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

On my Canon 400D I can't select the AF point I want. (I'm trying to select the middle point). In P TV and AV and Manual it seems to randomly select a point and I cannot control the focus point as, when the AF button is pressed, it doesn't come up on the screen. (Whereas other 400D cameras work OK) My camera seems to be missing this important function.
