It stays on continuously. When I turn the camera on it doesn't even do sensor cleaning but opens to the screen and it stays. Looked in busch's book but don't see a means to tunn it off. No doubt it is only something a newb to the 7d would ask. :oops:

Thank you

What happens if you press the "Q" button?

If the screen stays on and you want it to be off, hit the INFO button, that will cycle through the screen options of on, off or the in camera level.

Has no effect, just stays on.

Had it been the quick control screen, you would have been able to change things right on that screen. You saw the info screen, where nothing can be changed, just viewed.
