Testimonial: "I've had this camera for 6 years and NEVER used that DISP button. Must have accidentally hit it. I'm kind of an AutoFocus camera user... the details are too much to keep track of. Thanks very much."

SOURCE: no image in the LCD, its black

restore the factory settings

turn camera on, press the menu button for 5 seconds and the default setting comes up. select ok and it all goes back to normal. I think that the exposure was wrong, therefore not letting enough light so the screen always appeared black.

SOURCE: Camera image does not show up on LCD

This model has had problems with the CCD element that acts as the eye of the camera. I would recommend that you return the camera to Canon in New Jersey and let them replace it at no charge to you. Good luck to you. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

SOURCE: LCD screen black with white specs in picture and movie mode

With the power off, hold the camera in your palm and smack the front of the camera on your leg or arm. You might have to smack it a few time to get it to work. It has to do with the camera CDD lense (shuttle) being stuck. By smacking it around, it will free up the lense. Being extra gentle with it though. It worked for me. Hope this help.

Lcd screen is completely black in all picture taking modes. shutter button still working but photo comes out black. can still view normal pictures in review mode

i think this is generally the symptom when there is a problem with either the CMOS or the CMOS circuit not able to collect the image, if its worth it you might want to change it but normally it would cost almost as much as the camera

hope could be of help

When I turn my camera on, the lcd doesn't display. I can review an image though in the play mode. any ideas??

Rebel XT doesn’t have live view function. You cannot have picture on LCD when taking picture. If you can review the pictures and operate menu on LCD, your camera just fine.

Not appearing image in LCD after taking picture.

Check the settings for Image Review and set the desired time to display the image. This should solve the issue.

LCD on - view image prior to taking photo

The feature you are referring to is called "Live View mode".

This is NOT available on the Nikon D80, and was only introduced on the D90, which is available now.

Live View mode allows you to use the LCD screen as your view finder instead of using the eyepiece, but unfortunately, this feature is not available in your model.

My digital Rebel XT screen has stopped working while taking photos. How did I turn it off and how do I rectify the issue. Thanks

Hi

Your camera doesn't have 'live view' so you can't see what you're taking pictures of before you take the picture, you can only review them after you take the photo.

In the camera settings there will be one for how long the image is displayed after taking a picture, you can access it by pressing "Menu" then scrolling down to "Review" and setting the time you would like it to display.

Keep in mind you can't take photos one after the other quickly if you have the review mode turned on!

Hope this helps,
