Lost functions of camera


Setup Screen 3 has an option for "Clear all camera settings" which will reload the defaults. If that's not what you need, you could try re-installing the firmware, but if the firmware is corrupt, you likely can't launch it. If your camera is just locked up, try removing the battery and reinserting. If that doesn't do it, Canon's Tech support can be suprisingly helpful: 1-800-OK-CANON, or you can download the manual from www.usa.canon.com - here's a shortcut to the 40D download page from the above site: http://bit.ly/ch8RSK (The actual Camera Instruction Manual is the last item under "Guides and Manuals"). If I'm misunderstanding the problem, feel free to respond.

Menu options for Canon E0S 40D have changed


Make sure that you didn't dislodge the memory card when you put in the battery.
Note that you can get a memory card reader to read the contents of the flash card directly on your computer.
If the 40D is like the other Canon DSLRs that I have used, you can put an update on the flash card that will update the camera's firmware.  You might need to go to the Canon side and download new firmware to update your camera.  Instructions should be on the site.

No image on LCD monitor


It sounds like your camera has the review time setting set to a short value like 1 second. Look in your user manual for Review Time and then follow the steps to change the review time setting on your camera. If this doesn't solve your problem, it would help to know:

1) Do you have your user manual?
2) What do you have the Review Time set for?
3) If you go to playback mode can you see the picture for a longer time?

Canon eos 40d Soft image on playback screen


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.

L.How important is it that I update firmware 1.0.4 to 1.08 on my 40D slr? 2. Is there an adapter that will work with FD lenses and the 40D?


The firmware update (Version 1.0.8) incorporates the following improvements and fixes.
1.Fixes a phenomenon in which Image Stabilization operation emits a sound when certain buttons are pressed, with the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens attached to the camera.
2.Fixes a phenomenon in which the Image Stabilization operation emits a sound from the lens when IS lenses are attached to the camera.
3.Fixes a phenomenon in which a part of the image looks unnatural when reviewed on the LCD.
4.Corrects errors in the Spanish and Norwegian menu screens.

So if your camera is working properly for your purposes, and you don't use any IS lenses, you don't really need to update the firmware.

In answer to your second question, I don't think so. All EOS cameras communicate with the lenses completely electronically, and so work with any EF or EF-S lens. You may be able to find an adapter which would physically match an FD lens with an EOS camera, but all settings would have to be done manually on both the camera and the lens, and it would definitely be trial and error. The metering function in the camera depends on receiving a lot of information from the lens to get the correct exposure.
