Easter Sunday afternoon my camera was heavily used. When I got home, I found that I was not getting a preview image before I pressed the "take picture" button. When I press the button the flash works and the picture is taken, then the "preview" image appears. I need to know how to restore the image preview before the picture is taken.

Re: Delayed preview image
Sounds like you accidentally pressed the DISP button on the back (it manually turns the LCD screen on and off to save batteries). Turn the camera on and press the DISP button once. Hopefully that should fix it.

did you save the pictures into the card and not the cameras memory?
If you plug the card into your pc with a card reader you can have a look inside and also there are file recovery programs available if the card has gotten corrupt but the pictures where saved in it so it can be saved. but if no pictures are saved into the card then tehre is noting to recover,
This means Exposure Simulation. It gives you an idea of the result you will get with your exposure settings on your preview lcd. More explanation can be found here:
Overlaying pictures, like almost all photo manipulations, is better done on a computer using "real" software rather than on a camera. You get much more control on a computer. However, the D40 does have a wide repertoire of photo manipulation capabilities.
In order to overlay images, you must be shooting in RAW (or RAW+JPEG). Select Image Overlay from the Retouch menu. A preview dialog will be displayed with Image 1 highlighted. Press OK to get a photo selection dialog. Use left/right to highlight the first picture in the overlay. (You can press and hold the Zoom button to see the selected photo fullscreen.) Press OK to select the image. Optimize exposure for the image by pressing up/down. Press left/right to highlight Image 2. Select the second image the same way. Press left/right to highlight the Preview column. Overlay will show you the result, allowing you to go back and change things if you wish. Save will save the overlaid photo.
The shadow in the lower portion of your camera is probably caused by the lens hood. The solution is simple: remove the lens hood whenever you're using the built-in flash.
It sounds like the images are corrupted. On many cameras, a camera-only preview is also stored alongside the image file, so the camera can quickly display the preview without having to spend time decoding the image file.
When you try to apply the zoom, the camera is actually trying to decode the image, which fails because it is corrupted.
This might be due to low battery (unlikely), or bad memory. You might try replacing your memory card.
Batch printing all images in camera memory while the camera's album generator feature is enabled, will cause such duplicate printing.
This is because the album generator creates two images in camera memory: the normal image and a preview image. Batch printing all images will result in the camera printing both the normal image and the preview image.
What you should do
- Use the camera's DPOF settings to specify the images you want to print. Using DPOF is very simple, and it eliminates the problem of double prints.
* See the User's Guide for details about DPOF image settings, specifying the number of copies, date stamping, etc.
- The album generation feature also has a delete function for deleting generated album data, so you could also delete the album before batch printing.
