Obvious Questions, but you didn't supply the information.....:

1. Is the lens cap off?
2. Are you looking through the viewfinder? You will *NOT* be able to use the LCD screen as a viewfinder.

Otherwise, there is always a light path through the lens to the viewfinder, so....

1. Have you tried a different lens?
2. Have you checked the mirror is down?

Canon 350D can only take picture it does not take video. On screen of course you can play the photos you have taken. But that is all.

I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D.

Installation of this Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.
See the firmware instructions and download the firmware upgrade by following these Fixya Tips :

  1. Follow this link to download a pdf version of the firmware installation instruction guide.
  2. Follow this link to download the Windows Version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  3. Follow this link to download the MAC version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  4. Follow this link to download the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D Instruction Manual.

I hope that helps.

Power switch on camera is not working so i have to remove battery to switch off camera. its a refurbished rebel digital slr


Only time I have seen this is either a faulty switch or software, check you have the latest firmware which you can check on the canon site.
If its the rebel 300d a pointer towards software problems is if it wont shut off when you simply open the battery door as there is a switch that turns the camera off in there also.

Beyond that its either back to the referbisher or canon I'm sorry to say

best of luck

Sometimes if you take photos against harsh light, it results in too much Contrast and makes the photos look in B&W. Please explain more details of the problem you are facing.

Canon EOS 300D LCD monitor problem


turn off the camera.
remove the battery.
wait 10 seconds
replace the battery making sure the power is off.
then turn the power on.

that might reset the board.
otherwise, you might have arced the power if the unit was on when the battery was removed. if so, you have a service issue you can't fix on your own. refer to qualified servicer.
good luck
