Having problems with your Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera ?

My canon rebel xti is broken?

\015 I've had my camera about a year now. I went to take new pictures and noticed that as I tried to review the pictures I took, the pictures were just black screens. I tested the camera by checking through the viewfinder and the auto focus and everything seemed fine. Every time I take a new picture, the picture is just a black screen. My CF card is okay as well. Is the problem the camera body or the lens?\015

Answers :

This will happen if you have the camera set to manual and the aperture/shutter speed combination does not let in enough light. There's a wheel on the top of the camera with M, A, S, P, Auto settings - turn the wheel to select P or Auto and try again.
Also, if you're indoors, you may have to use the flash.
