Check that the white balance is not set to Tungsten light. set it to AWB and try again. The P,Tv Av modes are classed as creative modes and require most settings to be input manualy, white balance ISO speed etc. whereas the picture/symbol modes do most of the decision making for you.

Re: My EOS 400D takes blue hued pics
You have the white balance set incorrectly.
Go to your white balance menu and either select Auto or choose the specific white balance which you require according to the light source you're using. Setting it to Auto means the camera will guess what you need but it will often get it slightly wrong.

You need to understand the relationship and teractivity of aperture, shutter speed and iso. In Av mod, you choose the aperture and the camera makes thw shutter speed agjustment, In Tv mode, you set the shutter speed and the camera makes the aperture adjustment, In manual, you have to set both shutter speed and aperture manually. If the ISO mode is set to AUTO, the camera chooses the sensors sensitivity to light automatically. Change to specific ISO (200-400 for daylight and 799-1600 for night). Take a picture in AV mode and note what shutter speed the camera chose. Then switch to TC mode choose the same shutter speed and see if camera chose the same aperture(f-stop) you chose in first shot. Change to Manual and choose same f-stop and shutter speed the camera chose for you in the other modes. Compare all three photos. They should be almost if not exactly the same exposure wise. In Tv mode choose a dlowers shutter speed, In Manual choose a combo of slower shuuter and wider f-stop(smaller number). Read your manual.
I've been having the same problem. It annoyed me during a day out once.
Set the camera in one of the Creative Modes. -> Then go to Menu (the button on the left of the screen) -> Setup 2 (thats the furthest menu on the right) -> Custom Functions (3rd option down) -> Go to function 4 and change it to "0: AF/AE LOCK"
Hi, sounds like a shutter problem, try taking a picture in manual mode with an exposure of around 1 second and the aperturestopped right down (small appiture)in daylight.
when you say its not pretty i guess you mean blurred?
If your still getting a black image, take the lens off and put it in bulb and press and hold the shutter release if the shutter dose'nt open and stay open while you hold it then its certainly the shutter.
Its not your fault, all the eos cameras are prone to shutter failure
some are fine for 50,000+ shots others die within a thousand
My fingers are crossed for you that its under warranty.If not a repair in the uk can be done for around 140ukp or $200 in the US, the shutter isn't expensive (about $60) but its several hours work to replace it
This is a Digital SLR
With SLR cameras you can only use the viewfinder
because the image comesi nto the lens and up to the viewfinder via a mirror.
When to take a pic the mirror flips up[usually with a crash] and the image goes to the CCD-
afterwards you will get an image briefly in the LCD.
