Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

Photos rotate incorrectly on playback

\015 Having an issue with photos being viewed on playback screen. No matter the orientation of the camera (landscape or portrait) the playback screen rotates the photos so they are all portrait. This is very inconvenient since many photos are sideways and you can't tell if you have a good shot or not. I have tried re-setting the camera defaults, turnign the Auto Rotate setting off and on, as well as a number of other things, but I am still having this problem. Anyone out there had the same or similar issues. I use this camera in a high school journalism class and my students and I very frustrated by this problem. Please offer suggestions.....\015

Answers :

This is a function of auto-rotate. With auto-rotate set to OFF this should not happen.
\015\012If it still happens with auto rotate set to off, then perhaps one of the custom functions has been set incorrectly.

Frozen Camera The camera screen does not display the subject and when "Off" os selected the lens does not retact. Zooming in or out does not work. A photo can be taken but the result is usually very poor being out of focus and incorrectly exposed. I have tried removing the batteries and replacing them with new ones - same problem. Meus and playback work fine.

In playback/review mode of photos, only some appear while others are blank. All photos are present when uploaded to the computer or displayed at a photo kiosk, but only intermittent photos can be reviewed in playback on the camera itself.

I previously thought I'd lost some photos as they seemed to disappear from my camera weeks and months ago. I download photos regularly. The lost photos have now shown up - am I right to assume that they are on the built in memory? When I try to down load the photos I can see on the playback none show up.


If they are on the internal memory, they will show up when there is no card in the camera. If you would like to keep these pics, there is a feature called "copy" in the menu which allows you to copy the internal memory to a memory card. ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS3 Digital Camera

The buttons on my 4 month old Nikon S8000 don't work. I can take a photo but can't zoom in, I can't view the photos, can't record a video, can't turn on the flash (or any of the other setting on the rotating wheel), can't go to menu, scene selector or delete a photo (which doesn't matter as I can't view the photos anyway!). The shop I bought it from is 130 miles away as I've moved away and no other camera shops are near here, so if possible I'd like to solve this without having it sent away! Tha

My Canon A95 has horizontal grid lines on the lcd screen after a photo is taken.
