Ok, all you need to do is:

1.Hold the camera normally like you would take a picture.

2.Turn it on and review a picture.

3. While looking at a picture, take your index (pointer) finger and rotate the front "wheel" right under the shutter release button. This switches the viewing mode, and should solve your problem.

I have a Nikon D80 camera. I somehow, unintentionally turned on the preview screen that shows all of the info. I don't want any print on my screen, no highlight, no RGB, nothing but picture.


If you were seeing a preview on the LCD monitor on the back of the camera, then there was something seriously wrong with the camera. Nikon did not introduce the LiveView feature until later models.
If you're asking about review instead of preview and seeing graphs or lots of data, press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through different views of your pictures until you get to one you like.

Have a d8o take a picture does not show on back screen


If you wish to manually view all the photos you've taken, press the play button, it is located near the screen on the back with a triangle logo.

If you wish to automatically view photos after they've been taken, press the menu button, go to the sub menu with the pencil icon, and turn "Image review" to on.

If you wish to view the images on the back screen as you take them, this is not possible with the D80. You have to use the viewfinder.

I just got my new Nikon D80 but cannot get the LCD screen to light up. Where do I find the setting or the LCD screen to have it on while shooting pictures?


The D80 does not use the LCD screen to take images. The screen is only used to review images and use the menu system to check or change camera settings. When shooting, you need to use the viewfinder above the screen.

Lcd screen: lighter images flash from normal to


You are probably viewing the preview screen in "Highlight" mode. To fix this, use the dial button at the back of the D80 and click up (or down) to see another depiction of the preview screen. It will show you different options until you can see the normal picture without the flashing highlights. Hope this helps.

Text is showing up when i review my picture


After you take a picture and while you are viewing the image press the UP or DOWN on the directional button... you will see that you can scroll thru several screens of image info. These are very helpful when doing pro shots and making sure the settings you have are proper for the effect you want. Scroll to the screen with just the date and time stamp at the bottom. If any of the other screens pop up in the future you know that you can just scroll thru again with the up or down arrows.

This camera has soooo much info that it's hard to remember everything. I had a D50 before this one and I'm still learning...even after a year of ownership.

LCD on - view image prior to taking photo


The feature you are referring to is called "Live View mode".

This is NOT available on the Nikon D80, and was only introduced on the D90, which is available now.

Live View mode allows you to use the LCD screen as your view finder instead of using the eyepiece, but unfortunately, this feature is not available in your model.

Monitor does not stay on


The LCD monitor screen at the back of the camera does not display a live picture like many point-n-shoot digitals. It only displays after the pic is taken. Use the LCD on the top cover to check your settings. Please leave feedback if this helps.

Monitor


Hey sbrittannia,
This camera does not have what is called live preview where you can see what you're shooting and compose the image on the LCD screen. What it does have is image review which should display the image just taken on the LCD screen for about 2 seconds. If your camera is not doing this it means image review has been turned off. You can turn image review on or off under custom setting 6 which is described on page 88 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!

Nikon d80 LCD screen


Hello cherdh,

To disable those blinking spots, just press the up or down cursor keys at the back of the camera while in playback mode. You will get three different views. One shows the EXIF data (Image data) as an over lay on your photograph. Press the button again to go to histogram mode, with graphs. Press it again to go to a mode where some image data is on the bottom of the display with no blinkies on the image.

Those blinking black spots are called highlights in a photograph. They indicate the areas where your photograph is over-exposed, i.e. where there is too much light and the colours are washed out. It can be a good tool to get a good exposure. Keep clicking with different settings till you get an exposure without those blinking spots.

I hope this helps.
