Battery status disappearing

Guys, I don't know what's going on but now the battery status on my A7S only shows up for a couple of seconds and then it goes away. I have to click the "display" options for it to show up again...but it only shows up for a couple of seconds and then it disappears again (along with the M symbol - as in manual). Did this ever happen to anyone??

The weird thing is, this only started happening after I've used a Neweer battery grip on the A7S. I was shooting an interview and I could see the battery status, but then the first battery ended and I couldn't see the status anymore. I've tested with single batteries and then with the grip again, but it remains the same.

If I select the display mode where ALL the info is displayed, then the battery status stays there...but there's WAY too much information along with it.

Re: Battery status disappearing

Apparently only the 'all info' display mode keeps the battery status visible (it's automatically hidden after a couple of seconds in the other display modes), i.e. it's a software thing not anything related to your grip.
