Do you mean he's disabled LiveView, or doesn't know which button on the back to push ?

Look up LiveView settings in the Instruction Manual that came with the camera.

Or is a PDF on the software disc.

Or you can download from Canon UK.

If he's disabled LiveView, settings are in one of the camera menus if you scroll through them.

He should just be able to press the start/stop button to the right of the viewer. It's worth checking that he has not moved the switch to the red 'video' mode. In this setting the start/stop button acts as the control for shooting video on the camera. 

There is also a menu option 'Live View Shoot' which has an option of enable and disable. On my 7d mk2 this is in the first set of menus as indicated by the camera icon. If this is set to disable then the start/stop button will have no effect. I assume the same menu option is available in the 7d.
