Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

Shooting Information Display Screen

Somehow this screen appeared and now I can't get rid of it. It fades away but I can't get a picture of what I shoot on the screen. The book said it goes away when info button is pressed again or when a picture is taken but mine does not. The D40 was bought on the 26th of December, 2008.
Thanks for any help.

When I turn my Nikon D40 on, the shooting information display appears. I can't take a picture or get the screen to go away.


Three easy ways to return to the standard program combination are to:

1.) flip to a different mode and back to P, or

2.) turn the D40 off and back on, or

3.) spin the rear dial back to its original position.

The *P symbol goes away when you've returned to the standard combinations.

The standard combinations are f/4 at 1/60, f/5.6 @ 1/125, f/8 @ 1/250, f/11 @ 1/500, etc.

A shifted set might use f/4 @ 1/1,000, f/8 @ 1/500 or might use f/4 @ 1/2, f/5.6 @ 1 sec, etc. Don't worry, just flick the rear dial until you get the combination you prefer.

I don't know how to fix your particular problem with your software, but I always recommend using Google's Picasa for maintaining your photos on your computer. It's free and does some basic editing as well.

Hope this helps! Happy Shooting!

Rear lcd screen black in shooting mode but works fine in playback


Solved the problem by going to the Canon product support site. It seems that there is no problem at all. The way the camera is designed is the problem. To be able to use the rear display lcd as a view finder, the camera needs to be able to lift the mirror to allow the sensors to pick up the image and display it on the screen. The 20D does not have this abilitiy. Apparently some later models do allow you to raise the mirror. It was this feature on those models that led me to believe that the 20D should do this too.

Nikon D60 and a box on the screen


i am assuming that you are not talking about the "shooting info display on page 9 of the manual.
if it is the Photo info (sounds most likely) you can change that display by scrolling you can change your display by using the multi selector. From that screen i believe you hit the left tab by the okay key twice. Play around. when you get the display you want. just leave it alone and they will all display that way. That happened to me during a soccer game.. very frustrating.. see no way to lock it.

Black screen for Shooting Canon S3 IS


I have a similar problem with my Canon S3 IS. Dark/black LCD in Shooting mode. However, I can view my existing photos in Display mode. I was about to spend money to get a Panasonic TZ5. Somehow I bumped into a solution post for S2 IS. Here is the link:

I tried their solutions twice and it WORKS. My S3 is working fine now.

Camera settings appear on viewfinder screen


Ok I just posted that I had the same problem and I just figured it out by trial and error. What I did was
press the playback button.
press OK
it will take you to the edit picture menu and the first choice is D-lighting. It should be highlighted Yellow. press Ok and then the screen will come up with 2 of your picture with different lighting. choose which ever one you want then press OK. The image will save and then the camera info should go away. I have NO idea why this worked but it did and I hope this works for you!!

Shooting mode shows nothing.


Hello,

I just had this issue with my camera (my 15 year old son solved it for me ;-) ).

The viewfinder was active in "record" mode and the LCD was "active" because you could see a little back light but no image. The "playback" mode would let me review pictures in the LCD though so I know it is capable of showing information.

If you push the display key/button a couple of times you can see the picture move from the viewfinder to the LCD and have just a picture and or a picture and information.

So try setting the camera to "record" mode (lens comes out) and then push the "display button" which is on the back of the camera just to the right of the LCD on the lower right side several times and see if the LCD starts to work.

It could be that somehow the display button was pushed by mistake.

With the camera in Playback mode (reviewing pictures you have already taken), press the DISP button until the LCD shows what you want -- no information, basic information, or full shooting information.
