The above is the support page for your 50d camera.

I could not find a 'black' or 'blank' screen problem and solution in the FAQ's.

So, I think that it should be serviced by CanonUSA.com:

    "the screen is black where you are suppose to see the picture before you take one" - your Canon 50D is working fine then. Because that is how it is supposed to work... unless you do a mirror lock-up by pressing the button right with the gray dot next to the view finder. The button has the "Camera" icon on top and "Printer" icon at the button.

    "it will show the picture you took but then turn black again" - Yep, by default the 50D does that, too. Nothing wrong with it. If you want to see the picture you just took again, you can always press the "Play" button just right under the LCD screen.

Hi, Unfortunately having a shutter replaced, when sending the camera off to Canon takes 8-12 weeks in my experience.

Does the Eos 50d support wireless multi-flash


I have a Metz and a 50d and it does support E-ttl. The Metz is a bit less and it is more versatile than the Cannon and it does support slaves as well. I hope this helps you a bit. I got my Metz from Calumet Photographic. I am sure if you call them, they can tell you the answer.

Live view shooting/print/share button stuck on


Until you figure it out, pop out the battery until you use it next time. I have not used this feature. Do your recall how you turned it on?

Try to clean the battery compartment. If it dont work try to use other batteries. If still the camera wont turn on the battery compartment is either defective or the board has a defect
