Question about Canon Rebel XTi / EOS 400D (body only) Digital Camera

1 Answer

Hi,, The LCD display on my 400D camera no longer functions correctly. When Disp or Menu is pressed, it goes bright for an instant and and then fades to a dull grey color. When photo is taken, a similar thing happens. Does this mean that the display needs to be replaced?

Hi.

Yes, that often means that there is an in internal fault.Either the display or the circuit powering the display is defective. The repair involves disassembling, and there is chance to damage the camera.

Try resetting the camera. One way is by removing main battery and removing also the coin battery located in a slot near to main battery. This will reset all settings. I don't think it will fix the problem.

If that does not work the camera must be disassembled. Testing is difficult. The tech just summary tests the board at the back for this kind of problems. If there is nothing at a glance, the LCD included in the back-panel gets replaced first. If that doesn't work the back-board is next.

LCD not working on Canon S3IS


When you press the DISP button the screen will light up. But there is a power save function that will turn the screen off after 1 minute. This value can be changed if you press MENU, select the tools tab and then look under Power Saving. Check what this is currently set to, it may have been changed to be less than a minute. You can make the time period longer.

LCD monitor works to display picture already taken and the menu display, but with not display live images. Must use the view finder. Menu does not have a "live view"


There is no function to do this on the EOS 400D. Don't forget the camera is an SLR and still has to open and close a shutter to take a picture. The image is then converted using a CCD instead of exposed on film. I find with my 20D I just take loads of pictures and review them and then delete the ones that I don't want. This is the beauty of the digital age.

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.

I have a Canon powershot SD1000 that no longer will show the picture on the viewing screen. The screen is completely black


Hi!

It's possible that you may have accidentally pressed the DISP button to disable the LCD. Please try to press the DISP button after you switch on the camera. If the display does not show up on the first press, try pressing the button twice or until the LCD turns on.

LCD Display


As far as I am aware, the 400D doesn't have a live preview mode.

What you are describing is perfectly normal and is how 99% of digital SLR cameras behave.

Are you sure it used to do this?

Small bright dot


Pixel Mapping is a feature of the camera to check and adjust the CCD and image processing functions. Press the OK/MENU button and then press the right arrow button to enter the Mode Menu. Press the down arrow button until the SETUP tab is highlighted. Press the right arrow button and then the down arrow button until PIXEL MAPPING is highlighted. Press the right arrow key, which will highlight START. Press the OK/MENU. The back of the camera will display an indicator bar with the word BUSY. Once Pixel Mapping is completed the Mode Menu displays. Press the OK/MENU button to resume normal picture taking. The bright dot should no longer appear in your downloaded images.
