Help Please - Rear screen problem.

Shooting with my OM-D E-M5, the rear screen suddenly blanked out.

The EVF works normally.

The rear screen does not show the image when composing.

The rear screen does show all the information such as shutter speed aperture ISO etc.

Pressing the replay button shows recorded images as normal.

The screen shows Video recording as normal, and also replay.

The screen seems to be completely functional, except for composing still images.

I would appreciate any advice or assistance please.

Thanks in advance. . .

Re: Help Please - Rear screen problem.

Have you accidentaly pressed the "Liveview" button on the side of the viewfinder?

Regards.

Re: Help Please - Rear screen problem.

Supposing I was somewhere dark and wanted to temporarily shut off Live View, what would I do? Probably spend a while fruitlessly searching through the menus. . .
