no screen with cable release

My Z doesn't show anything on the back screen with a cable release attached. Do you have the same or is it a flaw of my particular camera, plz?

are you using a cheap shutter release with only a two-segment connector? that would make the camera think you've got the button half pressed to focus and black out the screen, assuming it works the same as other pentax cameras.
