone else fix it. i sent my camera to be fixed to: they were reasonably priced and have a 6 month warranty. they're pretty quick also.

No Rebel XT driver for Vista

Try changing the "communication" setting on the camera from "PC Computer" to "PTP"
Menu > Tools2 (wrench/hammer/2) Communication = Print/PTP

Internal memory

To LanaJones123

I'm afraid the Canon Rebel does NOT have an internal memory for storing pictures. Any pictures taken without a card installed will be lost.

I have just got EOS 400 D CANON DIGITAL CAMERA.

If you're talking about seeing the image prior to taking the picture, like on most point and shoot digital cameras, that is NOT a function available on the Digital Rebel, XT, or XTI.

In the communications option of the camera Menu, there are two options to choose from. Try changing the options. one of them works with Canon software to download images.
