Because your camera is a digital SLR you cannot ( physically impossible ) preview 'live' images prior to the shutter being released . The reason is that the device generating the image viz. CCD sensor is behind a CLOSED shutter so it 'sees ' nothing and hence thre is no picture available to be displayed on the monitor. It is only when you activate the shutter that the CCD sensor can come on line and capture/generate an image which is available always only after you shoot.

With the power off, hold the camera in your palm and smack the front of the camera on your leg or arm. You might have to smack it a few time to get it to work. It has to do with the camera CDD lense (shuttle) being stuck. By smacking it around, it will free up the lense. Being extra gentle with it though. It worked for me. Hope this help.

SOURCE: Nikon D50 lcd problem
I'm sure that the auction/sale has ended for this, but I'll go ahead and answer it. Yes, it could be a simple loose/broken cable. But when it comes to cameras, is that a good thing? Something had to jar that cable. Nikon builds are strong, possibly the strongest. The guy who owns that camera was probably very rough with it, and therefore MUCH more could possibly be wrong it (fractures, scratches, etc.)
I bought my d50 used, but the guy I bought it from was smart enough to take SEVERAL pictures, including that of the glass, the mirror, display, everything. I had the option of buying a d50 for $150, and all it had wrong with it was a crack going along the outside of the analog lcd and down part of the camera. Problem was, how hard did he drop it? He might have even knocked the internals around!
Save yourself headaches, and most probably expensive future investments, and be sure what you're buying is in mint condition (body scratches and general wear on rubber grips, etc. aside). Most people who own SLRs (with exceptions to some professionals) cradle their cameras like it's their baby.

Testimonial: "great practical solution! thanks!"
Ok, all you need to do is:
1.Hold the camera normally like you would take a picture.
2.Turn it on and review a picture.
3. While looking at a picture, take your index (pointer) finger and rotate the front "wheel" right under the shutter release button. This switches the viewing mode, and should solve your problem.

You have a short in your button board in your camera or a bad button board. Send into Nikon to repair. You can also look on Ebay for the part if your technical skills are up to self repair.
