The D40x works as SLRs have worked for half a century. You have to compose the picture through the viewfinder. The LCD screen is for menus, settings, and reviewing pictures after they've been taken. The LiveView capability allowing you to compose on the screen is a relatively new development, which Nikon introduced into their cameras with the D3 and D300, introduced years after the D40x.
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way the D40x works.
Hello - from what you said - it sounds more like a sensor problem in the camera.
If the screen looks OK while sizing up a picture , then 'click' Image is stored on sensor which is read as one LARGE matrix of dots and stored into memory.
If the white lines start at this point - ie. viewing the picture while in camera and then after download.
Then, the problem started at the sensor.
I just did a (www.goggle.co.uk) and did a search for problems - and NONE apart from Wi-Fi connections to Windows7 -- all reviews were great.
I would connect Nikon to see what they recommend . -- Ray
Sadly, most digital cameras don't have a reset button like it older more reliable elders. But, most digital cameras have a "menu" button or a "review" button. If either of these are still working and can be seen on the display screen then your problem lies within the lense or digital shutter. If you can't see anything at all, even the "Menu" or "review" your problem is much more extensive. If so, you can NOT fix this yourself without ruining it more.
I can say that most of the camera shops can refurbish it for you for a lower price. Or you can purchase and already refurbished camera for about half have you paid for the new one.
Hope I helped.
