    I have a RDX 550 and whenever I want to change functions I cannot see it on the display. Like If I were to change modes or Fstops, how do you see it through the lcd? It is like it is tinted that you are not supposed to view it? My main concern is if I want to switch between modes like M and AV how do I know which mode I am in?

    Anyone know how to view the lcd while you are changing the settings? It is like it is tinted once it goes in the housing.

    Do u mean the LCD is going off, Like when u put your face to the viewfinder topside? If so there is an option in the settings to turn this function off so the LDR sensor is deactivated and the LCD display stays on all the time.

    Hope this helps Gary

    Try this to fix issue.

    Ok with my 550d (not sure which firmware u are using but should be the same)

    Press "menu"

    Then across to the first "spanner/wrench"

    Down to "LCD auto off" make this disabled

    hit "menu" again to return to normal (ready to shoot)

    Try covering the 2 small Sensors below the viewfinder and above the LCD. Or put yr eye to the viewfinder.

    Your LCD shouldn't go off now.

    good luck Gary
