SOURCE: I think my flash is too bright?

first check exposure compensastion. make sure its zero. After that set flash to i-TTL. Note that you must have some distance from the subject so that the light will have space to spread. D40 with kit lens cant do macro shot. Eventhough its on automatic mode, to near with subject can make the picture to bright.

Second, check your ISO. when condition is bright, use ISO 200 and lower. Its advised not to use fully auto mode, use P instead. P mode is also automatic mode with some fixed value like the ISO and white balance while automode, everything is automatic. this can make your camera confused with your needs.In P mode, the camera will adjust the shutter and aperture for you. Or try shot with A or S.

third. Use the right metering. Metering function is to supply information to the body on how to adjust the value. Its advised to point and half press shutter at the well balanced light part of the scene so that the picture will not over or underexposed. Use the AE-AL lock function to lock the setting. Try each metering.

bear in mind that internal flash fire direct flash to subject not same ad external lighting that you can bounce to the ceiling. Normally internal flash only use to fill-in the scene, which main lighting is supply from external flash.

Hope this help you.

The Nikon D60 does not have "live view" capability, so you'll need to use the viewfinder to frame you shots. If you need "live view" capability, consider purchasing the D80 or D90 instead with offer the feature...

My flash on mt d60 camera is way to bright

Could have different causes. If you are using an Nikon flash, you should put it on TTL and your camera on automatic to check everything is working correct. Then you can change to all other modes and the camera should also tell the flash when to stop.
If you are using an other brand, or a wireless trigger, you have to adjust the camera settings yourself. Not knowing what flash you are using, and not knowing what settings you have dialed in on your D60, this is the first thing I can think of.
Perhaps if you keep having trouble, you give me some more details and I hope to be of any help then. Just a quick question. How is the light on the pictures when you shoot normal? (Without flash)

I have a Nikon D60 camera. Switched it on today and there is no image in the LED display when I try to take a picture, the screen is black.

That's normal for the D60. It works the same way SLRs have worked for half a century: you view and compose through the optical viewfinder, then snap the picture. The D60 lacks the Live View feature of more recent dSLRs; the LCD (not LED) display on the back is for menus, settings, and reviewing pictures after you've taken them. It is not for composing and framing your pictures.

Photos are dark despite settings saying they're ok

It is possible that the EV control has been switched on. This will look like this +/- and is usally set to 0. Try that perhaps.
I am uncertain what you mean by MANUAL since if it is true manual control of exposure the whole point is that you can select the level of brightness you want.
Best of luck

Nikon D60 is suddenly taking very dark pictures

I have had "dark pictures" from each of my Nikon DSLR (D70, D80, D200, D300) cameras usually when taking pictures from a tripod and/or the self timer. Situations where you take your eye away from the viewfinder which allows stray light to enter thru the viewfinder and throw the auto exposure way off. Not sure if this is what is happening to you.
