    I have a weird issue with Live Control mode not displaying what I’m shooting. I’ve set my camera up so I can use super control. Using the info to toggle back and forth works, EXCEPT the live view doesn’t display ..just black or showing or “framing pictures in the monitor”. Shutter speed etc is being displayed and the preview of the shot shows up, so I know the monitor is working.

    Any ideas what I can do?

    I’ve even tried resetting the camera and doesn’t seem to work.

    Is it working in the EVF? Did you push the [O] button accidentally (next to the EVF) and switched between EVF and LCD?

    "The camera can be configured to switch between the viewfinder and
    monitor displays either automatically or manually. Press and hold the
    [O] button until the automatic display toggle menu is displayed and
    select an option using (up and down arrows). Pressing the [O] button toggles between the monitor and
    viewfinder displays."
