    I seem to have an interesting problem with my E-M5 that just started happening a few days ago. After switching the EVF off and then back on, I now can only get LIve View to work in SCN and video record modes. I can't seem to get LIve View to work in S,P, M, IAUTO or ART modes. It's very strange because since I bought the camera last June I've turned the EVF off and on countless times and never have had this issue occur before. I tried doing a soft reset but the problems still persists. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Ann addendum to my original post: In S,P, M, IAUTO or ART modes, the LCD displays a screen with the horizontal and vertical level indicators. Pressing the "info" takes you to a blank screen or the SCP screen.

    Press the button on the RHS of the view finder hump, it toggles live view modes.

    Brilliant, Paul! I thought the button just switched the EVF from Auto to Manual. Anyway, it did the trick. Thanks.
