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

How do i get the picture i am trying to take diplay in the LCD instead of the camera setting display? When I hit the play button instead of a picture it states No Image...???



Answers :

Here's your answer:

This camera as with the majority of other DSLR's is UNABLE to display the image while you are trying to take it. There is a mirror in SLR's that blocks the sensor; you can only see the image through the eyepiece. This is a good thing. Using the screen on the back does not give you as clear of a picture or as an approximate image.

Some newer DSLR's like Canon's 40D/ Nikon D300 are capable of displaying the image on the screen but the camera is much slower when using this mode (it must close the mirror then re-open it before exposure happens). Its ONLY preferred when shooting on a tripod.

So to answer your question - you can't do it with your XTi. Period. Sorry. (not that, thats a bad thing though).

Display problem Hello, I've had my SD1000 for less than 3 months. Sometimes the display goes black, I can still access the menu options and if I slide the button to review images they will display on the LCD panel. But even if I've just powered it on, the LCD is black, if I take a picture anyway, the picture is also black. Sometimes if I turn on the camera and turn it off again a few times it starts displaying correctly again. Is there a hardware problem with my camera or is this something I sho

My Kodak V1233, isn't working right. If I turn it on, it will only turn on a second and extend the lense and then shuts off (it's fully charged). I can eventually get to take pictures, if I start by hitting the favorite button, and then the camcorder button and then quickly hitting the the camera button. I can take pictures, but can't see them, I only see a black screen. The camera will not power off this way. If I take the battery out, and then put it back in, and hit the favorite button,

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

Message Display I have a 256MB memory card for my camera. I have not taken many photos. Even at the lowest picture quality setting of 640, the camera reads that I only have 146 images to take. When I try to review what is in the camera, I receive the message "No Valid Image to Play." The instruction manual explains that the message means. However, I was not able to find anything that tells what to do to increase the number of available photos from 146 to more. This problem happened once

I have an canon power shot A85. The image taken by it is so blur. We thought it may be the display issue, however the old picture saved in the card are still sharp. The camera can still be used to take video, and the quality is good. Is this due to the setting, since kids have played it more than 6 months. Thank you.
