Live View Failure

Has anyone had any trouble with their Live View mode?
I noticed this morning when i try to flick across to live view nothing happens.
Took off the lens and noticed the small lever at left of body moves the full range but the mirror does not move. Annoying even though i don't use it too often i know it will be a major production sending back to the Aus distributor. No problem with any other function.
I was hoping there may be a minor fix, (disloged spring etc) that someone may have knowledge of.

It sounds (if you can read "sounds") like your camera is set on "optical preview". Go in the custom set up menu to line 30 and see where it is. I'm pretty sure you are set on "2 Optical Preview". To use live view, you have to set it on "1 Live View". That should solve your problem.

I think that's a bit extreme but whatever floats your boat
