I havea canon rebel 1000d eos and when i try to take a picture it flashes busy and there is no lcd screen..how do i fix this? and it wont even let me take a picture.

Answers :


This seems to be a bad news. This is not a common problem on this model. As i cannot diagnose the camera, i could only provide you few possibilities.

Look at any saved image / video? Could you see them? If yes, this is more often a faulty CCD sensor. There were certain recalls by Canon for the same. You need to contact Canon to confirm the same or speak to them to get it repaired as a goodwill gesture.

If you cannot even see saved images / video's, this could be a case of bad LCD panel.

There are few rare possibilities such as LCD driver in shooting mode or stuck lens.

I am having a problem with my camera. It works in the sense that it turns on and takes pictures. However, the both the digital lcd display and normal finder display remain black, even after removing the lens cap. I let a friend borrow it a little while ago and I suspect they may have changed some settings, but I'm not sure what to look for to fix it. When it takes pictures, they come out looking very distorted and strange. But, it does take pictures, the flash goes off and a picture records. c

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.
