Question about Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera
I'm assuming you're talking about a point-and-shoot model, and not the 1000D as the category suggests. Camera mode has significantly higher power requirements than viewing mode. It is possible that your rechargeable battery has degraded to a point where it no longer can power camera mode, or it might just be discharged. Try with a freshly charged battery, or if you're lucky enough to run on AA batteries, get new ones. You might also try using the camera while plugged into the USB port of the PC, which might be able to supply power to the camera. I have noticed that when the batteries are near-empty, the camera "dies" rather abruptly.
