Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Partial black screen

My camera was working fine and now when I shoot a picture the screen is almost all black with a small strip of the picture at the top. I don't think there was a chance of any water damage.

A number of things could be wrong.
See if you can get the menus to work correctly.
If you can see the menus then the problem is not in the playback system, but in the taking part of the camera.
Could be a ccd problem if the menus are okay.
If you can get the menus, set all to default, and then test it.
If the menus also shows the bad picture details as you have described, then the camera needs repair.

How to open film compartment


If you look on the left side (held up like you're taking a picture), there's a strip that's black and silver. On the bottom of the strip is a really small, very hard to see tab that kind of blends in with the strip- push down on it with a fingernail and the back should pop open

I just got a vintage camera. It's called an Ansco Memar. The full name may be "Ansco Memar Pronto." I didn't receive a manual with it. HOW CAN I open the little compartment where the film goes?

The screen just shows black, the lens works it flashes for pictures but all pics are black


Verify the shooting mode. Sound like you have underexposed images, maybe due to a too fast shutter speed or too small aperature...

Cannot see what im shooting and on lcd screen,no picture jus black. It shows numbers timer everything else except picture. In play mode everything works fine.


I have 2 xelim camaras. One of which has a piece of some type of cover partially obstructing the view. This camara still displays the time and menus and older pictures. If I take pix now the picture is obscured. The other camara has no picture on the display but when I take a picture it turns out just fine. That camara will need disassembled and a connector hooked back up

Most screens on digital camaras are for aiming the camara and output (displaying the picture) therefore any problems with the screen do not translate to a picture.

Water Damage to View Finder


Hello,
Try cleaning the viewfinder with a damp (again?) soft cloth. You can use a product recommended for cleaning camera lenses. You can still use the screen to view the scene you want to shoot. (I am assuming that what you call the viewfinder is the small eye that used to equip all cameras, before it was replaced by the view screen.)

Hope it helps.

Black screen for Shooting Canon S3 IS


I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode. I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:

When shooting my screen is black and pics. are black


try to take video on Movie mode, if you won't get picture on LCD the CCD is dead. That means you need to replace the whole zoom lens. it costs a lot, not worth to repair.
