Rear LCD on my Sony A7R V Does not Display any Live View Image — SOLVED

Sony A7R V

The rear LCD on the Sony A7R V will not display a Live View image.

But it displays menus just fine, so the screen itself is operational.

Camera is supposed to switch between EVF and rear LCD automatically via:

Thinking that a sensor could be involved, I programmed a button for Finder/Monitor Sel. When I toggle that, the EVF goes blank/black, but nothing appears on the rear LCD panel—neither display has any Live View image. I can then toggle it again and the EVF comes back.

This might have started after the 2.01 firmware update, but not sure.

Powering on/off and/or pulling battery changes nothing.

Defective camera, firmware bug?

Contact me if you think you have an idea.

Solved!

Sony A7R V: Monitor Off hidden

Hidden without scrolling down is the Monitor Off setting, with no indication it exists. It is one of the various displays that can be toggled-to, with off meaning black screen, nothing display. For night shooting or some such.

Uncheck it so that you cannot toggle into it.

Or use the DISP button to toggle to another screen.

What got me is that I had no idea that I had somehow toggled DISP to off.

Below, there it is at the end. It can be seen ONLY if you scroll down; then it will appear. Uncheck the box to remove it as one of the displays.

FYI.... I am very well aware of the black screen and have it as a choice with my Sony's. Why? There may be times I want to be completely stealth in evening situations. With a black screen and the cam set up just right, I can take images in darker places and not disturb anyone around me.

DIGLLOYD: or be noticed. RTFM on me.
