    2019.7 - Immediate Help Needed! Video suddenly not showing in Record monitor?

    I must have enabled something by some unknown keyboard shortcut but cannot figure out what it is when looking through the menus.

     

    I have video in the source monitor but when playing the timeline I only hear audio, I have black on the record monitor. I've obviously triggered something because in a different project the record monitor is working normally.

     

    What have I accidentally enabled here?

     

    Many thanks

    Hello,

    Do you have dual monitors? I was reading about having dual monitors can cause black screens? Due to the placement of the monitors. Go to top left, Apple logo.  system preferences and try changing the display layout to another side?

    Hope that helps?

    Leo

    Well this is embarassing, just goes to show that in a moment of panic (and baby brain from waking up at 5am for the newborn for the last 3 days) you can forget the most basic priniciples.

    I accidentally triggered my track monitor to off Embarrassed

    We all make mistakes.  Thanks for sharing.  We all learn from each other.  Your reputation remains intact.

    Must think of something clever to go here...
