Hi. Welcome to justanswer.

You will need to increase the screen brightness.

Scroll down. Do you see LCD BRIGHTNESS

I got it :) However how does this help see the screen in sunglight which unfortunately I don't have atm
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 11 months ago.

Set it to maximum

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 11 months ago.

When the screen is bright enough, you will be able to view it clearly in sunlight due to the relative brightness

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I've set it to max. now will have to wait for sunshine to try it out again :)

Can I ask another quick question?
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 11 months ago.

Yes

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
When I switch on the camera - I get a message that the display with deactivate - is there a setting causing this? It's like there is no time for me to set things up to take a picture
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 11 months ago.

The setting that automatically deactivates the screen cannot be turned off.

However, you can adjust the timing of the setting (Display Off) so that the screen stays on for up to 3 minutes.

Use the following procedure to change the settings for [Display Off].

1. Press the power button to turn the camera on.

2. Press the [MENU] button.

Now go to settings, and turn off the ECO MODE

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 11 months ago.

Also, under Power Saving option, set the DISPLAY OFF to maximum 3 minutes

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Ah that makes sense now. Thank you very much for your help.
