    The comment is not the solution

    No camera is about four years old but hardly used.I think it may be more serious than your suggestion.

    Do you mean that you can still see the image on the flip-out monitor, but can no longer see any image in the digital viewfinder?

    By design, the image does not appear in the viewfinder when the LCD panel is open. When the LCD panel is in use, the viewfinder will not operate. To resolve this, close the LCD panel.

    It sounds as though your camera had a failed LCD lamp or filter in the viewfinder. Is this camera still under warranty?

There is two ways to view your "taking picture" with the LCD and with the viewfinder, you can shut the LCD off to save battery power and use the viewfinder and that is what I think has happened. a touch of the DISP button and it will switch from the LCD to the viewfinder. here is a diagram

With you saying the LCD is working for functions but not for taking pictures this is what I suspect is the problem.

How do I have the viewfinder image show in the LCD display


The EOS 350D doesn't have that function (Live View). You need to shoot with the viewfinder. Only later models of D-SLRs have Live View functions (EOS 500D, 50D, 40D, etc). You can however, playback your captured shots by pressing the "Play" button

Black LCD and Viewfinder


I have the similar problem as above...Canon 5D

When camera is turned on the viewfinder is black. All other functions appear to be working correctly. I can view pictures on the card. I take a picture and it views on the screen and the spec's come up on the botton of the view finder but the viewfinder is 90 black with a bit of blur. Is this the censor or a mirror...?

Is this fixable and at what approximate cost? Would it be cheaper to replace?

The screen is cracked and i can only see half of the picture


Sounds like the camera is a loss unless it has a viewfinder as well. It depends on the camera of course. If it is an expensive camera, you will want to get an estimate on having it repaired. If not, You might want to buy another, unless of course it does have a viewfinder as well as a screen from which you can take photos. So many other functions won't work however, without the screen.

I see nothing in the Viewfinder...


The camera has a mirror lock up feature for cleaning the CCD sensor. You may have engaged it. Check your manual about this function
