1 DX- Blinking Black Square in Viewfinder
Aug 23, 2014

Hi everyone,

I apologize if this has been asked before; I did a brief search and couldn't come up with anything. I just got my 1 DX back from a routine clean and check. Perhaps this was always there, but now I notice, that when I am in One Shot or AI Servo, there is a constant black blinking square in my viewfinder, which is separate from my focus points. It is to the far right of the viewfinder "grid" (3 o'clock position)

It is present when, under the "AF point display during focus" option is selected as "Selected (constant)" as well as "Selected (pre-AF, focused).

It is NOT visible when I select the "Selected (focused)" option.

It is also NOT visible when I separate the AF points under the "Orientation linked AF point" option, and shoot is portrait mode?! It IS visible under these settings when I shoot in landscape mode.

Is there any way to disable this What am I missing. I may be craze, but I never noticed this until I received my camera back.

BTW, I have the latest firmware, 2.0.3

Thank you for any info
