Did this happen all of a sudden, or has it always been like this?

In any case, there's no setting to disable the viewfinder LCD, so if it's not illuminating you should get the camera serviced.

oh. it always. I cannot see the shutter speed, the exposure, the light meter, the entire row of information that appears in green .... at the bottom of the viewfinder display. The rest of the viewfinder functions are working ok - i.e. the grid lines can be turned on or off, the autofocus selector points show up, things glow in red when the shutter is depressed halfway, etc.
and The info is only missing from the viewfinder. On the main large LCD display as well.

So you have a K-1 and not a K-5?

Still sounds like the camera needs servicing.

I am confused, gridlines on the k-5 viewfinder are fixed, you can't turn them on and off. Did that refer to Live view?
