Image blacked out on LCD and can not see image in view finder

I can turn the camera off and on. The auto focus is moving out and in, but the image on the LCD Screen is black and if I look through the view finder I still can't see anything. I did try new batteries and made sure the settings were right. Does anyone have an idea on what this could be? Or how to fix it? Thanks, Sandra LCD turned black when using video and camera.

    After 4 years of sublime service my ixus-i started having lense-servo trouble. Fixing that a couple of times ended with black screen and pictures/movies. Looks like the CCD gave in on me, or maybe a connector inside is lose or broken. Opening the camera and checking all connections served me no solution... I bought a new camera ::sniff::

    try doing a hard reset. remove battery and camera card then hold down the power button for 30 seconds to a minute. replace the battery and card and try to activate camera in record mode and see if black screen is still there. good luck

It's really un beleivable but it works.
I had the same problem of the black screen on my canon ,
& I was getting really angry about it.
Only by connecting the USB cable to the camera (of course when this one is on) and the screen lights on immediatly.
thanks guys

Try connecting it to a computer and then turning on the camera. For some reason that fixed it for mine.

Brand new Canon EOS Rebel XS. Suddenly, image in the view finder is blurry. Auto focus seems to be working, and pictures are coming out fine. But sometimes, the autofocus focuses on the wrong thing, and so...


Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.

My canon eos 100D wont's show the image on the screen. it will take the picture when looking through the view finder, but i would like it to appear on the screen. pleae help


Unlike compact point and shoot cameras, Canon's range of EOS D-SLRs don't have the LCDs stay on all the time. The design of the SLR camera involves a mirror in front of the sensor. The mirror in its normal position inhibits the image to be captured by the image sensor. When you shoot, the mirror flips up for a split second and back to its rest position.

To use "Live View" (composing shots with the LCD), there is an option in the Menu to enable it. Once enabled, press the centre "Select" button behind the camera to activate the LCD. However, the camera can't Auto Focus for you in Live View mode so manual focusing input is required of the photographer.

Picture in View Finder perfectly clear, but out of focus


I would check IS(image stablization) setting and continous shooting setting to make sure these features are turned off. You want to experiment with different IS settings and definitely turn the continous shooting mode because the continouse mode may not focus 100% in order to shoot multiple shots. Hope this helps. -James. P.S. In my case it was too difficult to distinguish the quality of focus in the VF or LCD so you may not see the focus issue on them.

I have a canon eos 450d which on the display screen only shows the information I can't see what I can see through the view finder, help please.


you have to enable the live view from the menu. then press the set button on the center of the arrow keys.

when shooting with the live view on, auto focus will not work if you press the shutter button halfway, you should press the button marked '*' to make the auto focus work. the small rectangle on the lcd monitor will turn green when correct focus is achieved.
