Canon G5X Cant get picture on flip out screen

This is very odd. Whatever I do I can't get the image on the flip-out screen, it's always only in the viewfinder. It does flash up briefly when I power the camera up but then no joy. I tried doing a Reset All but no joy;(.

Can’t remember if the G5X has an eye sensor on the viewfinder, might be worth checking if it is blocked or dirty, which would account for the black screen. worth a try!

Thanks, that seemed to be it.  Shame there is not a viewfinder/screen button.  Would be usefull.
