An example of this is the range finder will roll down but 3 notches will stay lit up ( 1 on one side 2 on the other. Do i need to send it to back to Canon?

The LCD monitor displays taken images but isn't operating as a viewfinder.


The XT does not have 'live view' - you can only use the LCD to view taken images

THE LCD DISPLAY OF MY CAMERA IS NOT WORKING. AS WELL AS THE FLASH


There are two problems here. The Rebel XT flash has an issue of not popping up when the button is pressed. See this page for some discussion and suggestions:
http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=203699

Is the camera otherwise powering up and taking pictures and downloading them? Make sure it is not a battery problem

The display not showing up? If this only occurs in the shooting mode, press the DISP button . Another reason the display shuts down is when you look through the viewfinder- a sensor knows your cheek is next to the screen and shuts off the display. If anything blocks the sensor (located under the viewfinder, the display shuts off.

If the problem also occurs when you are trying to view the pictures (when you press the button with the little triangle) it is more serious and shows there is something wrong with the hardware of the LCD display. In that case consult Canon support.

When turning pwer on the the shootingsettings


You get to the viewfinder by putting an eye to it. The Rebel XT works as SLRs have worked for half a century, showing you the image through the viewfinder. Only more recent dSLRs have a Live View capability, allowing you to use them as point&shoot cameras by viewing the image on an LCD.

How can you use the LCD screen in lieu of looking through the view finder to take pictures. This is for a Canon EOS Rebel XT.


Im afraid your camera does not have live view so therefore you will have to use the viewfinder to take your images and view them back on the lcd screen.

Canon Power Shot SX10 IS - I've had camera for about 4 months. As of a week ago, I can only use small view finder for taking photos; the 2.5 screen for viewing does not work now. Able to view photos...


You can reset the camera to factory settings. If after that, you still have the same problem, make valid the Canon warranty since it's 4 months old.

How do i get the picture to display on the lcd instead of using the view finder?


You can't do this on a D-SLr without Live View. The 350D does not have Live View. So you can't do this.

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 does not work properly


Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing pictures taken or menu operations. You cannot preview a shot on screen before it is taken with the camera.
