Nikon D60. When viewing pics I get a section of the display that flashes on and off. I have no idea what's happened and I can't get back to viewing pics without the annoying flashing, it flashes black and white.

You're seeing blown-out highlights. These are the portions of your picture that have been overexposed so much that they've gone pure white and lost all detail. This is generally considered a bad thing, and the camera is warning you so. Of course, the camera doesn't know what effect you're trying for.

In general, the proper fix is to reduce the exposure by using exposure compensation to bring back the details. This risks losing details in the shadows as they go pure black, but that's generally considered not as bad. After all, we don't really expect to see things in the dark.

That was the long answer. The short answer is: press up/down on the multiselector to cycle through the different views of your picture.

I have a Nikon D60 camera. Switched it on today and there is no image in the LED display when I try to take a picture, the screen is black.


That's normal for the D60. It works the same way SLRs have worked for half a century: you view and compose through the optical viewfinder, then snap the picture. The D60 lacks the Live View feature of more recent dSLRs; the LCD (not LED) display on the back is for menus, settings, and reviewing pictures after you've taken them. It is not for composing and framing your pictures.

That is a problem that has to do with the Flash...make sure your flash settings are not turned on. If the flash can't find an image...it rotates and usually never finds the image. It's reading in a Flash mode.

Hello i take a pic but the white section flashes black nikon d60


I'm going to assume you're talking about the picture review on the back display. If I'm wrong, please please let me know.

You're seeing the highlights. Those are the areas of the picture that are overexposed and thus have lost all detail. That's not necessarily an error, though often it is. The proper solution is to reduce the exposure and shoot again.

The quick solution is to press Up or Down on the multiselector while viewing the picture to change your view of the picture. The camera provides several different views, including Highlights, Histogram, and several screens of Image Data.

Nikon d60 does not allow me to view image whilst taking a picture


The D60 does not have a Live View capability. The monitor is used for shooting info, menus, and image reviews. It cannot be used to display the image while shooting. You must use the viewfinder for that, unless you connect the camera to a computer using the Camera Control Pro software from Nikon.

Nikon d60 - error. turn camera off and on again.


Locate the button behind the shutter release button with the green dot next to it. Locate the button at the back lower hand side of the D60 with the green dot next to it. Press both buttons at the same time.........This resets the D60 to its original settings and should resolve the problem.....

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...
