LCD Monitor


You are plainly unaware of the potentials and hang ups of owning a SLR camera
A SLR camera such as this does not offer a monitor preview like most other cameras.
This is because the viewfinder[via a mirror] uses the lens to view the scene.

There are some Olympus models that allow it via an electronic trick and many other makes that appear to be SLR are in fact not and utilize a small LCD screen in the eyepiece.
But a true SLR cannot do this.

D80 nikon LCD Monitor


If you can see the taken image in the monitor- fully lit- then the monitor is not faulty.
However you cannot get Menu's is that right?
Ths then would be a problem for the manufacturers support web site.
If the camera is no longer in Warranty my guess is that it would be cheaper or nearly so simply to replace it than a repair

Lcd monitor cracked


Hi

You can probably find an LCD or a defective camera with a good LCD online for fairly cheap. Don't bother trying to buy the LCD new from a local repair shop or store, if anybody has it they will want far too much money for it.

I can list it in our store, though its a special order item and we don't have any in stock at this time. We are an AFFORDABLE digital camera repair business, (Google: Darntoothysam) I can list your LCD for about $45.

If we can help please let me know. Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Monitor does not stay on


The LCD monitor screen at the back of the camera does not display a live picture like many point-n-shoot digitals. It only displays after the pic is taken. Use the LCD on the top cover to check your settings. Please leave feedback if this helps.

Dark monitor


Since the D40X is an SLR, (single lens reflex), it is not possible to use the LCD monitor to frame your pictures before they are taken.

To view what your images look like after you have taken them, you need to use the 'monitor/play' button marked with a rectangular box

This sounds like a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
