    Do you mean before you take the shot or afterwards? If you mean before you take the shot or while you are taking it, please be aware that the D40 is not designed to view the shot under those conditions. However, you should be able to view the shot after you have taken it.

If you are talking about viewing the shot you just took, press the "info" button on the top of the camera (next to the shutter button), that will turn the LCD on and off.

Picture is not showing on screen until after I take the picture


The D40 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, showing the view only through the viewfinder. The LCD is for menus, setup, and reviewing pictures you've already taken. The LiveView capability that allows you to use the LCD for composing your pictures is a relatively new feature. Nikon introduced it into their cameras with the D3 and D300, released well after the D40.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way this camera works.

No display on the LCD viewfinder when taking pictures. It only works to review pictures/videos.


There's nothing wrong with your camera. The D40 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, using a mirror to project the image through the viewfinder. The live view feature is a relatively recent development among dSLRs, previously available only on point&shoot cameras.

The D40 works the same way SLRs have worked for the past half century. Only recently have dSLRs acquired a "Live-View" capability, where you see the image on the LCD monitor instead of through the viewfinder.

I realize this probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

My d40 has a image in viewfinder, will not take picture.


What lens are you using with the D40? Is it an AF-S lens? And is the Mirror Lockup on? Chech the Custom Settings menu. If mirror lockup is on, turn it off.

My d40 has a image in viewfinder, will not take picture


It sounds to me that you are using an incompatible lens or a broken one. Does this happen with the lens that came with the camera?

Nikon D40 will not focus


on the right side of the view finder there is a little bar. Make sure it is all the way down. If it is in the up position then it will make the viewfinder, shouldn't make the images blurry though. Also make sure it is in AF not MF (auto focus and manual focus).

LCD display issues


According to Nikon, that was not possible. The D40 doesn't have 'Liveview' like the smaller compact cameras. You would always have to use the viewfinder for taking pictures. Even in the TV ads, everyone used the viewfinder as they took turns using the camera.

Nikon D40 will not flash


The lightning bolt icon in viewfinder blinks when flash is not ready, this can happen if flash doesnt pop up all the way, or if flash strobe tube is bad.

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

Nikon D40 LCD screen.


Since the camera is an SLR, (single lens reflex), the CCD image sensor is behind the shutter until you take a picture. Sorry, but you cannot use the LCD to take pictures.
