Hi Dennisthemenace!

 

Just above the optical viewfinder on the back of the camera is a small Display-Off Sensor.  It senses when you put you face up to the back of the camera to look through the viewfinder and shuts off the LCD.  You can disable this in the menu by doing the following:

  1. Press MENU.
  2. Select the [Tools #2] tab.
  3. Select [LCD auto off].
  4. Select [Disable].

If this is a time sensitive-matter, additional support options are available at Contact Us.

How quickly does it go black? It will not stay lit indefinitely. It will shut off it there is no activity.

Is the rubber viewfinder eyepiece displaced upwards?
