Re: G9 Eyecup issue

Mine was refusing to switch on occasion so I started removing rubber from around the eye sensor. This worked for a while and then not, so I eventually took it apart and removed all the rubber that might block the sensor. That was about 6 months ago, it's worked just fine since. Here is the finished operation, front and back. Not terribly unattractive. Have no idea why the sensor got less sensitive.  I would only try this if yours works fine without the eye cup in place.  I don't think it would help otherwise.
