Hi,

Is shooting information displayed under the picture and a graph shown to the right? OR the single frame in the left corner with multiple empty boxes?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Under the picture the only word is AUTO and to the right of the picture there are 4 little colored pictures or graphs: the colors are white, green, red and blue. Hope this helps.
Camera and Video Technician: Russell A., Camera and Video Technician replied 8 years ago
OK,

Press the [INFO] button 5 times to get back to a normal display. The instructions and pictures are on page 103 of the user manual.

That didn't work either. When I take a picture its still only showing a small picture in the left hand corner of the camera - even after I tried doing what you suggested.

Camera and Video Technician: Russell A., Camera and Video Technician replied 8 years ago
OK,

The simple way to solve this is to use the reset option explained on page 118. This will set the camera to the default settings.

I don't seem to have the RESET BUTTONS showing up according to my book. I have the pictures that look like a camera with a number 1 & 2 by them and when I go into either one of them it goes back to the screen showing the presets.
Camera and Video Technician: Russell A., Camera and Video Technician replied 8 years ago
One more to try.

Press [MENU]
Arrow to the Playback tab (the box with the right arrow)
In the first Selection choose (1)
Press OK
This should set the review to Single Frame mode See page 184
