The D40x works as SLRs have worked for half a century. You have to compose the picture through the viewfinder. The LCD screen is for menus, settings, and reviewing pictures after they've been taken. The LiveView capability allowing you to compose on the screen is a relatively new development, which Nikon introduced into their cameras with the D3 and D300, introduced years after the D40x.
Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way the D40x works.
If you can see the taken image in the monitor- fully lit- then the monitor is not faulty. However you cannot get Menu's is that right? Ths then would be a problem for the manufacturers support web site. If the camera is no longer in Warranty my guess is that it would be cheaper or nearly so simply to replace it than a repair
Select play back menu and select print time stamp. For your Knowledge,do you like or not All photographs taken with this camera having a data file with it, called meta data. All these file in formation can be viewed in clicking file info in photoshop. The Metadata tags defined in the Exif standard cover a broad spectrum:
Digital cameras will record the current date and time in hour, minute,seconds and save this in the metadata.
Have you tried the 'Menu' button? If you've turned off 'Review' in the settings menu, the screen doesn't show anything after you take a picture. If the screen doesn't come on when you push the 'Menu' button with a charged battery installed, your camera will need to be repaired.
