The CCD is dead or the lens shutter doesn't open. You have to contact your local Canon service center.
Hope this helps!

First try pressing the "DISP" button. If that doesn't work, try downloading a picture. Is the picture also black? If so,

The Digital Rebel XTi doesn't have 'live view' mode, you can't see what you're taking a picture of before you take the picture.

for the person whose screen is blank but the photos work- I had the same problem and solved it by replacing the smaller date/time battery which slides out of the larger battery copartment. The battery is a CR1220 smaller than a dime and even flatter. Hope this works for you.
