Canon EDS 30D Viewfinder Off during Picture Taking Works to Display Picture Taken How do I turn back on?


Answers :

The EOS 30D does not have "live view". (Most SLR digital cameras made before 2007 do not.) By definition, an SLR (single lens reflex) camera looks through the same lens with the viewfinder as it uses when taking the picture.

When I turn the camera on, the canon logo appears on the display and the red light in back above the menu button keeps blinking, but nothing happens. When I turn it on in the "taking pictures" mode or "view pictures" mode, it just hangs and acts like it has trouble reading the CF card. I've tried multiple cards and had the same problem, so I think it's the camera and not the cards. Any ideas?

Negative effect. I've had my Canon Powershot S3 1S for over a year now. The other day I was taking pictures and it was working fine. I turn it off and set it down. I come back later, turn it on again and the screen shows has white lines that keep flicking over it. I turn it off and take the batteries out. Later I put the batteries back in, turn it on, and find that it is in negative effect. I'm pretty sure that my camera can't do this naturally and I've tried everything to see if I could get it

Fujifilm A330 My camera is doing something rather strange; it's always switched on by sliding the front shutter open all the way, and it's ceased turning on when I do that. My dad and I figured out that we can get it to turn on by holding the 'on' button in the back, but it won't get out of the menu/blue 'no image' LCD display for reviewing pictures. In the past, holding the 'on' button was what changed it from picture review mode to picture taking mode, and since everything has swapped around t
