Question about Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

I can't view or upload the pictures I have taken on Manual mode only. I take the CF card out to view and upload the pictures I need, but when I tried to do so tonight, the manual mode pictures do not show up and I am unable to do anything with them. I need these pictures for a photo class, and have never had this issue before because I have only shot in full automatic mode. I love my pictures on full manual mode, but am confused as to why I can't view or upload them to my laptop.

    I can view the pictures on the camera itself, but when I take the CF card OUT of the camera to upload them to my laptop they are in a format that my laptop software does not recognize, or my viewing system is out of date.

Check to see whether you are saving them to an unusual location on the CF card. If you are finding the image files from the card but just cannot open them, you may have taken the pictures as "raw" format images. If they are in "raw" format, you may need special software to open them on the computer.

SOURCE: canon 5d cannot format cf care

Hi there, did you check the card itself? SD cards have a locking switch on the side. Move the switch from locked to unlocked. Put it back in the camera and see if that helps.

SOURCE: Canon SD1000 display is black while the camera in shot mode

After some inspecting of the camera it seen the issue lies with the lens, not the camera itself so don't go banging the camera up or you might damage some other part and the camera will be broken for real. Inside the lens is a closer which block the internal system from capturing image. The closer look just like the one you see before turning on your camera but it's smaller and it's inside the lens way in the far back. Look carefully and you'll see it - you will see the closer if your screen is black while in capture mode otherwise you will see a nice round glass (the internal lens for capturing image/video).

Think of if like this, imagine an eyeball with its eyelid close. That's what happened when the screen is black while in capturing mode.

HOW TO FIX IT: In order to fix the black screen while in capture mode and cost as little damage to your camera as possible, simply turn on the camera in either picture or video mode and look inside your lens, there should be a closer in the far back end. Gently hit the lens a few times until you don't see the closer no more and only a round glass and your camera should begins capturing image and video again.

Good luck to you all. And remember don't use anger to force your camera to works or you will regret it.

If the menus and icons look normal, but images are distorted or discolored, you may have an image sensor (CCD) problem. See Canon's service notice regarding this issue here. Canon will repair your camera at no cost regardless of warranty. Contact them at your regional Canon service agency.

Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

I have a nikon d5100, when I take a picture the live view screen is black. I can view the pictures saved on my memory card but not the pictures currently taken! How can I fix this problem?


The normal mode for this camera, as it has been for SLRs for half a century, is to use the viewfinder to compose your pictures. If you want to use the Live View feature, you need to activate it by rotating the Live View switch beside the mode dial. Full details are in the "Live View" section of the manual (begins on page 99 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from

Cannot detect cf card


You've certainly done the right things in narrowing the fault down so that's a great help.

Have a look down into the CF card slot, there should be two perfectly even rows of contact pins (two rows of twenty-five each). If any are bent (usually flat) or if there are gaps or obviously broken pins then you have found your fault. If so, the camera needs to go into an authorised Canon service centre to have the CF contact assembly replaced and you need to check your CF card to ensure that there are no broken pins left inside it (probably not as you've already used it in other cameras, but double-check anyway). Unbending a flattened pin usually breaks it off or just leaves it weakened sufficiently to break off in the near future; the broken pin can end up stuck in the CF card, and when you insert the card into another device the blocked hole bends or breaks the pin on the next device.

If there's no obvious damage then to completely eliminate the possibility of the CF card being faulty it's worth giving it a full format in either another Canon EOS model or via an external card reader (remember to back up any stored images first). If that fails, try to borrow another CF card to check whether that works in your camera. If not then the fault definitely lies with the camera.

At this point the only remaining option is a camera reset but it's unlikely to work. Your camera must be in the Creative Zone mode (P, Av, Tv, M, or A-Dep) to do this as all menus are then available. Go to "Clear Settings" in the camera menu, you'll see how to do this in the owner's manual. A word of caution: it's been a long while since I did this myself, so I don't recall whether this resets the camera image file numbering back to zero. If it does then every time you try to upload photos from the CF to your host pc there will be usually be messages warning you that the file(s) already exist(s). This means that you'll have to rename everything. To overcome this, you need to find a jpeg (picture) file, preferably one taken with your camera, and rename it to the number before where you want to restart from. So if you want the new files to start at IMG_2000, rename the file to IMG_1999). Then, using an external card reader drop the renamed jpeg file onto the CF card in the 100CANON folder (the number actual number may be anywhere from 100CANON up to 999CANON). Any further photos will be taken from the correct number onwards.

If all of the above options fail then your camera must be sent to an authorised Canon service centre for fault diagnosis and repair. If you're in the UK then click here for the UK service centres. Repairs will be free if your camera is still under the Canon warranty, but as it's only one year from the date of purchase it's likely to have expired on your 400D. The service centre will make a diagnosis and inform you of the likely repair costs; if you choose not to go ahead then the camera will be returned to you after you pay a small fee for postage and for the work already undertaken to investigate the fault.

Good luck with this and I hope that you soon have your camera working again. I hope that my reply has been of use and that you please spare a moment to rate my answer.

File errors


http://www.samsungcamera.com/popup/download.asp?prj_uid=741&prol_uid=4153
Download the english manual version pdf file and open with adobe reader go to page 84.
When you upload a file that is not taken by this camera to the removable disk, the [File Error!] message will be displayed on the LCD monitor in the play mode, and nothing is displayed in the THUMBNAIL mode.

Make sure that the memory card is formated in the camera not the memory card reader on the computer. Make sure you save your edited files in jpeg file format. Avi for movies. The manual makes it sound like the camera will not read altered files or files not taken by the camera itself. edited files are not files taken by the camera. Good luck I hope this helps.

Only uploads certain photos?


Does your computer have enough space for all of the files? If you've checked that it does, you might try using a different program, such as Adobe Bridge. As a Canon user Canon's Digital Photo Professional is free (unlike Bridge), and it can allow you to see thumbnails of the images on your card. I've heard from other users to be sure you're using your camera to format the CF card and not your computer- somehow that affects the file storage system on the card. Good luck.

Meaning of Green square icon on upper left corner


I have the same camera. The green square icon appears while the camera is saving the picture. From your description, I think you were using "Shot Confirmation", and this setting was cleared during the repairs. Have you tried going into the Setup mode (on the dial) and reselecting Shot Confirmation? (p. 143 in the manual)
