Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
As far as I am aware, the 400D doesn't have a live preview mode.
What you are describing is perfectly normal and is how 99% of digital SLR cameras behave.
Are you sure it used to do this?

Have you checked the display mode you're in? If you have the display set to off (to save power) and also the picture review time set to off, then you'll just see a black screen. Try pressing the 'Disp.' button below the screen when the camera is on - it should cycle through different settings with each press: Off, On, On with picture info. Similarly, in the playback mode this will show you more or less info about the picture you are viewing.
Even if the display is switched off, if you have your 'review' option in the menu set to anything other than Off (i.e. 2 seconds), then you should see the picture you've taken appear on the screen straight after taking it.
If it's not that, then I don't know the answer....
