Most of picture blanked out or blocked out

I have a Canon 300d. Suddenly 2/3's of the picture appears blacked out. I tried downloading the pictures I took to see if it was an LCD issue and the pictures are the same as what is shown in the LCD scree. The Battery is Full. Changed lens - Nothing was different. Nothing physically blocking. Help...

Does this problem occurs at all shutter speeds or high speeds such as 1/200 or above?

    Another thought
    Is this model a SLT- with a mirror 0r and LCD view finder?

My EOS 300d blank images

That problem is normally associated with having a too high shutter speed when using flash. If it happens in any mode, with or without flash you may have a shutter blind issue.

Test the camera at various shutter speeds and compare the results. If this black area is consistant across different shutter speeds, send it in for repair. It is most likely the shutter curtain not making a pass across the sensor fast enough, still obscuring the sensor when a photo was taken.

Missing light on pictures

Hi Louise. I found you anyway!

Troubleshooting this could get complicated, so I want to try some basic stuff first and get that out of the way.

First: Let's check your camera settings, You may have accidentally set the exposure setting incorrectly. Have you tried resetting your camera back to factory default? The way to do it is in Setup Menu number 2. Scroll down to "Clear All Camera Settings". Then press the Set button. This will take your camera back to like it was when you took it out of the box.
Now try taking a picture, If you still have the same problem, let me know by commenting in this session and we'll move on to step #2.

Canon 300d gives error 99 and does not work

Try the following diagnosis steps: -

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

Strange, intermittent problems with the EOS Digital Rebels can be caused by a defective shutter release switch. We charge about $85 to replace it.

Canon Digital IXUS 70, Camera Blank

This really sounds like a potential CCD failure. To confirm, take a picture while the screen is black, then download to your computer to see if the picture is also black.

If so, it is difficult for the average person to replace a CCD, and should only be done by an authorized Canon repair rep. If still under warranty, Canon will fix this for you for free. If not, recommend calling Canon anyways and complaining (this should not happen in such a recent model camera). If you complain, and possibly ask to speak to a supervisor, you just might get lucky.
