Having problems with your Canon EOS 60D Digital Camera ?

How can I see what I am shooting on my LCD display with Live View disabled?

\015 I have reverted to factory settings in case I accidently adjusted the wrong thing. I want to be able to view my shot through the monitor and adjust the AF points through the LCD display, but I am not able to. I do see the menu and the info screen and quick view through the LCD display - and am able to review photos once taken.\015

There is no function to do this on the EOS 400D. Don't forget the camera is an SLR and still has to open and close a shutter to take a picture. The image is then converted using a CCD instead of exposed on film. I find with my 20D I just take loads o ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Lcd blurred I have a canon power shot a80 and when i turn it on and try to take a picture, on the LCD display i see a mixture of colour which is not even letting me see the image of the picture i would like to take. If i look through the lens and take the image, i am still able to view the picture I had taken if i set the camera on the view pictures. The mixture of colours on the LCD only shows when the camera is set on take the picture... and it doesn't even do it always. Thanks.

Camera repair The LCD display is white with red lines going through it. Even the viewfinder does the same thing -- white. When I hit the view button, the same thing sometimes. It seems to do worse outside. You can faintly see the pictures I took in the LCD display. Now the LCD display is totally black. What's wrong. The menu display still works. What can I do?

My Nikon D40 LCD Screen doesn't show a live view when on, but it does show menu options, photos taken, etc. Do you have any thoughts on how to see a live pic, instead of taking pics only with view finder?

Lcd display not working on nikon d40. When we turn on the camera, and take off the lens cap, the lcd display is black. we can use the viewfinder to take a photo. We can view the image after taking the photo, but can not see the image prior to taking the picture.

Blank lcd I just got a new canon 600D. After playing with it for a while, i turned it off. Then after 5-10 mins i turned it on once again, and opened the lcd screen, but it shows blank(or say black). I can see that the lcd backlit is workeing, but nothing (no content) is displayed. Can this be an issue of low battery ? pressing the shutter button full also not capturing the picture. Flash works though, and optical view finder too, but it does not capture the photo.

Hi!! I inherited a Konica Dynax Maxxum 5D it takes great pictures, but I can't figure out how to get the LCD monitor to show the picture I am taking...it is on a blue screen with functions and settings, but I can't find where in those settings to change it back to seeing the view by looking at the screen, I always have to look through the view finder to shoot a pic. Hope you can help, Thanks a lot, Cath


To see the picture you want to take on the screen, your camera needs to have a feature called "live view". I'm not sure if your camera has that feature. It's a relatively new feature on more expensive cameras. Check your owner's manual. ... Konica Minolta Dynax 5D / Maxxum 5D Digital Camera
