My barely used T2I wont take a photo with the LCD on. I have tried it in every mode and reset settings but for some reason when I click the button to switch it to LCD view and try to take a photo it wont release the shutter. You can ONLY shoot through the viewfinder. Is this normal? I havent used this camera in a few years but dont remember this from before. Its so frustrating..

In low light and depending on the lens, AF may not lock. So, you won't be able to take a picture. Try doing Live View in something well lit, perhaps outdoors. If that works then low light is your likely problem in which case I would bump up the ISO.
Also, how close is it to the camera? Too close will not let it shoot either.

Thanks for your reply. I am shooting outdoors super bright sun. Apparently you cant shoot using the LCD. VERY disappointing. I haven’t used this camera in years. I use the LUMIX ZS100 now but my son is in photography class and he is using my T2i. We went out to take photos and he wanted to take a ground level shot but couldnt unless you lay on the muddy ground! Grr. Oh well.

Thanks John! I will give it a shot if the firmware will finish its install... I did get it to shoot in movie mode but I had to hold the shutter release for 5 seconds before it would take a photo.. :-( Who has that kind of time when you are taking action shots??

I have not tried the lens in manual focus. If/when the firmware finishes (its been 35 minutes) I will try that. I have tried it with both of my lenses the 70-200mm and my 28-135. This firmware is worrying me tho.. Its taking SO long!
