I am concerned because only the top quarter of the image is showing on the display screen after I take a photo. This is a new problem. The camera was near my computer for more than a day...could this have caused the issue? How do I fix this?
The only thing I have tried is switching the lens in case that was the issue...and I tried removing the battery and putting it back in in an effort to possibly "reboot".
First, try releasing the shutter with the lens off anf the camera set to a long exposure. Watch the shutter through the lens mount to see if it opens all the way. If it doesn't you need a new shutter. This might be covered by Canon's warranty. If the shutter is opening, try to see if something is blocking the CCD. If that is the case, a competent technician should be able to remove the offending piece.

Um, no. EOS Rebel is a "single lens reflex" camera. The display on the back does not show live image. Use the viewfinder above it. After you take a picture, the picture will show on the screen for a few seconds.
This can be either a mirror or shutter problem. Take off the lens and fire off a few shots while you look inside...you may be able to spot the problem. I don't think you will be able to fix it but a repair facility can.
The CR2 suffix means that the picture was taken in the RAW file format, a proprietary format. This requires that the images be processed by a software conversion to be 'readable' by the computer. The EOS Utility software that came with the camera will work, as well as a number of third-party software packages. GOOGLE "raw file conversion Canon digital rebel" to see the options.
The other option is to take your photos in JPEG format (not RAW). Your computer can 'read' any JPEG format image.
Try pressing the display button when playing back an image. Also check
the custom settings menu for your review tiume settings. Mine is set at
2 seconds. Perhaps there is an option not to review the image...though
I need to check.
