By the way the camera doesn't open, i.e. the lens doesn't advance either.
Actually, this time the lens did advance, but still no picture on lcd screen.
I know about hitting the displace button to get the screen back on...but why does it go off ?
Is this something built in ..and if so why??
In your settings, check your Power Saving settings where you can set the time before the LCD turns off automatically. Yours may be set for a short time. You can also turn off the power saving so it will never turn off too.
Thanks I will try that.
