I was hoping someone may have an idea before I try to reset the camera.

 

I have always used the Eye Sensor setting and it has worked without issue.

 

This Christmas I switched to just LCD because I let me wife and mother-in-law take a few pictures. I noticed that the flash stuck (before I handed it to them to use) and would not flip up by itself. I needed to put my fingernail in the gap to help it open. Coincidentally, when I switched it back to Eye Sensor mode, the camera no longer switches to the LCD. It stays on Eye Sensor. Also, EVF + Eye Sensor does not seem to turn off the EVF. I can see into it when I hold it at arms length.

 

Is there an issue with my camera? I keep it in an ONA bag when not in use and I don't remember it hitting anything and definitely not falling.

 

I have tried cleaning the sensor, but that did nothing.

 

BTW, the LCD works fine if I turn it to that setting.

 

Thanks,

 

-Lou

Try pressing the "Disp/Back" button to scroll through the screen options!

Why on earth did you think cleaning the sensor would do anything to help!

You might also consider a reset!

Mike, Lou probably meant the eye (cheek) proximity sensor near the viewfinder, not the image sensor. Nice hat, Lou. What camera ? Try a reset, sorry there is nothing else I can think of. Good luck with this, Lou. All the best for the coming year to both of you.

Yes indeed! Cycle through the VF modes using the view mode button on the right hand side of the VF!

Happy new year you as well, George

Yes, I meant the eye sensor, not the image sensor.

 

Sorry, I thought that I said the model. I have the X-T10. 

 

I have scrolled through the VF options, but nothing. A reset did not even help.

 

Looks like a call to Fuji is next. :(

I have an X-T10 myself. Sorry to hear that. I hope they'll fix it for you quickly. Let us know.

Check the shooting mode dial. EVF+Eye Sensor only works in S, CL, CH, BKT1, and BKT2 modes. In ADV1, ADV2, Multiple-exposure, and Panorama modes it leaves the EVF on.

 

No, I have no clue why that is.

 

However, normal Eye Sensor mode should switch between EVF and LCD in all shooting modes.

Spoke to Fuji Tech Support. They want me to send the body in for warranty work.

 

Shipped out today.

 

They said about 2 weeks until shipped back as an estimate. I should have a definitive date by the end of the week.
