Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
Suddenly my Canon XT stop taking photos. When I look thru the viewfinder, ALL seems OK. It autofocus' just find, and when I look at the LCD info window below the viewfinder the exposure the camera selects seems OK, and the flash pops up normally. But when I snap a picture all sounds OK but no picture is take. I can see old photos I took previously on the LCD.
This is what someone off of yahoo answers told me...turns out it was in fact the mirror..what a relief..hope this helps you too!
It seems like your mirror is locked up in the "up" position, which is why your viewfinder shows nothing.
It's possible that your battery died in midshot, locking up the mirror. Some things you can try:
1) remove the battery, let the camera sit overnight. Charge the battery and reinsert. Try to take a photo in manual exposure.
2) If that doesn't work, try the mirror cleaning up/mirror cleaning down procedure to see if that unlocks the mirror.
3) if neither of those work, you'll have to get the camera looked at by a Canon repair location.

I have the SAME problem. I wrote to Canon and they told me to shut off the camera, take the battery out and wait 20 MINUTES! I can't WAIT that long, especially when I'm WORKING! I rely on this camera to work! Its annoying! Then they said if that doesn't work, to SEND IT IN and if its under warranty, they'll fix it for free.. if its NOT, then I have to pay for it. BUt the "technical team" will make the decision.
