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

My Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT is taking pictures darker than normal. Why?

Answers :

You should also check your display settings. I once let a friend use my camera to shoot a concert in a dark room, and he felt the LCD lit up the space around him too much and was too distracting, so he just lowered the brightness on the display screen- this threw me off for weeks! Check to make sure your brightness is normal, but if the pictures are transferring to your computer darker as well, you have another problem like what Fwayne alluded to.
First, to test be sure you are in Automatic mode. The dial should be on the Green Box setting. If its on other settings its in manual mode and can be set wrong. take a test picture in this mode, If its looking normal, then you were either int he wrong mode or your manual settings were off. But if they are still dark try your ISO settings, if too low a number it will result in dark images. For example ISO 100 is perfect for outdoor daylight, but ISO 400 is better indoors.
\015\012Next try the F stop settings and arppreture. If things improve, you have found the issue. This camera is professional grade so it will do exactly what its set to do even if the outcome is not what you want!
\015\012Whe all else fails use the menu and reset the camera to factory defaults.

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.

I have Canon EOS 300D digital Rebel. I have had intermittent problem with the camera display screen going blank even though I put a freshly charged battery in. Usually I can take a couple pictures then the camera becomes non-responsive with a blank display screen; if I pull the battery out and re-insert it, the camera will take a few more pictures before the same things happens. Any suggestions?

Strange, intermittent problems with the EOS Digital Rebels can be caused by a defective shutter release switch. We charge about $85 to replace it. ... Canon Digital Cameras

My Canon EOS Rebel XS digital camera has suddenly stopped taking pictures. It will not focus even though it is on the auto focus setting. The first set of numbers are flashing and there is a flashing dot behind the ISO 800. It was working fine when I used it one time and then the next time it wouldn't. I can view pictures, but cannot take them on any setting except A-DEP and it's not focused even then. Please Help!

My 7 year old canon eos rebel XT digital will not take pictures in auto mode..no focus points light up..when in manual, it will take a picture but it's always very blurred..

The most likely thing is that you have motion blur in your prints from \015\012using too slow a shutter speed. Other possible problems are too wide an\015\012 aperture, bad focus, or something in your workflow that's horking the \015\012images. ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I have a Canon Digital EOS Rebel XT and the built-in flash no longer pops up when needed. This started happening after using a Canon speedlite, but then removing it. I've tried resetting everything, and tried all modes expecting that the ones listed in the manual as using a flash would work, but they dont, it never pops up. I lifted up the flash with my fingernail manually, and then tried taking a picture where a flash was most definitely needed, but it still had a long delay, no flash, and

My Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI will not automatically focus. The little AF points don't show red to signify it is focusing. The camera just takes a blurry picture.

Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?

Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

My Canon EOS rebel suddenly won't take pictures in dim light. The flash pops up and blinks and blinks trying to register the image but won't ever autofocus and take the picture. The light has to be very bright for it to take a picture. I have gone through all of the settings and everything seems to be correct. Any thoughts?

To autofocus the sensor needs a fair amount of contrast (light and dark eges) to operate. If you're trying to take a photo in a dim room of a dark colored subject for instance the focus won't lock and the camera won't take the picture. Try switching ...
