I love my EOS RP (had it nearly a year), but every now and then I hate it. I'm in hate mode. I was changing settings in the wrench menu and managed to changed a setting that blanked the touch screen. Now I'm stuck because the screen won't display the menus.
I've tried turning the camera off and on. I've tried removing the battery and replacing it after 5 minutes. Still no joy.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Is your lock switch set to on?
Also, here are the menu settings where you could have disabled the touch screen found in your manual:
How do I do that with a blank screen? Normally, resetting the camera back to default is a menu item under the wrench menu. But with no access to the menus because the touch screen is blank, I'm stuck.
What mode is the camera in? Try P mode and see if that makes a difference. When you press the menu button, nothing shows on the screen? Are you able to review photos that you have taken?
That's the solution! I didn't realize the menus would show up in the viewfinder when the "menu" button was displayed. That allowed me to returned the display settings to "auto" from "manual", and the screen came back.
For the record, I also tried almost every mode and every button and nothing would display on the screen. It was well and truly black. (Couldn't review images).That was weird! I'll have to read-up on the "manual" setting.
Thanks for your help!
