Hi Ken,
Can you see the on-screen menu ok?
Do you have a different memory card you can try?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Pete,
No other memory card. I can view all recent photos on the card also can view menu ok
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
Ok, there is a small sensor that detects when your eye is at the viewfinder and switches to it. If the viewfinder is on all the time then the sensor may need cleaning. Locate the sensor close to the viewfinder and try cleaning it.
Let me know if that works?
