Welcome to the forums - good to have you on board

Did the upgrade complete properly (and did you get a message on screen saying so)?

Have you tried a reset (accessible from the setup menu, 3rd tab)?

Does manual mode show up as TAv? If so, just disable auto ISO.

Adam is right. TaV mode sometime change M mode. I think I used reset and it back TaV.
