X-Vario screen display - serious problem

A couple months ago the screen on my X-Vario did not light up when I turned the camera on. It was as dark as when the camera is switched off. I removed the battery and put it back in and it seemed to work normally after that. Recently, however, it has started happening more often, and several times I haven't been able to make the screen display work. It appears that the focusing, exposure metering, shutter etc are not affected. I took some pictures by just aiming the camera at the subject and they look fine.
 

I don't think it has to do with the battery-fully charged or low charge has made no difference. The camera was not much used and has been very well cared for. Right now the screen is working again, but for how long?

Has anybody had this problem?

If you have an optional EVF, does that work consistently? I have not experienced your problem, neither can I recall a case reported here.

Thanks. I do have the evf and will try to see if it works once I return from my trip.


Indeed I searched for "Screen" in topic titles on this forum and nothing came up so I assume it's not a common issue.

Could well be a bad contact on a flex inside - an easy repair.

But ... Leica Camera no longer offer support or repairs for any X series camera and independent service agencies might not be willing to investigate. 

OP have you tried using a different SD card   —  and preferably a well known established brand?

I'll give it a try next time the problem happens. Current card is SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB. I have a 2GB same brand as a backup. Thanks
