What you're describing is a feature called "live view" (or more accurately "live preview"). It enables the user to treat the LCD like a viewfinder to compose shots just like on any digital compact camera.

Although many newer digital SLR's now have live view, the D60 does not so you cannot achieve what you want. All that the LCD is for is to view photos already taken and to provide camera menus and information in all other modes. Composing the images before pressing the shutter is done solely via the optical viewfinder.

Graph screen showing over photo image when using view finder


You're seeing the histogram, which shows valuable information about your picture's exposure. While viewing, press up/down to cycle through the different views of the picture.

My Nikon D60 monitor is dark...no image preview, however, playback for viewing pictures taken works fine. I use the viewfinder for taking pictures, but wonder if I've done something to turn off the monitor...


No, you have done nothing wrong. The D60 does not have the preview function on the monitor like the compact digital cameras. Nikon gave that function a name. It is called 'Live View'. The newr models like the D90 do have that feature. You can read further about your D60 here: www.digitalcamera-hq.com

Sreen on back of camera doesn't show anything. We have to use view finder to aim camera. Any suggestions


You can't use the screen for framing/composition, the D60 does not have Live View.
Only D90 and D300 have it

I just bought a Nikon D60 on ebay,Theres a black dot in all pics


My guess is that you have a dust spot in the camera on the mirror. This is not a user fixable ptoblem unless you are very well versed on camera repair. I would take to a camera store and have them clean the mirror.

Nikon D60 use of Display to take pictures rather than view finder


The Nikon D60 does not have "live view" capability, so you'll need to use the viewfinder to frame you shots. If you need "live view" capability, consider purchasing the D80 or D90 instead with offer the feature...

Problem with Canon EOS D60 Digital Camera


You need to clean the gold contacts with a soft pencil eraser. Remove the lens, and clean the contacts on it. Then hold the camera so the lens opening is pointing down and clean the contacts on the camera. Ensure no debris gets into the camera body and none is left behind on the lens.
Put it all back together and you should be good to go.
