 Post subject: Mystery "Icon"???
PostPosted: Thu Apr 26, 2012 9:02 pm 
My Lumix G3 is showing an icon in the lower right of the view finder. It is a small black box with white letters "LOCK" on the left and a white down arrow on the right and two white horizontal bars below the arrow.

Can anyone tell me what this icon means and how do I get rid of it?

Thanks for any help, Jim

Sounds to me like the touchscreen prompt. If so, you might check your manual under AF Tracking to see if there's a way to disable it. (Or maybe disable the touchscreen entirely, if you don't use it and that's possible on the G3.)

Thanks for your reply. The icon showed up in the EVF and the LCD panel. It was the AE lock icon and it somehow got stuck in the on state. I had to do a reset to factory settings to get rid of it.

Thanks, Jim
