The possible answer is in two things here.
Turn the camera off.
Remove the main battery.
Remove the data/date battery CR2016.
Let the camera sit aside for a few hours.
Put the camera batteries back in, at this point it may be a good idea to put in a new CR2016 data battery.
Turn on the camera and reset or clear all settings to factory default, if needed.
Set all settings as you prefer and test the camera to make sure all works okay. If the main battery pack does not charge as it used to, you should buy a new battery pack. That is if the battery seems to have a short picture taking time.

Try resetting to factory settings - here's how

  • Firstly press the 'menu' button, then the up button above the 'OK' as many times as needed, until you see the top folders are highlighted.

  • Press the right button near the 'OK' until you see the last folder highlighted. You will know this is highlighted when you see the first menu option that says 'Language'. The 3rd one down from that says 'Clear Settings'.

  • Press the down button under the 'OK' until 'Clear Settings' is highlighted, then press the 'OK' button.

  • Scroll up to your choice and press 'OK' to reset your Canon 400D back to default factory settings.
Now try - it could have fixed it. If not, keep turning the dial back and forth, and see if it jogs the camera's operating system. Try switching on and off. You should know, by the way, that the on/off switch doesn't really switch the power off - it tells the internal computer chips that you want the camera to switch off, and then the program closes it down enough to not respond until you either switch it on again, or take the battery out and re-insert it, when it will indicate a red light on the back of the camera to show the battery has made connection, then you switch on again; good luck - if not, phone Canon in your area

How can i switch video mode in canon 400d, 10 mpxl?


Use the "Video system" command in the Setup-2 menu to switch the video output between NTSC and PAL. This is for playing back your still photos on a TV.

If you're asking how to switch the 400D into video recording mode, the 400D doesn't record video. Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

If the picture is taken vertically in EOS 400D SLR, there will be a black shade appearing in right side of the image. This issue was not there earlier. In recent times it started happening. It works fine...


I would be interested in seeing the dark image... check that its not the camera strap or some other part of your own pereson. Hold the camera UNDER the lens and take a vertical, noting where the camera strap is at the time. Perhaps put an example on one of the free photo sites and send us the link.
There is nothing inside a camera that should move and put a dark image on any pic.

Very blurry pictures on a Cannon Xti 400D


If u had took photo in very low light, pictures will appear blur. Or if you use tele zoom, u need to use tripod to stablize. In normal conditions, you can turn on image stablizer.

Try reformatting the card. I don't know if this camera allows you to do a low level format or not. If you can do that.

Gosh Megz, That's prolly more than anyone wants to type. Go to the Library or a book store. I'll try to explain white balance for you. Inside the camera is a program that evaluates the light during exposure. It tries to determine what is white and adjust the other colors in the photos accordingly by adjusting tint and temperature. Your eyes and brain do this for you. If you have a tripod try taking a photo in automatic mode and write down what the shutter speed and f stop was for that photo. Adjust your camera to those settings manually and take the same photo over. This way you will get a consistent photo to look at. Then change your color balance to different settings like daylight, cloudy, shade, tungsten (which is incandescent lighting) and fluorescent and view the difference in colors after you download to your image viewer on your computer. You'll think you went back to the late 60's.

Canon EOS 400D LCD screen problem


There is no live preview mode on this camera. I am not sure if that is what you are referring to, but you can only use LCD for review and menu, not as a viewfinder.

The new Rebel XSi is the only one in the rebel series with this new feature.

Hope this helps!

sounds like you might have an overheating CCD. Turn off the camera for couple of hours and when you try again if this happens again, return it to the store you got it from for warrenty repairs.
