Problem?

Is there any reason why the camera says it's in Tav mode when I put the mode dial to M?did I accidentally alter/press something to change the 'M' function?
Thanks
Tracy

To do fully manual exposure, you also need to switch from auto-ISO to fixed ISO via the ISO button. The fact the camera doesn't make this change automatically when using the M position on the dial seems to be an oversight by the programmers.
