operating the K-S2 with a smartphone

When operating the K-S2 with a smartphone using the Image Sync app and in the mode with the camera symbol, I see what the camera sees on my smartphone screen at least this is what the operation manual makes me believe.
Of course this only makes sense in liveview mode.
Unfortunately I only see the app with a black screen.

So is there any way to see the liveview on my smartphone?

Look for the LV icon and tap it if it isn't lit up.
