Camera Display Blacks Out for a Moment

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

The ILCE-9 display may black out for a moment when the NTSC/PAL Selector is set to PAL. This can happen with the viewfinder, LCD screen, or an external monitor connected through an HDMI® cable.

This is not a malfunction. Below are situations where the display may black out:

  • When you start or stop recording movies while the shooting mode is set to a mode other than Image (Movie) or S&Q(Slow and Quick).
  • When you change the shooting mode from Imageor S&Qto another mode.
  • When you play a movie for the first time after you switch to the playback mode.
