Canon Rebel camera wideangle lens settings?

That depends on what you're taking a picture of. The best setting for a landscape picture won't necessarily be the best setting for a group portrait. You might want to use different settings for a daytime landscape than for a sunset. That's why the camera offers different settings. The camera is a tool. You're the photographer.

I have a Canon EOS digital Rebel XT. I was taking photographs the other day when suddenly it stopped working. The camera still turns on and all the buttons are functional, but it won't actually take a...

I hope you have solved this problem if not there is two things that have happened to me one was that I had unlocked the lens and it turned a little which shut off the communications between the camera ad lens. The other is where the gold contacts between the camera and lens became slightly dirty with a hazy this is easily fixed with a DIY. using a pencil eraser gently polish the contacts between the camera and lens both sets of contacts, be careful not to get dirt into the camera or lens when you are doing this. Don't use a puffer or any air.

LCD is dark and only has icons displayed. Can't view image to photograph.

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.
