If you can see the taken image in the monitor- fully lit- then the monitor is not faulty.
However you cannot get Menu's is that right?
Ths then would be a problem for the manufacturers support web site.
If the camera is no longer in Warranty my guess is that it would be cheaper or nearly so simply to replace it than a repair

My LCD monitor won't light up to take a picture but it does when I review those I have taken thru the viewfinder


Most screens can be turned off for low battery usage. Check battery with tester or have it tested or replace battery and check menu and see if review screen is turned off. Rich

I have a d80.problem: lcd will not show anything. lcd will show previous taken pictures


Which is it? The LCD will not show anything, or it will show previously taken pictures? Does it show menus when you press the MENU button?
The D80's LCD will not show pictures before you take them. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing pictures already taken. You must use the viewfinder for composing your pictures. The LiveView capability which lets you use the LCD for composing is a recent development in DSLRs. Nikon introduced it to their product line with the D3 and D300, released years after the D80.

How can i used the LCD monitor during taking pictures? as of present i am only using the viewfinder? pls help me set my cam...


The D80 does not have the LiveView feature to allow using the LCD monitor for taking the picture. Nikon introduced this feature with the D3 and D300, which came out well after the D80. You have to use the viewfinder.

Sorry if this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's just the way this camera works.

When the camera is turned on view window is not lit up viewing is dark and grey hard to focus but still takes a good picture?


Do you mean the viewfinder or the lcd-screen?
The Nikon D80 does not have a 'live-view' mode to watch the picture you're about to take on the LCD-screen. It's a semi-professional camera not to be used like a standard 'point-and-shoot' digital camera.
If it is the viewfinder that's out of focus, try adjusting the dial to the right of the viewfinder. It might also be that your internal mirror doesn't get powered (in this case you're unable to see the focus areas). In the last case you will have to get the camera serviced by Nikon.

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 Monitor


You are plainly unaware of the potentials and hang ups of owning a SLR camera
A SLR camera such as this does not offer a monitor preview like most other cameras.
This is because the viewfinder[via a mirror] uses the lens to view the scene.

There are some Olympus models that allow it via an electronic trick and many other makes that appear to be SLR are in fact not and utilize a small LCD screen in the eyepiece.
But a true SLR cannot do this.

Monitor does not show images in focus


Impossible. The D80 is an SLR which means there is a real shutter curtain blocking the imaging array, essentially 'blindfolding' the array.It cannot see the image until the shutter is opened. Nikon just introduced a new SLR that can do live view mode, if you want to spend a couple of grand.

The Monitor on my Nikon D80 does not show any image when I try to take a picture - The viewfinder is ok and the camera takes a picture ok and displays it for about 4 seconds on the monitor after taking it....


You can switch it off so as not to show the picture after you take one.

You cannot use the monitor to show images as you're taking them. The D80 does not have a Live View capability.

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.
