Re: 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.

There is a line appearing from the center of the view finder till the end. This comes on only when the camera is switched on

if the line came in photos when you seen them from PC then its a Camera CCD fault, Or If the photo clear in PC view then its a LCD fault.

LCD screen is black when in photo-taking mode


try chaning the menu options to LCD instead of View finder and things should get back to normal

if you are not too keen about the setting then you can just reset the settings to factory defaults and this should work again

hope this helped
pls rate the solution, thanks

Cant view photos on the big screen of my camera

I think you must have pressed the EVF/LCD button which changes the review area to inside the tiny view finder.. the EVF/LCD button is found on the back of the camera at the top left hand corner.. it is a little silver button. Hope that helps.. :)

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.

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.
