Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Image on LCD When Trying to View Photos

I must've hit something, and when I try to look at the photos I just took on the LCD screen, there is a grey area in the middle that has this info: Camera: Nikon D40 Metering: Matrix Shutter: 1/125 Aperture: F5-6 Exposure Mode: Auto Exp +/-: 0.0 Focal Length: 55mm Flash mode: (nothing there)
How can I get this to disappear? I pressed everything I can, went into the menu, but I wasn't sure what I was or was not selecting in the "Info Display Format" which I'm not even sure is the right area to be messing around in.
I'd so appreciate this help!

Why not try a reset? Go into the setup menu and find "reset" and follow the on-screen instructions.

No picture on screen when switched on


You have not given enough information. Are you trying to see
recorded photos or expecting to see the image from the lens?
You normally have an option to either use the view finder OR the
LCD display. It usually defaults to the view finder and you must activate the LCD with a button.

File error Sony Cybershot DSC-W120


The LCD screen may display a FILE ERROR message when trying to view a still image on the Camera if the image was rotated, modified and overwritten using editing software on a Computer.

To play images you have taken on the Camera, it is recommended that you do not make any changes to the original image files.

It seems that the images are rotated or modified in the Computer.

When looking back at photos taken, the camera freezes and flashes up 'file error'. I have tried browsing slowly as well as quickly and it still happens, it is really infuriating!

LCD on - view image prior to taking photo


The feature you are referring to is called "Live View mode".

This is NOT available on the Nikon D80, and was only introduced on the D90, which is available now.

Live View mode allows you to use the LCD screen as your view finder instead of using the eyepiece, but unfortunately, this feature is not available in your model.

D70s lcd screen is black


The D70S is a SLR (single lens reflex). You cannot use the LCD for taking pictures like the small compact digital cameras. There is no way for the CCD sensor to have any image prior to taking since it is behind the mirror and the shutter is closed.

Problem with my D50 reading my card

File error


I have seen this problem with generic SD memory cards so it could be a faulty memory stick.  Try to get a replacement.  If you want to try to recover the pictures you have taken, I suggest Zero Assumption Recovery (Google for it). Check to see if it is compatible with your camera before downloading.

DirectCD and cd1000 and File Error viewing on cd1000


I've had some errors on my discs. What I've found is after you finalize them, if there is still room on the disc you can initialize then and use the empty space still on them. This can also fix some error, and I don't know why.
