SOURCE: My Canon EOS 1000D wont take photos, viewfinder flashes busy

Maybe you drop your battery and they have electronic components inside that could be spoiled, if is that the case, try to change the battery, it appeares to me that the ammount of current the battery is sending to the component is very low even thoe it seems to be fully charged that's why the camera is unable to display anything and the "busy" warning is blinking all the time, I hope you find this usefull.

SOURCE: screen went black

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 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.

When i open my camera to take a picture all i get is a black view. i cannot see anything on the display or through the view finder.


Does your camera also have an optical viewfinder? If so, chances are that you accidentally pressed the button that turns the screen off to save battery power. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. For your model camera, read the user manual to find out where this button is. On Canon cameras, it's usually a little button labeled DISP or DISPLAY. Just press it oonce to turn the screen back on again.
But if the above doesn't help, have you tried downloading photos taken when the screen is black? Are these photos also black? If so, chances are in this case that you are experiencing a stuck shutter. This is also very easy to remedy (see this).

When I turn the camera on, the lens pops out but I can't see anything in the view finder.


If you want to look through the viewfinder, you must turn off the screen.
Save battery power as well.

When camera is turned on no picture appears in the viewfinder or on the LCD screen, it remains black. The batteries are new. I can access the menu, change settings. Everything works but there is no image...


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Finepix S1000fd just suddenly quit working...


I'm not sure how old this is, but I had this identical problem on my Fujifilm Finepix S1500 and the solution was embarrasingly easy and it may be related to this same problem. If your camera has a viewfinder, see if there's an image there. If so, look to see if you have a EVF/LCD button or something similar on the back of the camera. If so, press it. What had happened with me is that my wife likes using the viewfinder for framing and she presses that button to turn off the rear LCD and on the viewfinder. Maybe the button got pressed accidentally. Press it again and it should switch back. Hopefully this is the solution.

Can you shoot rear curtain flash modes?

If not, try this:

Advance the camera.
Open up the shutter(set mirror lock-up). You'll have to remove the Winder CW to do this.
Push black Tap up to open up the shutter. Don't worry, lens is still closed.
You'll not see anything from the viewfinder, just black.
Trip the shutter button.
Now, check the images.
What do you get?
Try shooting under one second in low light.
Battery is new and not over 5 years old?
