Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of any trouble you may be having.

Since this is a NEW camera, you may want to "explore" the menu system and the ways to navigate through the different parts of the system.

If you take a look at that "Basic Menu Operations section (starting on page 10), I believe that will give you a good overview of how to use the Menu button and the "multi selector" to perform most functions AND how to use the different parts of the multi selector to MOVE between different parts of the menu system.

I believe page 11 shows that you want to get to the "wrench" - which is really a "tab" on that page. If you are looking at the Shooting menu, you should be able to touch the LEFT ARROW part of the Multi selector - to get to the "Tabs" section. Once there, use the UP and DOWN arrows to highlight the wrench, and the press the OK part of the multi selector.

NOTE: All of this can take a bit of time to get used to - and PRACTICE & exploring the system is the best way to "get to know" the system.

By the way, if you would like the manual in electronic (PDF) form, I have a link to that version below.

I hope this helps. Please let me know what happens when you try moving into and through the TABS section, or if you have any more questions.

If this has answered your question(s), please take a moment to rate MY service level (Excellent is my goal) so that I get credit for helping you with this question.
You should see some "stars" to do that, but please let me know if you do NOT see them (you may have to scroll UP or DOWN) or can not use them.

Thanks, ***** *****
