Monitor unreliable

When I go to use touch screen, the screen goes off as my hand approaches it.
Anyone know why, please?

Re: Monitor unreliable

Sounds like you have the eye sensor set to turn off the LCD and activate the EVF
Your hand is making the sensor think its your eye approaching it

Exactly....

The other one to watch out for is rain getting on the eye level sensor!

Re: Monitor unreliable

Thank you both. I had missed the little button controlling the eye view and screen view.
Iíll try to not go out when it is raining!
