If you can see the menu icons on the LCD, and can view earlier photos from your memory card, you probably have an image sensor (CCD) failure. See this link for details. If Canon determines that this is the problem, they will repair your camera at no cost, regardless of warranty status.

When opening the shutter no image comes up on the LCD screen. The date, remaining image details are still showing however. If a picture is taken, it comes up as a light green screen.


sir,
digital cameras have an image sensor called CCD or C-mos if the camera picture is having problems with color this part may be faulty.
the picture previously taken (before this fault happened) must be fair, if it also bad then there may be problem with LCD or the main board.

If you are convinced you did not switch the camera to manual settings, and the blur stays, please contact the nearest Canon certified service centre close to you. But before check the settings on the camera and start putting it on automatic.

I had the same problem. I just went into the menu under the tools tab, and clicked 'reset all' (scroll all the way to the bottom). I'm not sure what setting was changed, but my screen images all came back! (I had also switched out memory cards but that didn't seem to make a difference). I'm so glad, I love this camera and have taken many great pictures with it! Hope this works for others.........

Similar problems as other readers. camera turns on but no real time image on LCD screen. LCD contiues to show settings i.e. full auto mode etc. But I can view pictures already taken. Thanks


The XTi and prior EOS models have not capability to see the live image to be shoot on the screen. Only the image after taken can see on the screen. Other images also using the view mode.

If you can't review the images, eve if the display is turned off, just after they are taken, maybe the "Review time" is set to "off". Go to settings, 3th tab, Review time and set the desired setting.
