Question about Digital Cameras
Not all of the lights are lit when in AF mode, there are different ways for AF to work and you should refer to your manual to understand how to set up/understand what it is doing. Camera manufacturers seem to make their customers believe that their camera is easy to use, and yet fill the thing with all of the technical stuff/gadgets which make it very difficult for a beginner to understand. Hope this is of some use!

I think this might be a firmware issue.www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=139&modelid=17779#DownloadDetailAct
Here is a link to Canon's website for your 40D there you will find the latest firmware version for your camera. Version 2.0.0 which includes 1.0.8 . In 1.0.8 item #3 in the list of changes it states repairs a phenomenon where reviewed images appear unnatural.

Check the playback menu that the review time has not been set to OFF. This will stop any pictures displaying on the back of the camera when taking them!
I leave mine at 2 secs which is long enough to quickly review and keeps the battery life up. If I need to review for longer, just use playback.
The flash won't come on if you have the camera in any of the creative modes (i.e. A-DEP, M, AV, TV or P). You can manually use it by pressing the flash button just above the lens release button on the front of the camera.
