Camera acts like it is taking a picture,flash occurs, but you then cannot display the image on the LCD monitor.(all black) When trying to download the image from the CF card, it is just a samll dot, no image is there. We have had camera for several years, no longer under warranty.

LCD monitor does not light up, and consequently, does not display any image (as some other digital cameras do) during the aiming and focusing processes - sort of prescanning the image - before the shutter is half-way then fully pressed. In other words, is the LCD monitor designed soley to display image review (playback) and show menues!
Actually the reason is due to the way an SLR works. The shutter doesn't open up to the CCD device (the digital equivalent of the film) until you press the shutter release button to take the shot. Until then, an angled mirror points the viewed image u ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

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
Lens Problem I just bought an Olympus C-8080. While switching the camera on there are some 4 to 5 light pixels on the display (lcd monitor on the back of the camera), even when directing the camera into the dark. It is not really a problem now, but do you also have this problem with your LCD monitor? What if they become more?
Dead pixels are a nightmare of every LCD screen. There is no way to avoid them - you can just hope they never happen to you. There is no pattern to how they appear and when, but the ones you have will stay for ever. If they bother you right now, send ... Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

Blurry Images Hi, I have a coolpix 5700 and sometimes when I take pictures with it and later go look at them on the camera's display they start out blurry and then "snap" into focus.
