Phillip, I suspected you had a problem with your display. Before I read your latest post I ran a little test to see how LiveView affected battery life.

I set up my D3200 with a fully charged battery using the AFS 18-55mm mounted on a tripod with VR off. I turned on LiveView and with a stopwatch focused and shot a photo every 15 seconds for a 15 minute period. I was distracted by the telephone ringing for about 30 seconds so I shot a few extra shots. So in 15 minutes and taking 68 shots with the LV on the whole time the battery still showed a full charge. I doubt that that my camera or battery is exceptional so I don't think LiveView is as bad on battery usage as some people think.
