    Default E-M5 users, need help quickly (can't stop auto-scrolling in Live Control view)

    All of a sudden in movie mode (selected via the mode dial on the left), when I hit the OK button to go into Live Control view, the cursor is autoscrolling down through the column of functions at the right of the LCD. Does anyone know why this is happening and how to stop it? I don't recall doing anything that would make it happen.

    Thanks

    Yes, that's how it usually moves, and I wondered about that. Unfortunately I'm trying to troubleshoot over the phone with the person who borrowed the camera to shoot some video. Thanks for the idea.

    Would a full 'reset' have any result?

    Well I took a look at the camera last night (the borrower had returned it to my wife, and could not replicate the wierd behavior the borrower was seeing, so who knows what was going on. Thanks for all the replies, though!!
