Poolseman is correct that most DSLR cameras do not feature a 'live view' on the lcd. Light does not hit the sensor until you release the shutter and take an exposure. When you remove the lens you will see a mirror which relects light up through the pentaprism (an interesting piece of glass that flips and reverses the image and sends it out through the viewfinder for you to see). Most of the sound you hear when shooting is that mirror snapping up and out of the way to reveal light to the sensor (CCD in your case). If you took a long exposure like 10seconds, you cannont see through the viewfinder because the mirror is not reflecting. All SLRs work this way. However, a few of the latest Canon SLRs from this year DO support a live view of whats in front of the lens. I'm not aware of any other bodies available that can do this, but if Canon is doing it, its possible, and probably will turn up in other brands later this year or next year. If you're trying to take a shot above your head etc and cannot see what you are doing, I submit that practice will tell you how much area the lens is getting and what angle to estimate. In a case like this the lcd might not help much anyway since they do not view well at extreme angles. Hope this helps...

If no image in viewfinder then mirror is in lock up position ( take lens off and inspect. Put fully charged battery in and see if the camera will unlock ). If no image on LCD screen then either shutter is not working or CCD sensor is faulty or CF card is not storing images ( card faulty or camera faulty ). In any case camera should probably go to Nikon.

    Ok then we are dealing with a misunderstanding because with a digital SLR like Nikon D 70 you can not preview images prior to taking a shot . This is how they are designed.

    Why no image preview on LCD monitor with digital SLRs ? The sensor ( CCD or Cmos ) is behind a closed shutter and 'sees' nothing and so no image is available to be displayed on the monitor. It is only when you take a shot i.e. shutter opens that the sensor generates image and this is why you can only review but not preview images this these cameras.

By using an external monitor, you have shown that the computer/video adapter is fine.
I'm wondering if you have told the computer to send the image to the LCD screen--using the Fn key and the special function key combo that directs the image to the LDC, the external monitor, or both.

It could also be the connection of the LCD monitor to the motherboard. You would do well to check that connection.

This is likely the LCD panel itself - you are describing a left/right image error that can be only created by the left/right division by the LCD driver wrapped around the outside of the LCD panel.
If your monitor uses a separate circuit board to drive the LCD, it could be this driver board.
Either way, it will require an LCD panel - $$$
