The D40 does not have the LiveView capability. It works as SLRs have worked for half a century, showing the image through the lens via a viewfinder. This has changed in the last two or three years, now the only current dSLR in Nikon's lineup without LiveView is the D3000.

Sorry that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but I can't tell you how to do something the camera simply cannot do.

How do I display a grid in the viewfinder when taking pictures?


Are you sure you saw this in your D40x?
I know this is in my camera under personal settings and called raster in viewfinder. But I can't find anything in the D40 or D40x manual.

I have a nikon d 40 and was wondering if the display screen can be used to preview the shot instead of using the eye piece .


The Nikon D40 is not equipped with the Live View feature which allows the user to use the camera's LCD to preview the shot. You can only use the viewfinder eye piece.

No display on the LCD viewfinder when taking pictures. It only works to review pictures/videos.


There's nothing wrong with your camera. The D40 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, using a mirror to project the image through the viewfinder. The live view feature is a relatively recent development among dSLRs, previously available only on point&shoot cameras.

Why wont the image come up on my LCD on the D40 when i turn on the camera


Because it's not supposed to. The LCD on the D40 is for menus, shooting info, and image review. It takes pictures the same way SLRs have done for half a century, allowing you to view and frame through the viewfinder. Only more recent dSLRs (and not all of them) have the Live View feature allowing you to use the LCD instead of the viewfinder.

The D40 works the same way SLRs have worked for the past half century. Only recently have dSLRs acquired a "Live-View" capability, where you see the image on the LCD monitor instead of through the viewfinder.

I realize this probably wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way it is.

How do i get the image that i see through the viewfinder,onto the lcd screen instead on my nikon d40


Sounds like you're looking for a feature called "live view". I don't believe the D40 has that feature.

How do i view pictures while i am taking them on the lcd screen


You can't. The D40 works as SLRs have worked for the last 50 years. It doesn't have a Live View mode, instead it shows you an image through the viewfinder.

I see nothing in the Viewfinder...


The camera has a mirror lock up feature for cleaning the CCD sensor. You may have engaged it. Check your manual about this function
