Hi Fellow Nikonians,
Here’s the story: in the past few weeks my Z6 while performing flawlessly in taking images has twice had monitor failure. In both cases despite having the camera on the switch viewfinder to monitor setting (& the settings on the side button & menu were correct & I have the up-to-date firmware) the monitor would only display the I-menu...this was also the case when I switched to “monitor only”—no live view image appeared. The first time this happened the situation righted itself on its own (as I reported in this forum a while ago) after about an hour, but in the second instance the other day I had to reset everything to the camera defaults to get things working again. I was using the camera indoors so I don’t think cold weather would be an issue. I also removed the rubber eyepiece each time & cleaned the sensor (I use the Hoodman replacement )—the original eyepiece for whatever reason started to get brittle). I have scoured Nikon USA & not found a reason for these issues. & have not seen a `for sure’ resolution in this forum.I’m not a professional so don’t have access to NPS.

Is there a `for sure’ solution to this puzzle?
