Lcd panel I've just bought a new canon eos 350d and the lcd panel will not show the image of what I am taking a picture of. I can take a picture, and display it back on the lcd panel but just not display what is in the viewfinder when I want to take a photo.

Hi! My camera powers up, shows the EasyShare splash screen, then nothing can be viewed either on the LCD or via the eye viewer. Yep, the cap is off so that's not obstructing it; there is plenty of light, the flash is on but does't work. I also can't get the Menu or Review to display on the LCD. This has just begun happening, no damage to the unit, it's fully charged... Please help!!! Thank you so much! Tracy

All of a sudden i can't see anything through my viewfinder on my canon 5d (not Mark II) even when I look at a bright light (then it is only a dim blur).

The camera will not turn on after being dropped. When I switch it from off to on, the green power LED flashes briefly. The lens does not move or attempt to extend. The LCD backlight does not illuminate. The LCD appears to be slightly damaged: there is some slight non-uniformity visible when I shine a strong light on it. Otherwise the camera shows no sign of damage. Is it possible that the damaged LCD is preventing the camera from turning on? Is there a hard reset procedure I should try? I've t

My Canon SX210 IS is brand new. Just bought it on yesterday. The problem I'm having is that the LCD screen does not look sharp and clear when focusing on a subject. It looks grainy.
