Hello, @jameshall720. Does the screen go black after some time when the camera is idle? Or is it only when the camera is recording? 

 

Check to see if the Screen Saver is set to any time interval. So as to prevent the screen from going black or blank, the Screen Saver can be disabled. To do this, go to Preferences, then Touch Screen, then Screen Saver.
