The Nikon D90 Live Monitor Screen at the back is not working correctly, or rather it is showing a rainbow of different colours instead of showing previous shots or the MENU when pressing the MENU Button. Suspect it may be due to the camera body being "knocked" around - alothough it has not been dropped or suffered any "hits".

Re: Live Monitor is not working
You guessed it right. I also think there can be a firmware(software) failure. You can try a Factory reset option of your camera. If that doesn't work, I don't think you should do any more experiments since its a very delicate and sensitive and EXPENSIVE instrument. Please take it to the qualified technician in that case.

The manual only gives the obvious things. Is your battery fully charged. You can select the time the monitor stays on c2. You even can select Monitor out c4. Check you did not select one of those. The last thing you could try if nothing of the above works, is remove the battery and after a few seconds put it in again. Last option, I'm sorry, but you should visit the dealer or Nikon suport center if nothing of this helps.
Press the [Lv] button on the back of the camera above the circular cursor pad to activate the LiveView. For more details, refer to the "Framing Pictures in the Monitor (Live View)" section of the manual (page 43 in my copy).
The Nikon D90 is a 12.3 megapixel digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) camera that offers live view capability and automatic correction of lateral chromatic aberration.
It is known as the first DSLR to feature HD 720p video recording with mono sound at 24 frames per second. It replaces the Nikon D80 and positions itself between the company's entry-level and professional DSLR models.
We have here the price (in Philippine peso) of Nikon D90 digital camera.
Nikon D90 Digital Camera Price (body only) in the Philippines: Around Php 36,000 - Php 37,000. Nikon D90 Digital Camera Price (with Nikkor AF-S DX 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR lens) in the Philippines: Around Php 52,000 - Php 53,000
Apparently there was something seriously wrong with your camera, which has now fixed itself. Nikon didn't put the LiveView feature into the their DSLRs until the D3 and the D300, which were released after the D80. The more recent D90 has this feature, but not the D80.
I realize these aren't the answers you wanted to see, but the D40 does not have any live view capability, nor does it shoot video. Nikon intended the D40 as an entry-level dSLR, with a minimal feature set. In fact, they didn't introduce the video until the D90, introduced more than two years after the D40. The least-expensive Nikon dSLR with both of these capabilities is the D5000.
