Customer Question
Is there a way...

Is there a way to turn off the standby (white) and record (button) near the top and dead center of the display screen in the Canon Vixia Hf G40? The buttons are not recorded to video, but the do show up in video Webcasting. The only solution I have found is to slightly enlarge the browser screen in my Webcasting software.

Technician's Assistant: What Canon model do you have?

As I said above, I have a Canon Vixia HF G40.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Canon printer?

I an not asking about a printer. I am asking about a video camera, the G40.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

I think my above information covers the issue.
