I can't seem to get my G9 set to where the automatic lcd viewfinder/monitor switching works. At one time I had it where the LCD monitor was on and when you put your eye to the viewfinder, it automatically switched to viewfinder view.

Maybe I changed a setting? I can have one or the other functioning by pushing the Fn3 (LVF) button but there should be a setting to have the viewfinder automatically function when the eye triggers the eye sensor and then revert back to LCD display when the eye is away from the viewfinder, and that doesn't seem to be happening anymore.

What am I missing? I'm sure it's something simple.

Not happening for me. ?

If you still have Fn3 assigned to the LVF switching function, there are three settings it cycles through each time its pressed: EVF only, LCD only, automatic switching. When this last one is selected, the words LVF/MON AUTO appear briefly in the top-left of the LCD display.

If it's still not switching when AUTO is selected, then there's an issue with the eye sensor. Perhaps it's got some dust covering it? Try cleaning it off with a soft brush.
