Nikon Coolpix 8800 - viewing photo when using viewfinder
Can you tell me how to get my photos to display automatically on the LCD screen once I have taken the photo using the viewfinder. I am doing a photography course and it is very difficult to figure out if I have lighting etc correct without automatically viewing the photo. I don't want to have to keep pressing buttons etc if its at all possible.

Hi there, thanks for coming to FixYa. My name is Rob and I can help you with that.
Take a look at the back of your camera. Just above the display screen, you can see a button that has something that looks like this |O| The button has a horizontal oval inbetween two vertical lines. Press that button when the camera is on and you will see what the camera sees in the monitor. If you press it again, it will revert back to the electronic viewfinder. If it is set to monitor, then it will always show on the monitor until you hit the button to change it.
That will solve your problem. I would appreciate a fixya rating. If you have anymore questions, or need more help, let me know in a comment.

is it only the view finder or does it appear on the photo as well because if it the view finder then it is the screen and if it is on the photo as well then its most likely the lense and once you have deterined this then you can know if it is just dirty or if the screen needs replacing
Having a "System Error" message display on the camera's LCD display generally indicates a problem where the camera will need to come to Nikon for repair. A System Error is a general error which can be caused by many things: lens problem, CF Card problem, general camera failure, etc. Before sending the camera in, check these:
Use the memory card that originally came with the camera (or a Nikon approved card) [/*]
The D40 works the same way SLRs have worked for the past half century. Only recently have dSLRs acquired a "Live-View" capability, where you see the image on the LCD monitor instead of through the viewfinder.
I realize this probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.
in Vista Nikon Picture Perfect is not a requirement Any photo software will do. I remove my chip and insert it into my printer to upload photos manually as though it were a hard-drive i used to use the firewire and leave the chip in my Nikon d70s and let windows or the photo software of your choice offer to upload the photos for me. Try Picasa or ACDSee Photo Manager and ACDSee Pro peer to peer sites or torrents share these with cracks/serials for you to explore Picasa is free online
You probably do not have "liveview" on. If its in a powersaving mode liveview will not be on. Liveview is where you see the creen to use it as a viewfinder and also to view your photos. Somewhere in your settings or power settins, viewing you will find liveview or a similar meaning name and be able to set it to ON.
