Do not have view picture in view screen when focus camera for shooting


If you are talking about the LCD on back of camera, you are out of luck. That camera does not have what they call "Live View". If talking about through the viewfinder, make sure mirror is not locked up and lens cap is off.

Cant see anything through camera


There is a button next to the viewfinder. When you press it, you go between the viewfinder and being able to see what you're shooting through the tiny video screen on the back. That should take care of it. Otherwise, it may need repair. Good luck.

Diopter adjustment and viewfinder problem


Hi
I would not attempt to open the camera for any sort of fix. It has weather seals in place and would recommend sending it in to Canon. If you have any warranties left it would void these. Lastly this is a high proformance bit of kit and you want to get is seen to by an Authourised Canon Dealer.

As for the diopter adustment. To be able to see through the view finder and see your subject clearly, take of the lens cap aim the camera and turn the little dial until the screen inside the viewfinder is clear it should not be fuzzy. You are only looking at the screen/gring and not the image beyond. This does not affect your image but does effect how clearly you see your subject through the viewfinder.

Hope this helps

Regards

My Canon 300D SLR will turn on, and led display comes up saying battery is full and yet when you go to take a photo you cant see anything but black through the lens.


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?

Viewfinder is black


If you're asking about the electronic viewfinder (where you put your eye to the back of the camera), that can be turned on/off via the SEL button at the button right corner of the viewfinder. In fact, the LCD screen staying on/off is selected with the same button. Press it three times to cycle through the various modes of "viewing". If the viewfinder or LCD stays off after cycling through the SEL button selections, I would say your camera needs to be serviced at a repair shop.

I hope this helps!

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