Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

My Canon 300D SLR will turn on, and led display comes up saying battery is full and yet when you go to take a photo you cant see anything but black through the lens.


Answers :

Obvious Questions, but you didn't supply the information.....:

1. Is the lens cap off?
2. Are you looking through the viewfinder? You will *NOT* be able to use the LCD screen as a viewfinder.

Otherwise, there is always a light path through the lens to the viewfinder, so....

1. Have you tried a different lens?
2. Have you checked the mirror is down?

Black Screen The camara was working fine a couple days ago, but now when i turn the camara on, the lcd screen is black. I can't see anything, hence I can't take pictures.
