This is quite common with the V1.... simply clean the sensor adjacent to the eyepiece and all should be good!

That's probably the answer but I will add to clean carefully as at least one person here has damaged the little sensor trying to clean it. Try a rocket type blower first and if that fails I used a piece of lens cleaning tissue on the end of a flat wood toothpick and gently wiped a few times. Fixed it right up.

Thanks to both of you for what is probably the answer.  I will try it and report back.

But, can someone tell me how one is supposed to undo the setting of 'DISP to LCD_off', if the LCD remains off and therefore only the EVF is affected by pushing the DISP button?
