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.
