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

You have mirror lock up. The most common cause is dead batteries so try replacing them.

EOS400D digital, I cant see the subject through the lens, I have taken the lens cover off


Hi Carol,
There are two things that I can think of which will prevent you from sighting through the view finder.
1. When your camera is switched on for live-view shooting mode or vice versa. That is, you can only see the subject in the LCD screen or through the view finder one at a time.
2. If you are using the LCD screen to frame your subject and you encounter this problem, it is most likely caused by the settings of the camera. Try increasing the ISO to around 400 or above, reduce the shutter speed to anything below 1/20 and the aperture to around F:5.6 or less (that depends on your lens.
Hope you resolve the problem by now but if you haven't try those tips.
Regards.

I can not get the telescope to focus. The viewfinder will not focus in. and can't see anything out of the out of the optical tube.


This type of telescope is viewed from the small tube at the rear. Use the longest lens you have. Most people think that they need magnification, but that is not accurate. A 5 mm lens will only have 1/6th the field of view (how much sky you see) compared to a 30 mm. The picture below was taken through a 50 mm lens.

I cannot see anything through the lens of my brand new 6 SE. What should I do?


During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube. Center the landscape object in the telescope. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour). Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

Just bought a Bushnell telescope 78-4501 - set it up as per the instructions. I can see objects light etc... through the object finder or view finder but I see nothing through the telescope not even...


This is not a real telescope, it is a toy. You will be lucky to see anything with the 20mm lens only. the rest are junk. The telescope needs to be collimated (see your manual) and the finder aligned with the telescope. Align the finder with the scope during the day, although this model was known for poor mounting on the finderscope and will become un-aligned easily.

I have lost manual Camera has battery but I only see black nothing when I look through the lens


If you cannot see anything looking through the view finder, that is either a lens problem, a defective view finder, or a faulty sensor.

For any of this faults you need a technician to fix the camera, call the Canon customer support number printed on camera documentation.

Try also removing the batteries and replacing with fresh ones, to exclude battery problem and to reset the camera, if there is really a fault this will not work, but you have to try.

Regarding the manual, you can download below.

The view finder is blac


I would guess your shutter is stuck closed, or the lens digitizer is faulty. Either problem will result in replacing your whole camera lens assembly. Sorry.
