You should be covered by warranty so you should have the shop replace it for a new one or let them fix the problem for free

Sounds like the CCD chip is bad. Could be something else as well. How long have you owned the camera? Your best bet is to send it in to an authorized service center.
Thanks,

My Rebel xti will not display live view but will display shots taken - can you help?


This model does not have a live view capability. To compose the shot you must use the viewfinder and then you can check the result on the lcd screen. This the norm on semi professional and professional DSLR's

Canon eos 400d how do i get the screen on rear to show the view before i take the picture


I'm afraid you can't view the image on the rear screen before you take the shot. On cameras like these,( semi and professional DSLR's) this is the norm. You view and compose the shot through the viewfinder and then you can check the result and view all your shots on the lcd screen afterwards

On my EOS 400D, my view lense cannot use as a view finder.


The 400D does not have LiveView capability. You have to look through the viewfinder, as SLR uses have done for half a century.

Have a canon rebel eos and when I turn the camera on the only ting that shows up on the lcd is the auto description---how do I get it to just show what I want to take a photo of


These cameras won't show the picture on the screen until you've taken the photo, they don't work the same way as point and shoot cameras. So you have to use the viewfinder. Unless your model has live view in which case it's still pretty fiddly and I wouldn't recommend it.

EOS 400D Digital Camera Software


Hi
If you bought your camera (400D) new it would have come with RAW conversion software on a disk. You can start by installing this. To get the photos off the camera you should be able to plug it in vis the USB cable that came with it. The better way would be to buy a card reader. This is a lot quicker, save on battery wear and tear, or save you plugging in the power.

Alternative software would be to buy Adobe Photoshop Elements for the RAW processing. This is a good start for most people.

Canon EOS 400D LCD screen problem


There is no live preview mode on this camera. I am not sure if that is what you are referring to, but you can only use LCD for review and menu, not as a viewfinder.

The new Rebel XSi is the only one in the rebel series with this new feature.

Hope this helps!

Canon eos digital canon rebel xti - LCD won't work when shooting


Most DSLR cameras (like your Canon) don't have a live view - in other words, you can't "see" the image before you capture it. You must use the viewfinder.

Is my canon eos 400d broken?


This is a Digital SLR With SLR cameras you can only use the viewfinder because the image comesi nto the lens and up to the viewfinder via a mirror. When to take a pic the mirror flips up[usually with a crash] and the image goes to the CCD- afterwards you will get an image briefly in the LCD.
