This could happen if you're using flash and your shutter speed is set too high. If you're not set to Program or Auto mode, try changing to Program mode and see if that solves your problem.
Otherwise, it sounds like a sensor issue. Call Canon support - I've found them helpful. Check the website for phone number.

When taking a picture with my REBEL EOS the image display only shows the top half and the bottom portion is black. When I download the images they only show the top portion that was seen in the image...


This can be either a mirror or shutter problem. Take off the lens and fire off a few shots while you look inside...you may be able to spot the problem. I don't think you will be able to fix it but a repair facility can.

I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS Rebel XS .

Installation of this Canon EOS Rebel XS firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.
See the firmware instructions and download the firmware upgrade by following these Fixya Tips :

  1. Follow this link to download a pdf version of the firmware installation instruction guide.
  2. Follow this link to download the Windows Version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  3. Follow this link to download the MAC version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  4. Follow this link to download the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D Instruction Manual.

I hope that helps.

Partially black images on Canon Digital Rebel


Most likely a bad CCD. A very costly repair.

Canon 300 EOS images not complete


There is a plastic pin pivot inside the box mirror (right side of it if you see the front of the camera), which allows the sub-mirror to move in one direcction, basically, during the capture process of the image by the CMOS sensor.

The dark or black areas mean that such plastic pivot is either broken or missing (pushed in).

The plastic pin pivot is really very cheap ($3.00), but the problem is that in order to replace it and fix the camera, it is necessary to almost disassemby the camera and box mirror, which maycost between $120.00 - $200.00, depending where you will send your camera for such procedure.

In internet you can Google for some guidelines in how you can repair it yourself, using a standard metal paper clip (forming it with pliers and glueing it to the mirror box) if you think that you can do it yourself.

If your camera has ay kind of warranty, you can return it to make it valid.

Also, if you search in internet, you will find some persons that claim that their cameras out of warranty were fixed FREE of charge (only the paid the shipping) after talk with Canon about the problem.

Bottom line, this repair is time consuming, and needs some degree of skills and experience to open and disassembly the camera, and repair it.

You need to evaluate if you want to spend money on it, or do it yourself.

Best regards,

Canon eos digital canon rebel xti - LCD won't work when shooting


Most DSLR cameras (like your Canon) don't have a live view - in other words, you can't "see" the image before you capture it. You must use the viewfinder.
