Preview butto on canon 40d wont showpics on screen


In the menu's you can choose how long you want to view the picture you just took. Settings are off / 2 sec. / 4 sec. / 8 sec. / always on.
I suggest you try everything but off, and it could be exact what you want.
It is the first menu (with the camera pict) fifth row.

I bought a new memory stick for my canon eos 40d and took it out to download pictures and now the camera won't work, it says format card to camera


You need to format the card in-camera. This is done via the camera menu. The camera needs to format it to it's own file system, you shouldn't format the card in a computer.

Canon eos 400d error 99, shooting not possible. turn the power swithch on off again or re-instal the battery. It has been doing this for a long time and nothing is working to fix it! Thank you,


1.Remove the battery, lens and CF card. Allow the camera to sit without power for 20 minutes and then reinsert a fully charged battery.
2.Turn the camera on and push the shutter button as if you were taking a picture.
3. If you don't get the error message reattach the lens and insert the CF card.
4. Check the below canon eos 400d service manual link:

Canon 40D and 64Gb CF Card


What i find is that the larger the card the slower the write recovery in taking pictures. If you are an action photographer this is a pain as things happen fast . To have the camera take so long to recover from a write leaves you open to losing some excellent shots. So my rule of thumb is use smaller value cards. If you are just a happy shots photographer then this probably doesn't really matter.

Thanks for using Fixya

My canon eos 40D says busy when trying to upload...


i often find with SLRs (and other proprietary cameras) its far safer to use a card reader.

Canon 40D LCD Wont come on buSY flashes in view finder


Okay, this is simple. Your camera can take several pictures at one time in a burst. However when you release the shutter button your processor takes a second to actually SAVE the pictures to the card in the camera. One thing than has helped me in my wedding photography business is to buy the fastest speed cards I can find. It significantly reduced my "busy" time.

Improper upload of pictures to computer from camera Canon EOS 40D


Try getting a card reader, they are cheap. It sounds like the software is having a problem communicating.
