Just posting this on RFF for the records.
I am the second owner of the M 240, I purchased it in April 2015.
The camera functioned 100% fine until about a week ago. LiveView suddenly stopped working. One minute it was fine, then suddenly -- nothing. Black screen.
When you press the 'LV' button, the shutter clicks and the LCD screen pretends it's in LV mode, but the image is black.
Whatever is wrong with the camera, it also affects the 'Sensor Clean' mode. The shutter will not stay open, not even momentarily.
And again, the same glitch affects the Multi-Field metering function.
Fortunately, I can still use the camera in 'classic' mode. But LiveView was very handy for shooting legacy glass, among other things.
Solutions I've tried:
- swap batteries
- change SD cards
- re-install firmware
- check interior of camera for debris
- clean lens mount with isopropyl alcohol
- reset camera to factory settings
Nothing has worked.
Anyway, just thought I'd put this one down for the records. It doesn't seem to be a very common complaint with the M 240, I could only find a couple of online references to this particular glitch.
Off to Leica NJ we go...
