Cnon eos rebel half black pictures

\015 My pictures have started to come out half black. help please\015

Answers :

This happened to me. The black is the shutter .. it is stuck in a partially closed, partially opened position. I managed to fix mine by setting it to the sensor clean mode and flicking the shutter back up. however, to prevent damaging your camera, you may want to take it in to a repair person to do this.
Sensor may have something on it....or your f/ may be off. or if you use flash it is probably not on High Flash Sync. Just ask your local photographer, because I can't help unless I actually see it.

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.

I have tried many solutions that I have read but maybe I am missing something. I would be grateful for any advise.
