Because this camera does not have a Live Viewing option like all smaller point and shoot cameras have. To give you a live view on the LCD would require the shutter to be open constantly. Only some DSLR cameras offer this function which requires a second sensor in the camera. You are best using the manual viewfinder anyway as it will result in better pictures and you can determine focus better too.

Nikon D80 how do I get the screen on the back switched on and showing the photos I take ?


You don't. The screen on the back is for menu settings, shooting information, and reviewing pictures you've already taken. The ability to see the scene before taking pictures was introduced with its successor, the D90. With the D80 you need to use the viewfinder to compose and frame your pictures.

Either the TCON board or the LCD panel has failed. Start by replacing the TCON board. If the problem persists, the panel is bad and the cost to replace it would be too high.

I have a 65731 HD DLP and when I turn it on and start watching a light scene it works great... until a show has a dark scene, like rain or low lighted scene. it appers to look blue or red shadows on...


hi,
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} The most common problem for this complaint is contaminated coolant for the picture tubes. If you look directly into the three picture tubes you will probably see a haze in the blue one. This is fairly common but requires a knowledgeable service man to take care of.

I am unable to see what I am taking a picture of.


Think that you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD display on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time.

My flash bulb doesn't work, picture are dark


Do you have it turned off? Is there a picture of a lightning bolt with a line through it? If so, press the button with the lightning bolt until the screen shows a lightning bolt and an "a". Also, do you have the camera set on a scene mode such as night? The flash won't go off in some scene modes.

Battery level


As Suzaku explained:
A battery icon will show up on the LCD screen of your camera when it is already low and needs recharging. It can be found at the lower right side of your LCD screen. The ready light of your camera will also blink red and your camera will turn off if the battery is exhausted.
NOTE:
The icon will not appear if the batery is sufficient and there is no TECH way of making the icon show until the batt needs charging.

LCD screen stopped working


Does the camera take good pictures? Have you tried downloading them into a PC? If the pictures look OK on the PC but not on your camera's LCD screen, then the LCD screen is most likely defective.

Please read this article that I wrote regarding LCD screen replacement.
