Having problems with your Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera ?

I currently have a Canon 40D, the problem is... 1)When I take pictures, the bottom 4/5th of the screen is cut off, as in it is black. But the top will show the picture 2)The Liveview function works, but the bottom 4/5th of the screen is also still black



Answers :

Shutter speed too high...1/250 violates the max flash synch speed of most FF cameras....the shutter is not fully open at that speed when the exposure is made, and you are seeing one curtain at the black band.

Whenever I turn my camera on, all my LCD shows is a black screen. I can still take pictures but they all show up as black screens. Also, I can still view all my old pictures that I took before this phenomenon started happening. Are there any suggestions to what I can do to get rid of this problem? Thanks.

Black screen I just took pictures yesterday, went to take a picture today, and the screen is black, but the settings still show up around the edge of the LCD screen. I took a picture "just for fun", but it still showed up black (I thought that when the picture took, it would show up in the screen -- nope !!)
