Fuji TX-2/XpanII LCD question

Hello

I just picked up a Fuji TX2 that seems to be in great shape. However... with film loaded and the camera turned off, the LCD panel with the # of exposures remaining remains on (the one next to the shutter button). It never turns off. The main LCD on the camera back turns off.

The manual states:
1. Set the shooting mode selector to OFF
2. All indications on all three LCD's disappear

Is the manual incorrect (it happens) or is there something wrong with the camera?

Thanks
Huss

I have a near mint TX2 and mine shows the # of exposures all of the time (the top LCD, by the OFF knob) - it must be a feature, not a bug!

That's normal, if nothing is displayed on that screen your batteries are flat.

Thank you so much gentlemen! (Breathes sigh of relief!)
Funny that the manual is incorrect, but I suspected that it may be so.
Interesting that all the LCDs on the original Xpan and TX-1 turn off.

Kind regards
Huss
