Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon Digital Rebel XT will not take pictures

My wife and daughter are on a field trip.  My daughter clicked a button and a lot of 'numbers' appeared on the screen. I suspect that the camera has been turned to manual mode.


My wife says the camera shutter will now not click.   Any ideas you have about what button was pushed or how to get it back to working would be greatly appreciated.

Turn camera off, take out battery, put in a one you know is charged up. Then turn on camera and try again. The numbers may just be from in the 'info button' and will disappear when taking a photo. I am wondering if the battery is dead is why the shutter won't work and has nothing to do with 'numbers.'

Delete button not working

Delete button will only work in the PLAY setting (for playing back the images on the LCD screen) OR, immediately after you've taken the photo and it is still displayed on the screen.

I am trying to take pictures directly from the camera to the pc

Are you saying you want to tether the camera to the computer so that what you want o photograph appears on the screen? If so, you need to spend a lot more money on the professional Canons to do that.

Display only works after the shot canon eos rebel xt

The XT does not have a live view capability. It works as SLRs have worked for half a century: you frame the picture through the viewfinder and click the shutter.

Or are you saying that you can't see the menu on the display?

Change the delay on the shutter

I sat & pushed buttons until it quit. I don't know what I did but it is okay now - until next time.

Can't download pictures from my camera

To take you to the download page for the XT on canon's website.
You have to choose the operating system you are using (since it wasnt stated in the question.
There are other downloads on this page as well.

The actual camera manual is hidden in the "Guides and manuals" section.

I put in XP as the OS, and it appeared 3rd from the bottom in that section.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Canon Rbl XT out of focus in viewfndr when shutter half way down

It's possible that the reason the "pictures turn out fairly good" is that your f-stop is set high enough that even though the image isn't properly focused, you have enough depth-of-field to bring your subject into "near focus". Does your lens try to focus back and forth when you half-press the shutter? If not, double check that the lens is in autofocus and not manual focus. You can also try cleaning the contacts between the lens and camera. Take the lens off, and then one-at-a-time clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera, using a clean pencil eraser. Gently rub the contacts. Be sure to hold the item upside down so that the eraser debris falls on to the table, not into the camera body or lens!

If none of this helps the autofocus may have become damaged and you need to have the lens and camera looked at by Canon Repair.
