Hi, have you fixed this issue? I have the same issue. Do you know the cause of it?

John has provided the best advice. I am not familiar with the hinge on the back of this body.  Maybe it has loosened up or become bent.

If you've checked for any loose or missing screws and haven't found any, it's possible that the hinge mechanism that controls the movement of the flip screen may be damaged. This is a common issue with flip screens and can often be repaired with the help of a professional camera repair service. It's also possible that the gap is a result of a misalignment of the flip screen or its components, which can sometimes be corrected by adjusting the screws or other components that control the alignment of the screen. I used to film on that camera as well but had so many problems with it that switched to my iPhone for filming videos. Now I film on my phone and edit directly on TikTok. After I post anything I also use SocCeleb services.
