LCD on a1 goes blank for a short period of time
Just got our A1 3 days ago from There's a lot to learn. One question I noticed that sometimes when I move the camera to waist level the LCD goes completely dark. I've also noticed it when I move it up. The camera isn't off since the display reappears after several seconds. Is this a 'feature' or do I have a bad circuit?
Thx for the help.

May be you are activating the auto-switching between the EVF and LCD... Take a look in the EVF to see if it's on instead (when the LCD goes blank).

You can select: 1 - the EVF to be on all the time, 2 - the LCD on all the time, or 3 - auto-switch between the EVF and LCD... There's a lever to make this selection and if you have left it on auto-switch depending on the camera position it might select the wrong display if you hold the camera too close to your body... :wink:
