Yes. Automatic live view focusing was not very accurate had to do it manually to get it right. Anyhow when I switched out of and back into Live view I needed to do a new manual focus in live view. But every time I went out and back into live view it needed readjustment.

The only possibility I can think of is if you had LV AF set to AF-F (full-time servo AF), which will cause LV to require focus when you re-enter it. What camera is this on btw?

D800.

I am quite sure I had the camera set to AF-S. Can't double check now because the camera and lens is at Nikon Melville despite servicing one and a half weeks ago. By the way what is the default for live view AF-S or AF-F in live view (the manual does not seem to tell).? Nikon reset them to default when they had the camera, I had to do all my own settings once I got it back

Your explanation sound logical for my issue. But I remember checking everything before doing the tests, That does however not mean that it's absolute.
