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

AF not working/half black picture on Digital Rebel

\015 I started having the same issue of my AF not working yesterday right in the middle of shooting pictures. It would sound like it was trying to focus but wouldn't work and therefore I couldn't take the picture. I tried switching to another lens which did not help. The only work around in the moment was switching to manual focus. When I got home I found this thread and tried the suggestion of one post to clean the contacts. I did that and all of sudden my AF was working again...with one big problem...now the bottom half of the picture is black! My camera is about 6 years old but it still stinks!\015

I have a Canon Digital Rebel EOS and when I take pictures everything works except I can't see any pictures on my view screen. When I go back to re-view them they are just black and when I view my card on my computer, the pictures are just black. When I take pictures the count on the card doesn't even go down. I am lost. I have tried many solutions that I have read but maybe I am missing something. I would be grateful for any advise.
