Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
Screen blanking is often a part of the power saving profile. Have you tried changing this in the Tools menus? You should be able to alter the screen blanking time out to a longer period or a disabled setting. I suspect yours is very brief.
The battery packs for the Canon EOS line are very very good and can handle the screen always being on until you close it and use the view finder instead.
Let me know if this is on target or not as the only other reason would be a faulty battery pack. These packs have chips in them that send the battery strength signal back to the camera. And if the camera thinks the battery is critical low, it will default to turning off the screen right away.
Give me a hint if this makes sense in your case or not. I can check if its a known problem of your model.. So, on your camera label there shold be a version number for your 400D, that would be helpful too.
