Question about Nikon D40x Digital Camera

Blackout on LCD Image Playback

Thisd has just begun happening. I take photos with my Nikon D40X. When I go to review them via the LCD, the light and lighter areas of each image are now blinking on-and-off as a black background. I have not been able to find anything in the manual or on the CD pertaining to this particular issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It baffled me too, at first. What has happened is that the navigation dial has been (probably) accidently pressed, thus putting the display in "highlight" mode. When it is doing the blinky thing, press the down arrow to scroll thru the playback modes. A couple of presses and you'll be back to normal. This will show you the super light areas of an image, so it can be useful to avoid loss of detail in highlighted areas, but it sure looks wierd at first.

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.

I took pictures from my nikon d40x but all photos are displayed black in lcd. Would you know how to fix this error?


If your LCD screen works normally as a viewfinder and lets you review photos then your shutter is likely stuck in the closed position. If the display is black in all modes your LCD display is bad. Unfortunately, there is no safe DIY fix for either problem. The camera will require professional repair.

Review isn't working


Hi,
This is not a problem. This is a function that shows you the "burn" area at the photo. If you wishes to drop it just rotate the command dial at rear of the camera. You can change the option by changing the menu as shown at page 75 in the manual.

I have a Nikon D40X and When I review my pictures and screen comes on over my photo review that says info about the camera. How can I get that off?


when that information is overlayed on the playback screen, press the up or down arrow on the navigation dial until it disappears. There are a couple of different screens full of information you might see before it is completely gone.

Nikon d40x LCD screen stopped working


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.

You've just turned on the "highlights" option in image review. Press the up arrow on the d-pad to get back to the normal setting.
