EOS Rebel t7i Warning Icon

JoeMcDonald

I am getting a warning icon in my viewfinder (an exclamation point). It only comes on in modes of P, Tv, Av and M.

What does this mean and how to fix/correct?

There are a couple of possibilities, but first have a look in your instruction manual (NOT the Basic one!), on P395 - there is a list of events that will cause the display of the exclamation mark.

The “!” warning only appears if it is enabled by a Custom Function. 
The warning can be for set for Monochrome, White Balance, or Noise Reduction.

Hi Mike:
I think we both offered the same solution, I just wanted to point the OP to where they could have found it in the first place.

Yes, it is essentially the same info. I thought I would expand it a bit for people with other cameras, who have no interest in downloading a T7i manual.
