live view curtain close?

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

new issue, after 1+ year of struggling with RF focusing issue.   I just had all the lenses fixed at Wetzlar, I just came back from Germany few days ago.  Now the live view curtain is close in random manner.  Problems never stop and I am super exhausted.  I wish someone here knows what is the problem and knows how to fix it.

I press the LV button again it comes back, but it goes black again after maybe few to 10 times of switching LV on and off.  I have tried to reinstall the firmware (to flush whatever was wrong) but it doesn't allow me to update to a same firmware 2.0.5

I don't want to ship, wait, fix, and create another new problem again and again... I felt like running in circle.

Turn the live view off and leave it off.

LV is so noisy on my M240 that i use it only randomly if any but i would try to turn auto review off and see what happens. Don't ask me why it's just what i'm doing personally.

This behavior of LV "wizardries" occured to me mainly with M10.

Some explanations : only with some LTM lenses with cutout adapter (on M 6bit sensor visible) and I forgot to set "No lens Detection",

and sometimes with the M lens but when the M gets hot in use (must wait to be able to use it again), with Visoflex 020 eye detection can be not so effective

(not the same with M + EVF2 which this feature is "manual")

and sometimes without explanation when I use Visoflex 020 (maybe false contacts ?), but you don't use EVF2,

do you ?

yes I do use EVF2, however this problem happens on both EVF2 and Live View.

How about a System Reset? Maybe even download/Install the latest Operating System!  A Question - Did you buy the camera New or Pre Owned? Hopefully through Leica Dealer- Speak with them..If you purchased Used privately - Then !!

I bought it new in SF last year and still under warranty.  It seems to be a firmware issue or circuit board issue.  I will try reset and see, thanks for the idea.  I tried to reinstall the firmware but it doesn't allow me since it's the same version 2.0.5

Why not phone Leica Service!

I'm in contact with Wetzlar.  But I wish to solve this by myself, so I post this issue here to see if anyone had experience and knows the work around.  Shipping it back and forth is time consuming.  Since I don't use EVF often I can deal with it until next time I stop by Germany.
