GX85 touchscreen going blank

I just bought a Panasonic GX85, and have found some odd touchscreen behavior. I'm trying to figure out if this is a warranty issue, or just my lack of understanding of a feature in the camera.

When I turn the camera vertical for a portrait shot, and then lower it toward a surface (like a floor or table), the touchscreen sometimes goes blank. I can usually get it to turn back on by raising the camera again a few inches, or by touching the screen.

This doesn't happen every time. It's not a question of it going to sleep for lack of use. And it doesn't seem to correspond to how quickly I move the camera.

It's quite annoying, since I lose my view. And it's just this kind of shot when you can't use the viewfinder.

Has anyone experienced this? Is there a solution besides a visit to the shop where I bought the camera?

Thanks.
