Canon legria FS306 How to remove screen displays on

Canon legria FS306 How to remove screen displays on playback ?

Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your

By 'screen displays on playback', do you mean menu or status indicator things, that are in the periphery of the picture/image/video on playback?

If so, which ones? I have to ask, in case they are somehow specific ones requiring specific disablements.

OK, thanks for the response and the information. I am looking up how to eliminate those from the display (if that is possible.)

For what it's worth, this works on a Canon Vixia:



[wrench icon]

Output Onscreen Displays

(and turn that to OFF instead of ON.)

It's that simple, on a Vixia anyway. See if that guides you to the right setting, while I look for Legria-specific information.

(Let me know *if* it works, please.)

Here are some specifics for your Legria model line:

- the DISP/BATT INFO button, when pressed (over and over again a certain number of times) can turn those onscreen info display items off (or on) in sequence. So press, look at the display, press again, until what you don't want on the display is gone.

There's also specific settings... I'm looking those up too. If this is enough answer, though, please rate my answer. Five-stars would be appreciated!

Yea I had read the Canon Vixia solution on line but the legia does not seem tohave that option !

Try the DISP/BATT INFO button, repeatedly.

There's this specific:

In the Display Options (among your Legria's settings) there is the


option, which when Off, turns off those indicators when playback is displayed on external monitor or TV.

Again, if this answers your question, please rate my answer - highly! Thanks.

Ok Russell it worked by pressing the Disp/battery button - thanks for 5 star response !
Do I have to process the £10 balance or is it removed automatically ?

Good to hear that my advice worked as it should.

Thank you for five stars... I appreciate that.

As for processing the payment... I have no power and don't really know (Customer Support at knows about and deals with these things, you can get in touch with them through means incl. phone # here: ), but I may very approximately indicate that it is probably taken care of - thanks again.
