I'm afraid this is almost certainly a shutter fault - the second curtain of the focal-plane shutter is getting stuck half-way across the film and therefore not shutting properly. The fact that the other half of each frame is OK makes me think that the second curtain is not sticking totally but just moving very slowly for half of its run, thus seriously overexposing that half of the film. This is a repair shop job - unless you want to try it yourself: it may be just some dirt stuck in the track the shutter curtain runs in, but a fair bit of skill is needed to get to it & clean it without damaging anything!

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.

Half of the picture is black on every picture.


If the affected photos were taken using a flash then you simply had the shutter speed set too high. The fastest shutter speed you may use when using flash is 1/90th of a second; with anything faster the second shutter curtain starts to travel across the film plane before the first one has fully crossed so only part of the negative is exposed.

If they were taken without flash then your camera has a faulty shutter assembly which must be replaced. It's not a DIY job, it's not cheap, and on a consumer grade 35mm SLR like any of the Rebel/EOS triple digit models it's usually not cost effective. Especially when there are millions of them lying unused and regularly available for next to nothing on auction websites and for absolutely nothing on FreeCycle/Freegle.

Most likely this is a shutter problem. If you are using flash and getting the half pictures, then make sure the flash is a canon compatible flash and the synch is set to 60th. If the problem is all the time including non-flash pictures, then the shutter will have to be repaired.

Sensor may have something on it....or your f/ may be off. or if you use flash it is probably not on High Flash Sync. Just ask your local photographer, because I can't help unless I actually see it.

Would have to know more of your problem.
It appears like you have either damage to the LCD or internal loose cables. Possibly internal damage could cause this as well.
