Canon rebel T1i won't take a photo and gives message busy

Rebel T1i. When we take a photo, on the screen we see the # of photo flashing. Then we get a message that says "Busy" but even up to 15 minutes later nothing happens. No photo is taken. Even when we turn off the camera, screen has a rotating blue circle with message "Recording...remaining images"

Try formatting your card in your computer and then in the camera. If problem persists then try another memory card. You need to determine if it is a card or a camera problem

Is your card old or very full of pictures? Is your card "cheap" and slow? Download your pics to your computer and then format the card in the camera to completely erase and optimize it...see if that helps.

SOURCE: Canon Rebel XS says it's busy

The only problem with SD card download stuff is that the LCD screen has to be working. If that is part of the problem, how can the instructions be followed?

Flash delays and says busy


Charge battery or try another battery. The camera says busy when the flash is charging. If that doesn't solve the problem then you may have a bad flash board, capacitor, etc. If it says busy all the time, that is an indication of a main circuit failure. although you mostly see this on the XS.

What does "BUSY" mean on my Canon Rebel T1i, while I'm trying to upload pictures onto my computer?


It means that the transfer is in process. It's letting you know that you shouldn't turn off your camera - it is busy!

LCD Display. I got the Rebel T1i but the LCD screen won't view anythign unless I press the display button. How can I have the LCD screen on while I am taking picture? Please advise..thanks


The T1i does not have this feature, like most digital SLR cameras. You should just look through the viewfinder to take the photo, which gives you a much more precise view of the photo, where you can better assess the correctness of focus, etc.
This feature is called "Live View" and is available on some newer or higher end models.

Hi i m new at slr camera , i buy canon 500d , and when i take a shot , flash light twice or more before take the shot then flash be busy then take shot with flash did it a problem or what/


Check to see if you have the flash set on "red-eye". This causes the flash to pre-flash to eliminate red-eye in your photos. It's a real pain for most photos but if you're shooting in low light, it will eliminate the red-eye.

My canon t1i rebel does not take pictures and says its busy?? wha


In the manual mode, you have to set the focus (distance to subject), aperture and shutter speed. Did you set all of them before you shot the picture?

Hello i am using a Canon EOS Rebel T1i, with a DynaLite kit, but I can't see where to attach the sync cable to the camera


Your camera has no PC Socket.
Buy a NIKON AS-15 and you are ready to shoot. Or just buy a cheap Nikon flash that has a PC Socket.

Trouble downloading


Are you connected to the PC? If so it is processing the download, thus it is busy working.

Why does the word, ''busy'' pop up on the canon rebel xti?


If the flash fires a full charge(eg. in a dark environment) then this message will appear whilst it recharges. If the message appears all the time and you cannot take a photo there is most likely a problem. Try taking some pictures without the flash card to eliminate that first.
