Here's your answer:

This camera as with the majority of other DSLR's is UNABLE to display the image while you are trying to take it. There is a mirror in SLR's that blocks the sensor; you can only see the image through the eyepiece. This is a good thing. Using the screen on the back does not give you as clear of a picture or as an approximate image.

Some newer DSLR's like Canon's 40D/ Nikon D300 are capable of displaying the image on the screen but the camera is much slower when using this mode (it must close the mirror then re-open it before exposure happens). Its ONLY preferred when shooting on a tripod.

So to answer your question - you can't do it with your XTi. Period. Sorry. (not that, thats a bad thing though).

I have a canon t3i. The menu doesn't turn on when you turn on the camera.


The menu doesn't display when you switch on. You should get the settings screen appear. Once powered up just hit the MENU button

When I turn on my camera the shooting setting display menu comes up, but after I take a picture the screen just goes black. I can still take pictures and everything. I have a Canon EOS 1000D by the way...a


Okay, there are a few possibilities and things to check out if you haven't already found a solution to this problem.
First, it sounds like you've turned off the display by hitting the button. Page 42 of the manual describes hitting the , which toggles the display between being off and on. So, try hitting that button and see if that fixes your problem.

One other thing to check out is the LCD Monitor Off/On setting, which is described on page 115 of the manual. If you're still having problems with your display after toggling the button then check this setting and make sure that it is on the [Shutter btn.] option.

Finally, it's possible that one of the custom functions is affecting the behavior of the display. To get to the custom functions just hit then use the arrow buttons to select [Custom Functions (C. Fn)] under the second to last menu item along the top, as shown in the next picture from page 152 of the manual.

From there choose C.Fn-11 for "LCD display when power ON" and make sure it is set to 0: Display, which will turn the display on when the camera is turned on, instead of 1: Retain power OFF status, which will keep the display off when the camera is turned on.
Since it's been a while I imagine you may have already solved this issue, but if not, then I hope these troubleshooting tips will solve your problem.
Good luck and have fun. :)

Canon sd900 will only take pictures that don't require a flash


Press the "DISP" button. Button on the top right of the bigger circle control button.

You can turn off the display if you want to conserve battery and use the viewfinder. So you probably accidentally turned it off. You can use that button to turn on/off the LCD display or change between two brightness settings on the LCD.

Hope that fixes your problem.

LCD screen not on when camera on?


You hit the EVF/LCD button near the "eye hole". When this is pressed it will cycle viewing through either the optical viewfinder or the LCD screen. This display is controlled independantly on each of the modes: shooting, or viewing. This is so you can set the camera to view pics before taking them from the optical viewfinder and view pics once taken from the LCD or vice-versa.

When i try to take a picture nothing happens, the power is on fresh battery, the display window on top of camera blinks fEE and 279 blinks when i push the trigger to take a photo, when i hit display it...


Well there are some cameras, if you press it half way, it shows you some things, and when you press it fully, it takes the picture.

Make sure that you are pressing the button all the way.

Also, try to reset the settings by pressing the 'menu' button on the back near your LCD display.

Press the left button near the 'OK' button to make sure you have the left side of the menu highlighted on the LCD display.

Use the up and down buttons near the 'OK' to scroll to the 'pencil' icon.

When the 'pencil' icon is highlighted, press the right button near the 'OK' to highlight the right side.

Scroll up and down until you have 'Reset' highlighted, then press 'OK'.

Scroll down one to 'yes', and press 'OK'.

Your default factory settings are now back to when you originally purchased your Nikon D40 camera

Hope it works.

Canon A75 No startup sound & display on LCD, rest of things works fine


Think it might be your batteries. 700mah batteries are pretty weak by today's standards (most are at least 2,500 mah these days). I'm guessing your batteries are several years old? If so, they're really only meant to have a usable shelf life of a few years, whether they are used or not. Recommend trying a new set of rechargeable batteries.

Canon powershot a540 black/web screen display


jvsnype and ygjeff21, have you checked to see if the pistures also come up as blank or distorted (a sure sign of a CCD failure)? If the pictures are OK, then it might be that you accidentally hit the DISP button, or the camera has a loose LCD ribbon cable connector. The reason I would suspect either is that ygjeff mentioned that the LCD would spring to life when he played with the buttons on the back of the camera.

If and only if the camera still takes good pics, and the DISP button has been checked, then would next recommend reseating the LCD ribbon cable into its connector (ALSO ONLY IF THE CAMERA IS NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY). The following link may be of some help. Wouldn't recommend going any farther than the first three pictures. You just want to jiggle or reseat the ribbon cable where the LCD connects to the circuit board, nothing else:
