X-T100 view mode won't switch back from EVF

My X-T100 will not switch back from EVF view when in "EVF+LCD image display". However, when i turn the camera off the on again the LCD still displays no problem until I bring the camera up to shoot using the EVF, duration which the EVF displays no problem. However, when I bring the camera down again to shoot using the LCD display, the camera seems unable to detect this and won't switch on the LCD while remaining in EVF view. 

Any reasonable solutions? Thanks.

I have not experienced this with my X-T100 but what I usually do in these situations is do a reset :set-up menu 1 then Set-up reset. Do you have firmware 2.00 installed? But even if it has ver 2.00, reinstall it, then do a reset. If the problem still persist you know its a eye sensor problem. It should still be covered by the 2 year warranty.

Ok in the manual on page 12 it indicates that there are 5 modes that you can select by pressing the "View Mode" button : you could be on "EVF only +AUTO" and then the LCD screen will not work, you should be on "sensor+EYE SENSOR " . You have to look in the EVF while you toggle the "View Mode" button to see in which mode you are at present.

My one year old X-T100 is also showing this problem. The eye sensor is triggered when blocked, but then it doesn't revert back when unblocked. Already tried to clean the sensor but no luck.

Might have to trigger the warranty. But I was hopping that a firmware upgrade might adjust the sensitivity.

I came across the same issue as well. Problem solved. 

After inserting a flimsy plastic piece (anything with certain thickness), it is back in business.

It seems this is a problem about the sensitivity of the sensor. 

I first used a screw driver to create a tiny gap in between, and it worked. 

Stupid thing. ^^

Can you elaborate a little bit? I have the same problem on my X-E3

I think the glitch is caused by the round plastic bit adjoining the eye sensor.

The eye sensor is situated at the bottom.

After using the camera for a period, the either side of the eye piece (mine is on the left) somehow starts interfering/blocking the eye sensor. 

If the eye piece was detachable (like the one on X-T1), you would see what's causing the issue.

Sadly, it can't be removed.

I used a small cracked piece from a cell phone screen protector to stuff the gap.

It's safe to insert anything thin and tiny by using a screw driver to pry the edge of the flexible eye piece.

Enlarging the gap does the trick. ^^

Has this worked for anyone else regarding the auto eye sensor operating properly?

any other advice on doing this safely?

The information from the person who said it works appears to be saying push a thin piece of plastic between the round plastic eye cover that goes over the eye sensor? Or am i reading that wrong?

 

Regards

Glen

I wanted to thank West Adam for the tiny-piece-of-plastic-between-sensor-and-eyecup idea. It worked like a charm on an XT100 that has shown this symptom for more than a year now and I was so frustrated with it! Now there is a tiny piece of plastic (in my case cut down from the thing pills come in, if that makes sense) wedged between the eyecup and the sensor exactly where the above photo shows it and now it works like 95% of the time as opposed to 0%. 

Before this I needed to toggle through the EVF modes or turn the camera on/off just to get back to the proximity sensor working.

 

Thanks again!

    • Interesting to hear about the heat issue and sorry for your experiencing it. On the Oregon coast we don't have to worry about heat as it rarely gets above 76 deg. F. I had an opportunity to field test mine on a 7.1 mile hike in the woods of the Oregon coast. We climbed 1,300 feet with different temperature zones on each side of the mountain.  The first thing I noticed is how the closeness of the controls on the small body make it easy to push buttons or hit the shutter button when taking it out and putting it in a bag. It can make for some interesting things appearing in the viewfinder that have to be reset before taking a picture. The size of it is really requiring a different way of handling it. I've owned an X-T10 and I don't remember it being this fiddly. The shutter button release is stiff compared to my X-H2s with its smooth release and the stiffness sometimes made me push a little to hard to get it to focus and I ended up with out of focus images from pushing too hard and tripping the shutter. I really like the sim choice dial as it has a cool semi circle display that shows the film sim selected and a picture of the film canister. I also really like Reala Ace and it has become my fav sim. It will be nice when it is available for my X-H2s. I also did some bird photography with it and my 150-600 and really like the built in digital tele convertors. I noticed very little image degradation even with the 2X multiplier. The issue is the size of the camera to the size of the lens making it difficult to balance so I'll be staying with the X-H2s combo in the future and use the X-T50 for hikes, travel and landscapes. So overall, as with any camera, there are things to like and dislike based on personal preference. What I'm most disappointed in is DXO PR4 not recognizing the files. I'd publish some images but I don't like the way they appear on this site and it wouldn't be a good representation. I will also add to my review from time to time as I use the camera more.
    • 92•F is 33•C and that is pretty damn hot where I come from. If the camera was on the whole time, maybe it could have reached the warning limit without actually having a fault. I don’t know. You did not say which country you are in, I presume USA. The number would be 1-800-800-3854.  https://fujifilm-x.com/en-us/repair-and-product-support/
    • I received my X-T50 two days ago.  I did not have time to take it out until this afternoon.  It is hot today, but not excessively so.  My car thermometer indicated 93 deg F, and the weather app on my phone said 92. I took 30 photos in a span of about 45 minutes.  The camera started feeling very warm and a warning appeared saying I was approaching the high temperature limit.  This would make sense if I were taking videos, but these were just still photos.  Does it seem strange to anyone else that the camera would reach such a high temp at 92-93 degrees ambient temperature?  I have another question. I was looking for a support phone number or email on the Fujifilm website but could not find one.  Does anyone know how to contact Fujifilm support to inquire about this high temperature condition?
    • Something does not seem right. Uncompressed raw files for the X-T5 are supposed to be around 80MB, call it 85MB just to be safe in that assumption. 183 x 85MB = 15555MB, which is about 15.6GB. Even if you are using full sized, fine jpg along with the uncompressed raw files, you would not come close to filling a newly formatted 64GB card with 183 shots. Maybe try a new card?
    • Sometimes, issues like these can be complex and difficult to diagnose, especially if they're intermittent.
