K20D live view does not work

I actually do not care for live view. That is why I never tried it all these days. Yesterday I wanted to try taking a shot at a weird angle that made it difficult for me to look thru the viewfiender and switched the dial to liveview - shocked to see that it does not work. I hear a sound but the mirror does not seem to lock up. The shutter speed and aperture numbers disappear in the viewfinder whenever I turn it to liveview and I hear a sound but that is it. Anyone else had a similar issue? Am I doing something wrong? Any suggestions would be helpful.

In the menu "Preview Method", is it set to do Live View (rather than, e.g., DoF preview in the view finder)?

Thank you so much Rawhead! It works fine after I reset custom setting to default.
