Re: using the camera screen (LCD) as a viewfinder
To use the LCD as a viewfinder:
Turn the Mode dial to any Still mode.
Press the OK button to turn on the camera screen.
Frame your subject in the LCD.
Press the Shutter button to take a picture.
NOTE: Using the camera screen as a viewfinder significantly reduces battery power. Use it sparingly.

Dec 8, 2015 - There is no picture or a black screen appears in the viewfinder or LCDwhen attempting to ... Look to see if an image can be seen in the viewfinder or LCD. IMPORTANT: Some camcorders have both a viewfinder and LCD.
Hello, I don't have the manual for your Z612 in front of me at the moment but does this model not have a small button marked EVP/LCD near the LCD screen ? If you press the button it should switch from the LCD screen to the viewfinder.
It's probably coming on but the button has been pushed to activate the viewfinder so all information gose there and the LCD screen remains black OR because this camera has an interesting feature just under the viewfinder that scenes the photographer looking into the viewfinder automatically shuts off the rear LCD screen. If this sensor is blacked then the LCD screen will not come on.
you need to reset the camera some models have a small reset buton where the batter goes into. if not the lcd screen shorted out (happened to my older olympus) and had ssame issue as yours sorry for the bad news
Click the "disp" button. The display of the camera has been turned off in the LCD screen but you can still use the viewfinder, this functionality is just for those who prefer to use the viewfinder instead of the LCD screen.
Most cameras and video recorders now display picture either through the viewfinder or the LCD screen.
Your camera model allows the same. Although if you turn the lcd screen towards the subject (screen faces the same direction as the lens) then the viewfinder switches on.
Hi When the LCD screen is open the viewfinder will switch of and when it is closed the viewfinder will switch on. You can switch between the two by pressing Monitor select button to the left of the Eyepiece (Viewfinder). as you look at the back of the camera.
I would suggest looking through the viewfinder. most cameras have a button on the back near the lcd screen that toggles the viewfinder or the lcd. If you give me the make and model of your camera i can tell you exactly where it is.
LCD = Lousy Camera Device? Get used to using the optical viewfinder. The LCD is great for reviewing images after you've taken them, but it leaves a lot to be desired as a viewfinder. Keeping your camera steady is no small feat at the best of times, but being forced to hold the camera away from your body to view an image through the LCD adds a new level of instability to the picture-taking process.
You're not alone. It's an epidemic. With some people it lasted only about 8 flips between LCD and viewfinder. It's especialy a problem with the Z series.
If you still can, send it for repair on warranty, otherwise you'll either have to live with it or find a place that can handle this repair.
