Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD screen not working

I have a brand new Canon xti rebel. When taking a picture I cannot get the image to appear on the screen. After taking the photo it appears and I can review all of my photos which makes me think the actual LCD screen is working. However not once since I started using it have I been able to just hold my camera (away from me) and see an image on the LCD screen. I have read the instructions and tried to switch screens from the info screen to image but cannot. As this is a brand new camera what could be wrong?

    I'm with you Jnutz! I just today bought this camera and went through everything in the manual to "fix" the problem...I'm honestly disappointed that I wasn't aware of this sooner. I had no idea it couldn't do what my $400 camera would do. I borrowed a camera (can't remember the brand, but not Canon) from my friend and it worked...so I didn't even think about that. I wish I would have known, it's a pretty big downer. I think the camera will be nice overall though!

You will be pleased to hear there is nothing wrong with your camera, that's the way it is I'm afraid, there is no live preview on most dSLR's except the most recent, most expensive models..

It took me a while to get used to the idea after using compacts for a few years, but we were quite happy with the viewfinders on our film SLR's...

Happy snappin

Have canon rebel xti digital 400d--how do i see live image prior to shooting on lcd monitor


This Canon model 400D or XTi does not have Live view capability in the LCD screen, so you cannot do it.

You have to use the view finder to select the image that you want to capture with it.

If you need a Canon DSLR camera with Live View capability, you need to try other different model such as the T1i or XSi.

Best regards,

Camera works great, but there is no image on the screen


If you mean that you can't preview your picture on the LCD (like compact digital cameras), this feature was not available on digital SLRs made before 2007 (Canon calls this "live view"). The Digital Rebel XTi came out in 2006.

Help! Cracked LCD display on Canon Rebel xti


Had the same problem myself, I purchased a new lcd from ebay (user name: ProphotoSD). He has tons of factory LCD's, cost around 90$. Please note that if you cracked the clear cover above the lcd that is a separate piece however it wont effect the lcd working (this piece is also replaceable). Then I found a simple tutorial for disassembling the camera body on google. Took me like 25 min, very simple job, just need a very small phillips head screw driver. Hope this helps!

Very blurry pictures on a Cannon Xti 400D


If u had took photo in very low light, pictures will appear blur. Or if you use tele zoom, u need to use tripod to stablize. In normal conditions, you can turn on image stablizer.

Black LCD screen/ not 'seeing' picture. Canon EOS 400D camera


Hi

The Digital Rebel XTi doesn't have 'live view' mode, you can't see what you're taking a picture of before you take the picture.

New canon eos digital rebel xti


There have been several reports of CF cards that work with all cameras, except the Rebel XTi. It depends on the actual manufacturer of the card. Canon made a change mid-production that affected the data saving. Try another brand of card & you should not have that problem any more.

NO IMAGE


Check the card isn't set to write protect mode with the switch on it.
I will assume the picture is viewable through the LCD and everything else appears to be normal.

I have just got EOS 400 D CANON DIGITAL CAMERA.


If you're talking about seeing the image prior to taking the picture, like on most point and shoot digital cameras, that is NOT a function available on the Digital Rebel, XT, or XTI.
