Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
Unlike compact point and shoot cameras, Canon EOS D-SLRs don't have the LCDs stay on all the time due to the design of the SLR camera which involves a mirror being in the way of the image and the sensor.
To use "Live View" (composing shots with the LCD), there is an option in the Menu (2nd yellow tab, then Live View Fn Settings) to enable it. Once enabled, press the centre "SET" button behind the camera to activate the LCD. However, the camera can't Auto Focus in Live View mode so manual focusing is needed.

These cameras won't show the picture on the screen until you've taken the photo, they don't work the same way as point and shoot cameras. So you have to use the viewfinder. Unless your model has live view in which case it's still pretty fiddly and I wouldn't recommend it.
