I can only get live view

OK I hope I am explaining this right. I lent out my k-r to a friend. When I got it back I realized that I can only see the imagine that I want to take a picture from live view. Meaning when live view is not turned on. I only see my settings. What buttons did he either turn on or off. I cannot figure it out.

Go to the Menu settings and reset your camera settings. Might be the simpler way....

The only thing you should be seeing is your settings unless you are in live view. During normal shooting you should only be able to see what you are shooting through the finder, not on the back LCD

I think he means that he can't see the info display overlaid on the image when in live view.
Don't have a k-r - somebody else help.

I think your image review time has just been set to zero. Go to...

Instant Review
Display Time
Change to something other than "Off"

(I turn mine off sometimes for timelapses to save battery.)

Sounds like its your statis screen turned on, if you see all the setting like shutterspeeed, aperature, Jepg, SR, ISO ect ect. You can go to the menu and turn that Statis srceen to off. It will then only come up when you press the INFO button.

Thanks I believe the problem might be solved. I have reset the menu and it was also turning the statis screen off and turning on display time.I think these three might solve my confusion.
