If you have beena ble to use the monitor for preview, something was wrong with your camera since Nikon never designed it to do that.

The D40 does not have a Live View capability.

Sounds like you're looking for a feature called "live view". I don't believe the D40 has that feature.

If you were able to use the LCD monitor as a viewfinder on the D40, then there was something wrong with your camera.

The D40 does not have a Live View capability.

Use LCD instead of view finder in Nikon D40


Can't be done. Digital SLR cameras only view through the eyepiece, unless they have a "live view" function, which the D40 does not. The LCD is therefore for viewing an image after it is shot, and setting your menu options.

While viewing the picture press the up arrow on the arrow pad. It will scroll through the index (the one you are stuck on), highlight, histogram and then back to normal view.

The camera has a mirror lock up feature for cleaning the CCD sensor. You may have engaged it. Check your manual about this function
