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

Camera works great, but there is no image on the screen


Answers :

If you mean that you can't preview your picture on the LCD (like compact digital cameras), this feature was not available on digital SLRs made before 2007 (Canon calls this "live view"). The Digital Rebel XTi came out in 2006.

Zoom error I turned my F470 camera on and received a "zoom error" bar across the screen. The lense does not move outwards after I turn the power on, nor does the plastic sliding screen close when I turn the camera off. The lense is exposed whether or not the camera is on or off. The lense does not make any sounds when I turn the camera on, but I hear (what I think) are the gears when I turn the camera off. When the camera is on, the screen is working, but the image is blurry. I tried other poste

DSC-W70 The camera seems to work as it should however when I take a picture, the resulting image on the LCD screen is distorted. By this I mean that lines appear horizontally across the screen. The only time that it works well is when I take it out of normal mode and set it to Multi Burst. However with Multi Burst, the flash does not work.
