Re: T2i With Numbers Jumbled at Bottom of Viewfinder

I have a T2i (550) that hasn't been used in a couple (about 2 years) of years. Occasionally my granddaughter uses it.

Yesterday I was playing with it and noticed when I look in the viewfinder the numbers at the bottom and mostly on the left do not show properly.

Are they in the correct location, or do they look like they are more to the left and bottom than they used to be?  Maybe the camera was dropped or bumped hard.  This can move the overlay in the viewfinder.  It could be a bad connection to the overlay as has been mentioned, or it just failing in general.

The back screen appears to show everything fine and it takes pictures fine.

I really don't want to clear all camera settings but will if anybody has fixed the problem doing that.

Any ideas?
