Ok I just posted that I had the same problem and I just figured it out by trial and error. What I did was press the playback button. press OK it will take you to the edit picture menu and the first choice is D-lighting. It should be highlighted Yellow. press Ok and then the screen will come up with 2 of your picture with different lighting. choose which ever one you want then press OK. The image will save and then the camera info should go away. I have NO idea why this worked but it did and I hope this works for you!!
Hi, I just used "Solution #2" by grace 130, and then I pushed the "down directional key" which brought up the histogram. Try pushing the up/down directional buttons to make that information go away while you are view a picture.

Re: camera settings appear on viewfinder screen
This is by design.
An excerpt from the manual on page 22 says "Shooting information is also displayed after the shutter-release button is released when On is selected for Auto Shooting info (pg 83) and immediately after the camera is turned on.To hide the shooting information, press the (Info) button again. The display format depends on the option selected for "Info display format" in the setup menu (pg 81)

I am not sure what is the problem. You say no"picture"..is the screen totally black? Even when you try to preview photos in your camera memory? If so there is a problem with the hardware, LCD screen battery, or some other part.
If you mean you only see numbers and photo setting information on the LCD, that is normal for this Rebel models. The picture only appears in the viewfinder. It does not have a "live view' function to switch the image from the viewfinder to the LCD while you are shooting, as later model have. I have such a model and it is very disappointing.

Like all point and shoot cameras, PhotoPC's viewfinder is not 100 percent accurate and will slightly magnify the subject. The actual picture will always appear to have been taken further away than what the user views through the viewfinder.
