    Dark screen... at first you could barely see anything, but now you can't see anything at all. How do I fix it and how much will it cost? Am I better off getting a new camera?

Hi, I have a Canon T2i Rebel. When i put the camera in "M" (totally manual), the image doesnt appear in the LCD screen. Everything else works fine in the monitor, but it is as if the lens where...


That's great news, so let's write it up as a solution so that other people who search on here find the right information!

So it appears that the Canon T2i when in manual mode (M) remembers whatever settings you play with, and that these settings are remembered across power cycles; in other words, turning the camera off, or switching to auto before going back to manual does NOT put the settings back to a default.

This gives you the opportunity to set choices that make the screen view totally white or totally black, and unless you realise what you did, you can fear that your camera is broken in some way. At first, I thought this was a user interface flaw, but at least with the screen black or white, you know which way you need to go to get your picture back! The settings that affect brightness are Shutter Speed, Aperture Value, and ISO Rating. They are accessed in manual mode with the thumbwheel, alone, with Av, and after pressing the ISO button, respectively.

One more little bit of trivia: when in manual mode if you don't have live view on, when you half press the shutter, a little indicator comes up on the exposure scale, so that you can see how the settings you've chosen are going to come out.

P.S. I noticed that there was a forum especially for your camera, you might like to join it, it's called t2iforum dot com.

Canon eos rebel xsi screen is black when taking a picture but shows picture afterwards..Menu works also so screen works but just black when trying to take a pic..


Set the shooting mode to a Creative Zone mode. Press MENU to enter the menu. Under the Setup tab, select [Live View function settings] then press SET. Select [Live View shoot] and press SET. Select [Enable] and press SET. Press MENU to exit the menu. Press SET. The image should now appear on the LCD instead of through the viewfinder.

Refer to "Live View Shooting," Chapter 5 in the manual for more details and the limitations of the LiveView mode.

When I turn on the camera, the screen remains black and only menu items appear. I can look at pics on the memory stick. Everything else seems to work.


Try pressing the button on the bottom right of the screen. It's got a little box beside it. If that doesn't work, my guess is it's a hardware problem. Try taking a picture with it eventhough you can't see what you're taking a picture of. Then see if it comes out black.

Found a very useful recommendation on:

This corrected the problem!!

The hardest part was getting the metal bracket for the SD card holder back in place. It needs to attach to the back cover first before snapping the back cover in place.

Screen appears faulty


With switched on try pressing the camera casing around the edges of the screen. This may be a loose connector and squeezing the camera casing may rectify it - then may perhaps it will not. Try the menu button If it comes up look for the Reset function. Carefully look in the manual in case there is an error correction method. Failing all that Get onto the Samsung web site Technical Help.
