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

Can't see full picture after taking it

\015 I bought a display model of this camera and before buying a CF card for it I wanted to practice. I know that the image won't store but I tried taking a few just to see how they would show up on the screen right after taking it. For some reason only the top portion of the picture is shown in the screen. I don't know if this is because I haven't put a CF card in or if there is something wrong with the camera itself. Does anyone have any ideas as to the cause? Thanks!\015

Answers :

Hi

First thing I would do is reset all the options back to the default settings. Now try taking a picture again? Is it working properly?

I was going to check through the settings on an XT for you, but I grabbed my XT and it's not turning on... I thought the only problem with it was I needed to replace the CF reader pins but now I can't remember... Sorry I cant help much more until I get my XT to power again.

BROKEN LCD Today, I had my camera in my camera bag. Somehow, the screen got busted. I took out my camera to take a picture and the entire full screen view is cracked. The camera turned on and off just fine; it seems that only the screen was damaged. No images are shown when I attempt to look at the pictures I took and when I try to take a picture, I cannot see anything on the screen.
