Re: Canon Rebel T6i

The lens cap wasn't on but I was testing the camera out in my bedroom which is very dark at times. Yes, I can see through the viewfinder it just won't take a picture through it.

Go out on a sunny day and shoot in green square mode. How does that work?

 

It should take a picture even with a bad exposure. Does it focus through the viewfinder?

Re: Canon Rebel T6i

I went out today and tried to take some pictures, I was able to take as many pictures I wanted through the monitor but once I switched over to the viewfinder I was only able to take one picture and then the whole camera froze. Also in daylight, the 15 changed to a 30. 

 

At approx. 5:00 at night (w/ no daylight) I tried to take a picture through the viewfinder in my kitchen and it was blurry nothing would focus. However, the monitor was able to focus and I was able to take pictures.

Re: Canon Rebel T6i

Did you do this first?

 

"Did you go in the menus under tools and do clear all settings?  That is a reset to factory. There may be some custom settings that need to be reset also. Consult your manual about resetting the camera."

 

If you didn't, you learned nothing.  If you did the camera/lens is broken and needs service. Simple? If you did not do the reset properly you didn't reset the camera completely.

Yes. I did reset the camera (to the default factory setting) following directions from some youtube videos. Thank-you for your help. I will look into it getting it serviced.
