LCD screen won't open

I was using the camera and it was functioning properly. I viewed the pictures I had just taken and wanted to continue taking pictures. I took the next couple of pictures using the viewfinder, due to some glare. When I went to review those pictures the LCD screen would not open. I was able to continue taking pictures and I was able to review the pictures I had taken through the viewfinder, a pain. I checked my owners manual but found no help. thanks

Re: LCD screen won't open

I have solved the problem with an empiricist method:
I take off the battery.
I unscrew all the visible screw ( be careful to the varius size and position)
I take away the back part ( the one with "10X" printed)
I separate of little millimeters the two side of the boby, but i don't try to completely open the machine.
I insert the 4 battery an try to turn on .
Without a logic explanation the lcd open again .
Peraphs the 2,3 millimeters of space let the pastic cover to be unlocked.
I screw all the screw and the machine is all right again!
I know i'm very lucky!

p.s. : sorry for my "italian" english

How do i turn on my d40 lcd screen

What do you want to see on it?

Press the Menu button to see the menu.
Press the Info button to see the shooting info screen.
Press the Playback button to review the pictures you've already taken.

If you want to use the LCD screen for shooting, then you're out of luck. The D40 does not have the Live View capability. The camera is designed to function as SLRs have for the last half century: you frame the picture through the viewfinder. I realize this isn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way the camera works.

LCD monitor works to display picture already taken and the menu display, but with not display live images. Must use the view finder. Menu does not have a "live view"

There is no function to do this on the EOS 400D. Don't forget the camera is an SLR and still has to open and close a shutter to take a picture. The image is then converted using a CCD instead of exposed on film. I find with my 20D I just take loads of pictures and review them and then delete the ones that I don't want. This is the beauty of the digital age.

Lcd screen shows settings for camera not the image of what it is

EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
EOS 400D/Rebel XTi doesn't have live view function, so you cannot see the picture you are taking.

New EOS XSi LCD don't work

You have to set the camera to "Live View" mode. Check your manual for settings.
BTW, it's usually a bad idea to use Live View mode unless the camera is on a tripod. With Live View you have to hold the camera out in front of you and it's much less steady.

LCD Screen does not work properly

Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing pictures taken or menu operations. You cannot preview a shot on screen before it is taken with the camera.

I see nothing in the Viewfinder...

The camera has a mirror lock up feature for cleaning the CCD sensor. You may have engaged it. Check your manual about this function

LCD Display

If you mean you see no picture on the lcd monitor before you take the picture and see it only after you have taken it than this is normal with digital SLRs. But if you mean you see nothing on the lcd monitor after you have taken a picture ( no playback ) then either the shutter is not working , or the CMOS sensor is not working or the camera is not communicating with CF card.
