Picture does not appear on the monitor, I must look through the view finder to see what I,m pointing at to photograph


The D40x operates as SLRs have operated for half a century, offering you an optical viewfinder with which to frame and compose your picture. The LCD is for menus, shooting information, and reviewing.

Nikon introduced the live view feature, which allows you to hold your camera so it wobbles at arms' length, with the D3 and D300, released half a year after the D40x.

While almost all current DSLRs have this capability, it was not so common five years ago when the D40x was introduced.

Canon eos rebel xsi screen is black when taking a picture but shows picture afterwards..Menu works also so screen works but just black when trying to take a pic..


Set the shooting mode to a Creative Zone mode. Press MENU to enter the menu. Under the Setup tab, select [Live View function settings] then press SET. Select [Live View shoot] and press SET. Select [Enable] and press SET. Press MENU to exit the menu. Press SET. The image should now appear on the LCD instead of through the viewfinder.

Refer to "Live View Shooting," Chapter 5 in the manual for more details and the limitations of the LiveView mode.

How to use the monitor as a view finder on nikon d40


The Nikon D40 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, providing a viewfinder for composition and framing. The monitor in the back is for menu settings, shooting parameters, and picture review. Only more recent dSLRs (in Nikon's case, starting with the D3 and D300) provide the LiveView capability.

Nikon d50 monitor does not work during photo shooting, must use view finder


This is completely normal. The monitor is used for setting menu items, displaying shooting info, and reviewing images. Like SLR have functioned for over fifty years, you take pictures by composing and framing through the viewfinder. Only the most recent dSLRs have the Live View capability which allows you to use the monitor like a point&shoot camera.

The viewing screen on the back is blank white.


Somkewhere after submitting the problem, I read a blog that instructed to press all five of the small buttons in the circle on the back while turning on the power. I took me twice and regained the viewfinder. They also had written that it may take a few times.

I have a new Canon 40D. I just want to know how to turn off the view finder and just shoot pics through the LCD monitor?


Press the menu button, then scroll to the second wrench-symbol, then scroll to "Live View function settings" and press the SET-button. Then scroll to "Live View shoot" and press SET, then scroll to enable, and press SET again. Exit the menu by pressing the menu button twice.
Now you can turn on the live view by pressing the SET-button.
Hope this helps,  /Chris

the fix should be in the set-up menu. Look through for "post-view", which should control whether the image stays on the LCD after you shoot, and for how long.

What is the solution ? It is the same when it's in night-shot or night-framing.
