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

My EOS 300d blank images

\015 My EOS 300d has started taking pictures which have the bottom two thirds of the image black. the camera is about five years old and has taken approx 10k pictures. Have you any suggestions as to what the problem is and can it be repaired.\015

Answers :

That problem is normally associated with having a too high shutter speed when using flash. If it happens in any mode, with or without flash you may have a shutter blind issue.

\015\012Test the camera at various shutter speeds and compare the results. If this black area is consistant across different shutter speeds, send it in for repair. It is most likely the shutter curtain not making a pass across the sensor fast enough, still obscuring the sensor when a photo was taken.

I have Canon EOS 300D digital Rebel. I have had intermittent problem with the camera display screen going blank even though I put a freshly charged battery in. Usually I can take a couple pictures then the camera becomes non-responsive with a blank display screen; if I pull the battery out and re-insert it, the camera will take a few more pictures before the same things happens. Any suggestions?

Viewing exposures on file in chip some images are blank with notation "file error". How can I recover Image? The camera is relatively new for me and I do not have much experience asyet. There were a number of exposures on the chip and I was showing them to my wife on our computer.

EOS Utility I purchased a Rebel Xsi, and installed the software. Upon connecting my camera to my computer, and launching the EOS Utility, the options to download the images, select images, or camera settings are shaded out. In order to transfer pictures, I have to go into "My Computer", open up the camera and copy and paste it. I have updated all of the software from Canon's website with the June 2009 updates, and the problem persists. Thanks for the help.


I got the same problem updating the EOS Utility. The version on the original SXi CD is 2.4.0.1. The upgrade is version 2.6.1. I suggest you to uninstall all the updated software. Or at least the EOS Utility. Go to the folder <C:\\Documents and Se ... Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera

I first experienced a problem with my Canon S2Is camera when it was only taking pictures of blank images. I found a "fix" recommendation which seems to have gotten rid of the black image problem. However, now when I take pictures the images seem to have horizonal lines through them if I don't use the flash. Also, if I am taking a picture outside or in a lot of light, the image ends up being extremely light. Have any suggestions?


Think you need to do the fix more. Believe your shutter was previously stuck in the closed position. Now it sounds like it is stuck in the open position. Again keep trying the fix to loosen it up. Just to confirm, the "fix" you're talking about i ... Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

I've got an EOS 30D and when I shoot RAW images along with regular ones I can't find the RAW images. Are they somehow embedded in the other images? I run Windows on a PC and download the images direct from the card. The perplexing thing is that once or twice they have come up as separate files when I downloaded the files to my computer. Any thoughts? Thanks very much, Jon Binzen


I haven't come across that particular problem as of yet. My only questions is; why shoot both RAW and JPEG at the same time? It would be memory consuming. I shoot only RAW unless I'm shooting sporting events. I typically use Canon's DPP softwar ... Canon Digital Cameras
