Question about Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera

I took the lens off because I could not see

I have a Canon Rebel and had problems, I took the lens off because I could not see anything through the view finder and the mirror had come out. It looks like it must have been glued in and the glue gave up. What kind of glue shoul I use to put it back in?

Your camera needs professional repair...do not attempt to glue the mirror unless you don't mind having a very expensive paper weight.

When I take a picture with the Canon Rebel, it doesn't focus in the view finder, but when I look at the picture after it has been taken, it is clear and in focus. Why can't it looked focused when looking...


Good day,

The problem you might be having is that the view finder is out of focus.
If this is the problem it is an easy fix.
You will see a small wheel next to the view finder (it has a + and a - next to it), look through the view finder and let the camera focus on an object. Now turn the wheel and you will see the image either get worse or start to come in focus. Adjust the wheel until you are satisfied with the clarity.

Please let me know if this was helpful!

Regards

Try cleaning the contacts on the lens and camera body where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

The mirror in the lens throat has locked in the up position. Mirror lockup can usually be cured by replacing the batteries.

My canon Rebel Xt EOs will not fully focus and take the picture when in automatic focus. It's been doing it for a day or so....I didn't do anything..I took the card out but that's really the only thing...


There are several possible reasons for it, so let me go through them, one by one.

1. Dirty or Defective lens. Check your lens, and if you have a way to get other lens to test the camera, please do it. This includes to check for proper cleaning of both the lens glass and the lens contacts.

Sometimes the iris mechanism in the lens is failing, so there is not adequate light through the lens, which causes this problem.

2. Behind the main mirror, there is the secondary mirror, which is used for auto-focus. I warn you that you have to perform the following with extreme precautions.

There is a spring that is located on the right side of the main mirror (seeing the front of your camera). such srping keeps in palce the secondary mirror. You need to move the main mirror with a tip of a pen (something plastic, not metal) without force so much such mirrors, and don't touch the shutter blades behind the mirrors.

Moving the mirrors you will see ans sense such spring. IF the spring is lose or missing, then that is the reason that such Auto-Focus is not working.

3. Dirty contacts on the camera where the lens is attached. Just clean them (No liquids. Just an eraser pencil or dry wipe will do the job).

4. Defective DC/DC board that controls the lens auto-focus mechanism. Unfortunately, only it can be confimed in a Camera repair shop.

I hope the above can help you to identify why your camera is failing.

If still you need support, please let me know.

Regards,

View screen on back


The XT does not have a "live view" feature. You have to use the viewfinder.
The LCD is strictly for data and picture viewing.

LCD screen


Correct, Since the camera is an DSLR, there is no way for the sensor to have a 'preview' of your subject. The mirror reflects the image and the shutter is closed, covering the CCD sensor until you take a picture.

the display button (top left) can manually turn the lcd on/off

Check your mirror lock up switch. This function is used for long exposures locking the mirror in the up position to reduce vibration before the shutter is released, but you will not be able to use the view finder.
