    Live View cannot be activated

    Hello guys, I'm new to this forum! Thanks for having me.

    So, I'm currently trying to prepare to record some videos, but there's a problem.
    Live view isn't working. It says Live View cannot be turned on under the current settings or conditions. (similar to that)
    I don't know what I did, but Live View is just not working.
    Can someone help me?

    First off, welcome to the forum. We need to know what setting you have on the camera now.

    This may be a crazy question, but do you have one of those Wireless Mobile Adapters plugged in? Or, if you have Wi-Fi enabled, if you are connected to the mobile app, live view won't work.

    Which camera is it - maybe we should start with that.

    I think it is probably a D5200 because that is the sub-forum he posted in.

    You are right in asking about the WiFi, etc. As has been stated, we need more info to see what is going on.

    They posted in the D5200 section so we can assume it is a D5200.

    Welcome aboard Nino. Enjoy the ride.
    We look forward to seeing more posts and samples of your work.

    Digicamcontrol 2 is intended to use a PC to control your camera, not live view. So you need to use one or the other.
