g5x lcd turning off when idle
« on: 09 / July / 2020, 02:10:33 »
hi! I just learned from youtube there's a workaround regarding removing camera overlay and I guess I just came here to ask for help regarding my problem with my camera. I wanted to use my camera for streaming so I went and bought all the equipment needed for the job (dummy batter, hdmi, capture card) not knowing I would encounter this problem. The lcd turns off when idle. Now when it turns off, obs doesn't recognize it anymore so I have to manually press any button to have lcd display. I tried everything and I think I may need to do some tinkering.

My camera is an old g5x. I don't have any idea what I'm about to do. Please help. Thanks!

You should be able to avoid this by setting "Disable LCD off" to "Always" in the CHDK menu under "CHDK Settings".

Problems with this setting have been reported on some cameras, see https://chdk.setepontos.com/index.php?topic=13993.0 but I think so far that specific issue has only been reported on ILC cams.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
