The Display is OLED and when it is off it is really OFF.
This camera has FIVE (5) Brightness levels for the display. The Brightness is usually set in the TOOL (wrench) menu.
If you are positive the batteries are good, fresh and or fully charged it is MY OPINION that the camera is non functional. The Viewfinder is critical for camera operation. Sorry I am not much help here it seems this camera needs either repair or replacement.
The viewfinder on the Coolpix P60 appears to be a small monitor that links to the main image sensor that is the same sensor that the lens uses. If the purple is on the images when they have been downloaded from the camera to another device, then the sensor is bad. If it is only on the viewfinder and the rear LCD, then the problem is in the connection from the circuit board to the monitoring devices.
Either way, it is probably cheaper to replace the camera than to have a non-warranty sensor or circuit board replacement.
There is a button next to the viewfinder. When you press it, you go between the viewfinder and being able to see what you're shooting through the tiny video screen on the back. That should take care of it. Otherwise, it may need repair. Good luck.
I don't have a solution, but do have the same problem. Mine is cleared by switching the camera off and back on again. Also the problem doesn't appear for long, clearing itself, on some ocassions. The problem stated when I was in a hotter climate, about 35degree celcius.
I bought my camera about 3 months after release, I'd be interested to know the age of yours and if this is a common problem. Have you had your camera fixed?
