Hello canon community,
I was taking my camera ( Canon DSLR EOS Rebel SL2 ) out the other day and noticed the screen was black when I turned the camera on. I then proceeded to go through the buttons starting with the "camera shutter/LCD button" and pressing them in a controlled order to see if maybe something was turned off or stuck. I tried to run through the different menu settings but no visibility of menu on LCD screen. I removed the lense to see if something was stuck, but everything looked and worked fine. I tried all of the other suggestions I could find online ( repeatedly pressing info, changing batteries, cards, plugging and unplugging from all connection ports "HDMI & Data", ) and others in these forums and no luck.
I took my camera outside and noticed I could very dimly see the menu on the screen as if looking at a "negative" through the light. it was just enough visibility to navigate through the menu and change the "LCD Brightness" to full bright..... which helped a little. But, not much.
Viewing LCD Screen is now like looking through a "Negative Film" and is very dim.
What could be my Issue here? TIA
When you are able to see the LCD go to the yellow wrench menu setting page 4 and select clear all settings and clear all custom functions.
If that doesn't resolve your issue you should contact Canon about repair options.
I was able to reach that menu and clear all settings; the only noticeable change is the brightness went down again. Was able to use the suns reflection to navigate back to 2nd menu and turn the brightness back up.
Still seems to be the same issue.
