Page 20 of your user manual manual explains about each time the INFO button is pressed while in shooting mode. The camera is not a live view LCD screen so after it shows you normal information and then detailed information if you press INFO button again the camera screen will shut itself off. To turn the screen on again you need to press INFO again. This is normal camera behavior.

Where's the shooting information of d80 in the larger screen?


The Shooting Information screen was introduced with the D40. The older D80 does not have it. Instead it shows almost all of the information in the control panel and/or viewfinder, though you have to delve into the menus for some of it.

Most of the settings you could change via the Shooting Info screen on the D40, you can change by pressing the appropriate button and turning one of the command dials.

The D40 was intended as an introductory dSLR, doing more handholding for new photographers, putting things into visual, menu-driven screens. The D80 was intended as a midlevel camera, allowing faster operation using more buttons. It does less handholding, but once you learn where the controls are, it actually is faster to use. (Okay, that was based on my personal experience, since I've used both.)

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help:

I just bought a d60 and the monitor does not display anything other than a blank screen or the shooting info--never the monitor view. what switch am have I clcked or missed?


I assume it will also display the menu when you press the menu button?

The D60 does not have a Live View capability. You have to use the viewfinder just as SLR uses have been doing for half a century.

Have you tried pressing the 'INFO' button? This little button will toggle between camera info on display/no info on display (when the display isn't in use to display pictures).

I have an e500. The viewer will not come on for taking pics.


Unfortunately with the EVOLT E-500 it does not have the capability for a live view LCD screen. You must shoot images using the viewfinder only. The newer Olympus SLR cameras now have both viewfinder and live view LCD.

Shutter does not work.


It's not a shutter, but aperture unit is jammed.
Try these: Move lens all the way out and while pressing release button, gently tap on the tip of the lens using something soft/havy like small rubber hammer or piece of rubber.

Powershot pro1 viewfinder show blank white


Hi
When the LCD screen is open the viewfinder will switch of and when it is closed the viewfinder will switch on. You can switch between the two by pressing Monitor select button to the left of the Eyepiece (Viewfinder). as you look at the back of the camera.

Hope this helps.
