Hello csdiskau:

Does the camera come on when you slide the cover?
If nothing happens, the problem may be in the camera.
If the camera starts, but has no picture, then there is internal problems and could be a bad ccd.

If the camera starts and you can start the menus, there is internal problems.

EOS400D digital, I cant see the subject through the lens, I have taken the lens cover off


Hi Carol,
There are two things that I can think of which will prevent you from sighting through the view finder.
1. When your camera is switched on for live-view shooting mode or vice versa. That is, you can only see the subject in the LCD screen or through the view finder one at a time.
2. If you are using the LCD screen to frame your subject and you encounter this problem, it is most likely caused by the settings of the camera. Try increasing the ISO to around 400 or above, reduce the shutter speed to anything below 1/20 and the aperture to around F:5.6 or less (that depends on your lens.
Hope you resolve the problem by now but if you haven't try those tips.
Regards.

Brand new batteries will die really fast and we can't figure out why


in some digital cameras when you use lcd screen to take a picture battery consumption is very high, try using the optical veiw finder, also you can use litium batteries which is more expensive than normal alkaline.
there is a new alkaline battery just for digital cameras available in good stores , from energiser

Picture in veiw finding keeps rolling so cant see what i am video


As you have noticed, this is not a battery problem but rather a screen problem(the view finder LCD screen) If the image is crisp and clear even though its rolling I would assume that the LCD screen connectors have come loose and can be resolved by taking them off and re-connecting them firmly. Make sure to turn off the camcorder before atttempting the repair just in case you want to do this yourself. I strongly advice you take professional help in fixing it.

Feel free to post back if you need more help.

SCREEN AND VIEW FINDER BLANK


Is the battery dead? Try taking it out and charging it, then put it back into the camera.

Also, you can try using another battery of the same type.
