This usually is caused by dust on the sensor.
Since your camera is equipped with an automatic cleaning system, you can try to run a few cleaning cycles - see section "Automatic Sensor Cleaning" in the user manual.

If this doesn't help, the next thing you can try is to blow the dust off, using a blower bulb, as shown in the first part of this video:

To open the shutter for manual cleaning, you use the "Sensor cleaning: Manual" function of your camera.

If you are unable to remove all the dust with the blower, I would recommend performing a wet cleaning, as shown in the first video on this page:

If you want to do this yourself, order the proper cleaning kit for your camera. Use a professional product, recommended for use with your camera, don't make any experiments!
Alternatively (may be the better idea, actually), have the sensor cleaned in a camera repair shop.

For further information just google "DSLR sensor cleaning"...

If the picture is taken vertically in EOS 400D SLR, there will be a black shade appearing in right side of the image. This issue was not there earlier. In recent times it started happening. It works fine...


I would be interested in seeing the dark image... check that its not the camera strap or some other part of your own pereson. Hold the camera UNDER the lens and take a vertical, noting where the camera strap is at the time. Perhaps put an example on one of the free photo sites and send us the link.
There is nothing inside a camera that should move and put a dark image on any pic.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Sometimes when i'm taking picture my flash wont stop blinking for a few seconds.


The 400D uses flash assisted focusing. In low light conditions the auto focus cannot get a focus lock so it pops the flash a few times so the lens has a chance to focus. You will notice this will go away when in the manual focus mode (the switch on the side of the lens).

The only way around this problem (as people in a photo think the photo has already been taken and looks away when the camera actually takes the picture) is to use a hotshoe mounted TTL Canon Speedlight (430ex or 580ex) which use an infra-red focussing beam.

My EOS 300d blank images


That problem is normally associated with having a too high shutter speed when using flash. If it happens in any mode, with or without flash you may have a shutter blind issue.

Test the camera at various shutter speeds and compare the results. If this black area is consistant across different shutter speeds, send it in for repair. It is most likely the shutter curtain not making a pass across the sensor fast enough, still obscuring the sensor when a photo was taken.

Canon eos 400d


Contact Canon - some makes of lens which are not Canon are not electronically compatible for various reasons, and can actually damage the camera. So, get using the phone and check if it is compatible before doing anything else - but personally, I would not use the lens until I find out

Date on pictures taken and movie shooting on canon eos 400d


The EOS Digital Rebel, EOS Digital Rebel XT and EOS Digital Rebel XTi do not support stamping the date and time on the image.

It is not possible to record the date and time as part of the image at the time the picture is taken. However, the date and time is captured in the EXIF information of the image at the point of capture. It is possible to print the image with the date and time via printing software. Please see the documentation for the software package that you use for printing images for the proper procedure.

Images shoe up red


sounds like you might have an overheating CCD. Turn off the camera for couple of hours and when you try again if this happens again, return it to the store you got it from for warrenty repairs.
