Default Z1 flash problem

I just got a Z1 before Christmas and noticed that during the taking of a flash picture the viewfinder blanks as the shutter is pressed and stays blank untill after the flash fires! So during the actual taking of the picture you see nothing! Is this normal????
Can't find a way to contact Minolta to find out from them!

When You push the shutter-button halfway (to focus) You must always see the object.
When the button is pushed down it will take some second without screen because the camera is working.
Red lamp beside the screen will flash.

After reading a few forums cos I had similar issues, It seems that the camera does this to conserve power. When the batteries are getting a bit low, the camera shuts down the LCD while it is performing power intense functions like charging the flash or saving a picture.

If thats not what the problem is, Id appreciate it if you would let me know if you find out what it was.
