Help pls. Black LCD screen:(...

Hi folks,

Not sure if anyone can help me here, I have an event coming up, and so I’ve been experimenting with a manual flash (an AF 50 Cactus ttl for Nikon) on my XA-1 Fuji. Now the flash works perfectly, once I figured out exposure, SS, etc. ( it’s a quite powerful flash gun by the way) I soon found out that, on manual mode on the cam.I have to dial down SS and ignoring the exposure that the camera on live is being giving, but doing that, the LCD screen also turn...DARK! To the point that I have to take my photo completely blind! So my question is is there a way around this issue pls. .?I did some search, and it seems that on other Fuji models,( XT-1, XE-2,etc..) in the menu settings, there is an option on how to solve this?...

Any input will be greatly appreciate thanks
