Live View on new OM-D

Am a confirmed Oly user (OM4ti, E620) and just brought an OM-D. Initially Live View (LV) worked fine and still works with movie. However, in picture mode just get a blank screen when trying to get picture! The viewfinder correctly works when eye is brought near.

It works OK when in info display. Tried reset

I must have altered something! Have updated lens and camera software...

Re: Live View on new OM-D

A couple of things to check. Try pressing the button on the side of the "prism" housing. And try pressing the "OK" button.

Re: Live View on new OM-D

There is a button that toggles the rear screen between live view and static status view on the right hand side of the eye-piece when viewed from the back of the camera. Try that
