Question about Samsung Cameras
Problem resolved. My own stupid operating fault. It appears that, in movie mode, you don't just press the shutter button to start a shot, you have to hold it down for a moment. Not made clear in user manual, but I should have twigged earlier.
Thanks for your contact/help.

Had the same problem with my SD10. The switch in the AV port sometimes gets dirty or corroded, and tricks the camera into thinking that an AV plug is inserted. This will turn off the screen.
To fix it, repeatedly insert and remove an AV cable into the port several times. This may help break off any corrosion or dirt that may be holding this switch open.
