LCD preview and info not visible when cable release attached

I have noticed that when my CS-205 cable release is attached the LCD preview and info screens are unavailable. Unplug the cable and they work again. This is a pain when trying to preview whilst using a cable release.

Does anyone have the same problem

Sounds like the remote is stuck in half-press mode, does the cable and the plug look ok?.

You are a genius!

It is sticking just tried it out and tapped on the button after exposing and it is working properly. Still a bit sticky though - will have to work on it.

Many thanks.
