Live View won't work on D5600 LCD

Question

Getting the message "Cannot start Live View at current settings or under current conditions" when I engage the Live View knob next to the mode wheel on the top right of the D5600.

Tried with BYN running by itself and via SkyX.  No difference.  Also tried with and without lense cap on.

Didn't have this problem a few months ago before I reconfigured my setup (no change in BYN interface).

Like to use Live View LCD for quick focus.  My desktop is remote so getting the focus close at the scope is very helpful.

The Nikon documentation is dense.  Any suggestions?

Thanks

It seems like a setting in the camera is preventing LiveView from working with BYN. Does LiveView work when the camera is not connected to the PC? In my Canon, there is a LiveView shooting item in the camera's menu that must be enabled. Perhaps your camera has something similar.

Monkeyed around some more and basically when the Nikon senses a "hot" USB connection at the camera it disables Live View, even if BYK is not "Connected" to the camera.  So the workaround is just to unplug the USB, obtain good focus using Live View, and then reconnect the USB prior to continuing the workflow.  I'll continue to research with Nikon to see if there's a way to disable the disabler and will report back if I find a way.  Thanks for the suggestions.

That does not seem like normal behavior... and this would honestly be the only camera model that would to this.  There must be something else at play here.

Try a factory reset on your camera and see if this makes a difference.
