the image in the LCD monitor will darken in strong sunlight or bright light. This is normal occurrrence in device CCDs and does not contitute a malfunction. This image will not be recoded when shooting still photos, but it will be recorded wihen shooting movies.Read you owner manual and adjust the MENU, according with your o. manual.Otherwise you must go the repair shop God bless you
I am not sure what is the problem. You say no"picture"..is the screen totally black? Even when you try to preview photos in your camera memory? If so there is a problem with the hardware, LCD screen battery, or some other part.
If you mean you only see numbers and photo setting information on the LCD, that is normal for this Rebel models. The picture only appears in the viewfinder. It does not have a "live view' function to switch the image from the viewfinder to the LCD while you are shooting, as later model have. I have such a model and it is very disappointing.
This may help you, try using the Preview feature on the LCD screen. The LCD screen Preview feature was not used to take a picture in
Close-Up mode. Always use the Preview feature in Close-Up mode to
confirm focus and to frame the subject properly. If the Preview feature
is not used, the LCD will not display an accurate view of the subject.
Looks like the LCD screen in damaged... If you can tolerate the "blob" and it doesn't show up in your images when they're downloaded, then it's not an issue, but if you want to change the LCD, go back to ebay and type in your camera model and "LCD". There are a few camera dismantlers that sell on ebay and you'll find a good deal.
Unfortunately it is not possible to preview the picture on the camera's LCD screen before you take it.
The 300D is an SLR camera. What this means is that as light comes in through the lens it is deflected by a mirror (which sits in front of the sensor) up to the viewfinder. When you take a picture, the mirror flips up out of the way and a mechanical shutter opens, exposing the sensor to the incoming light. Because the mirror and shutter are in the way of the sensor, it is not possible to have a 'live preview'.
Compact cameras (which do allow you to preview the image on the LCD screen) work in a different way. They have a completely separate viewfinder, and they do not have a mechanical shutter - The signal from the sensor is simply switched electronically between the LCD screen and the memory.
On the plus side, although you might not be used to using a viewfinder, you will find the image you see is a lot bigger and a lot brighter that those you get on a compact camera.
CCD malfunction, common with Sony manufactured CCD chips. You are in luck, its a free repair regardless of warranty date. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=223&modelid=8044#
Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece
to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing
pictures taken or menu operations. You cannot preview a shot on screen before it is taken with the camera.
First fault may be in the back light panel which is behind the LCD display unit.
If the felexible connector is proper,then there should be the white florescent light.
If the light is OK,then look for a fault in LCD section.
