    Exactly the same happened to my camera today. LCD works inside perfectly, but flickers on MOST settings outside.
    It's not happened before? Camera 6mths old.................?
    I changed the setting, so that the sensor was disabled and LCD stays on permanently...its solved the problem!!......Wonder why its started though?
    Any suggestions?

The problem is the sensor thats right below the viewfinder. The sensor is made to turn the lcd off when you put your eye up to it . The sunlight is activating the sensor try shading it and it will be fine.

Nikon digital SLR LCD viewfinder


No. The D60's LCD is used for menus, shooting settings, and reviewing pictures after you take them. You have to use the viewfinder to compose your pictures. Nikon introduced the LiveView capability into their DSLRs with the D3 and the D300, introduced after the D60.

Can't viewb the LCD screen when shooting a picture! it's just black


The D60 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, showing the image in the viewfinder until you press the shutter. The LiveView feature which shows the image on the LCD screen is a rather recent development on DSLRs, unlike on point&shoot cameras. The D60 does not have this capability, which Nikon introduced with the D3 and D300.

Sorry if this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

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.

New Nikon D60 switching itself off...


Go into the menu and scroll to "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. If that doesn't work, you need to take the new Nikon back.

Lens will not auto focus with flash up


Not sure of you camera model, but the flash will fire momentarily when you try to focus indoors as there is not enough light for the auto focus to work. This is so the camera can determine a distance from the subject to the camera. This is called focus assist (ref to your manual). It will work outdoors as there is enough light and contrast for the focus to work.

Kit lenses included with the camera are notoriously known not to focus well in dark conditions.

I have the Nikon D60 - Ive taken sport/action pictures


The main difference between the two shooting conditions is the amount of light you have to work with. For the indoor action shots, set the ISO setting to the highest available through the menu (1600 ISO) to maximize the ability of the camera to work with the diminished light. The other (but more expensive) way to achieve better indoor shots is with the use of a "faster" lens, ie one with a lower maximum f stop number (f2.8 is faster than f3.5, for instance). Also ensure you are shooting with your lens at its widest f stop setting (lowest number).

Nikon D60 use of Display to take pictures rather than view finder


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...

Dust stuck under glass on the lcd screen of my d60


If you purchased your D60 new, you could sent it in to Nikon for cleaning but personally, I'd wait a while if it's not affecting the camera's functions. If you need warranty work within the first year, you can send the camera in for that work, and they'll clean under the LCD while servicing the camera.
