LCD screen still turns off with Headphone Mon ON (T3i)

Issue #2712 new

I originally tried posting this in General Q&A on ML forums but it has been 5 days and still hasn't even been approved from a moderator to show on the forum so I assume that's a way of telling me it was in the wrong section?... Anyway, I have tried searching through FAQ, duplicate questions, and for hours on google with no luck at solving my issue. The only thing close to my question are posts from years ago saying ML doesn't work with T3i but there are builds for it now obviously. I am actually surprised I haven't been able to find a single post of someone with the same issue I'm currently experiencing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am using a Canon T3i Rebel and have installed ML to be able to listen to the audio through a pair of headphone (earbuds) when recording video. I am using the mini usb to red/white cable that came with my camera and the Headphone Mon option is turned ON but when I plug in the cable, the camera's display turns off immediately. When I take out the cable and the display comes back on, I see a message on the screen saying "headphones disconnected". So it looks like it should be working but the display keeps turning off and I can't figure out why.

I downloaded the ML build for 600D/Rebel T3i and have tried with 2 different 64gb sd cards and get the same problem with both cards.

Any idea why the display is turning off when it shouldn't? Is there something I'm missing? Thanks so very much for any help anyone can provide.

    Really no one has had this same issue? Here's a link to a video which I uploaded explaining the issue if it helps... Really frustrated that I can't figure this out. If anyone has any insight I will love you forever
