Oops might have left the lenscap on.. Is the battery charged? usually the viefinder goes dark when the battery is dead/drained.

No display in viewfinder and LCD

i think you are able too see the video in play back mode. so there is no problem in your LCD.
i think the CCD has got damaged in your CAM. that is why you are not able to view anything in shooting mode.
because CCD is the layer which converts the light falling on it to a electrical signal and shows us as a complete image.

When i put the camera to eye there is a round circle i can see through the rest is black I have tried every nikon lens i own . Nothing changes please help.

I have never used the D2X, but if it is anything like newer cameras, such as the D3, D800, etc., there is an eyepiece cover lever near the viewfinder that allows you to open and close the internal cover. It is used to to prevent stray light from leaking into the camera via the viewfinder when your eye isn't near the viewfinder such as when remotely triggering the camera. If your camera has that feature, it may be closed or partially closed.

Cant see anything through viewfinder

Do you mean the viewfinder or the LCD? To turn on the LCD, press the Start/Stop button at the back (near the viewfinder).

How do I display a grid in the viewfinder when taking pictures?

Are you sure you saw this in your D40x?
I know this is in my camera under personal settings and called raster in viewfinder. But I can't find anything in the D40 or D40x manual.

There is two ways to view your "taking picture" with the LCD and with the viewfinder, you can shut the LCD off to save battery power and use the viewfinder and that is what I think has happened. a touch of the DISP button and it will switch from the LCD to the viewfinder. here is a diagram

With you saying the LCD is working for functions but not for taking pictures this is what I suspect is the problem.

Viewfinder is blank, but the camera works normally.

Iris or Aperture not working its all time off so that you can not see through camera.You need to change Iris cable.

When I turn on my camera the LCD screen is balck and I cant see anything thruough the lens. It does take pics because when I upload the disck Ic an see the new pics

Double check if the viewfinder is operable (not the LDC but the little thing you look through with one eye above it). Try pressing the display button to flip through the different modes as you're looking through the viewfinder. If the viewfinder does work (and the LCD screen doesn't come on as you're scrolling through the modes) then it is most likely dead (broken). If the viewfinder works, you're can still use the camera otherwise it's probably time to get a new one.

Not seeing anything through the viewfinder when switched on

Most cameras and video recorders now display picture either through the viewfinder or the LCD screen.
Your camera model allows the same. Although if you turn the lcd screen towards the subject (screen faces the same direction as the lens) then the viewfinder switches on.
