Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Only half the image apears other half is black

One minute my camera was taking great pictures, the next only half the image was appearing in the LCD screen.  What I am left with is only the upper half of the image being captured with the other half black.  Could my shutter be sticking and not fully opening to capture the entire image?  This camera was not dropped or damaged in any way either.  Thanks Krista

Well your sub-mirror is broken inside of the camera, i had the same problem, it just happens by itself after extended use of the camera, and it is not a means for recall by canon so you have to deal with it yourself.
this website can fix it for $130 and they will replace it with a metal piece so it doesn't happen again(original piece is weak plastic)

black lines come only when the lcd is damaged due to dropping or jerking. You will have to change the lcd if you wan't to get rid of them. No those won't appear in the printed pictures.

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.

Can you post the model number and also does it appear to be a blueish color that you are seeing? A picture would be great if you can?

One way out of the glare is to use the optical viewfinder (if your camera has one) to preview your image instead of the LCD. Another possibility is to buy a camera that has a backlit LCD.

Black display


Most likely, this caused by a stuck shutter. Sometimes the shutter can be freed by rapping (carefully) the camera on a desk or some other hard surface. If this doesn't work, then you will have to take it to a repair shop.

No pictures recorded/black screen


it seems that shutter blades are stucked and are not working. when you say shutter is fully open i think you are talking about the lense cover, not the internal shutter assembly. the red light is the indication of OUT OF FOCUS SUBJECT OR FLASH NOT READY. if the shutter blades aare not open the camera would not be able to do the focusing and will flash the red light thus you would not get any image. contact the repairer.
