MZ-M LCD won't turn off

Bit of a noob question, but here we go :

I have been given a brand new MZ-M, so I loaded it with new batteries and put some film in it.

But the funny thing is the LCD doesn't turn off when I turn off the camera.

It displays the Film Loaded icon and the exposure number.

Is that usual ?

Yes, it is- the LCD barely uses any power, and it stays on so that you don't accidentally take the film out.
