5D screen goes black when plugging the microphone

5d users
Does this happen to you guys?

When I plug my rode videomic , the LCD goes black, then when I take it out, it goes back ok.

Id appreciate if anyone had solved the same issue

Are you sure you are not plugging the mic in the a v out.

They both take 1/8" jacks.

I don't mean to insult you, it just seems likely.

That's probably it...i did that once and it freaked me out twice - once when I saw the black screen and then a second time when I realized just what I had done.
