Nikons, Canons and other digital cameras were made with Sony ccd or sensor. These had problems. Canon and Nikon have been good to repair most of the cameras I sent with the problem.
If sand, water, or other problems are detected such as a hard impact, they will not cover it.
Here is the link to Nikon's advisory.
http://www.nikonusa.com/email_images/nikonusa/service_advisory/coolpix.html
If you can see the menu, and no picture in record modes, then the ccd is probably the problem.
For other cameras search on the Internet with key words like the brand of the camera and include "ccd advisory".

EOS400D digital, I cant see the subject through the lens, I have taken the lens cover off


Hi Carol,
There are two things that I can think of which will prevent you from sighting through the view finder.
1. When your camera is switched on for live-view shooting mode or vice versa. That is, you can only see the subject in the LCD screen or through the view finder one at a time.
2. If you are using the LCD screen to frame your subject and you encounter this problem, it is most likely caused by the settings of the camera. Try increasing the ISO to around 400 or above, reduce the shutter speed to anything below 1/20 and the aperture to around F:5.6 or less (that depends on your lens.
Hope you resolve the problem by now but if you haven't try those tips.
Regards.

I don't think anything is wrong with your camera. Just check the Manual.
Your camera has a view finder, to make pictures. Yes the little screen on the top left (Backside) As an extra the camera has live view, that can be switched on and off. because the live view consumes lots of power, it is advised to use the view finder. If you want to switch it on, you can do so in the settings menu. There go to the live view en switch it on.

I cant see through the Viewfinder its just all black but i can see on the led screen and i can switch the display to he view finder and see it fine , so is the viewfinder broken ?


It is not likely the view finder is broken, because it is deep inside the camera. There can be many reasons why you can't use it as it should. Did you know you can adjust the brightness of the viewfinder and the display separately? It is in the manual page 31. And if you are with the manual (still online available) have a look on page 16 too.
When the camera does not give the image to the view finder, it also could be an electronic problem, because switching in the camera goes along electronic paths.

I have a fugi fine pix, when using it in bright sun light i cant see anything


Geofchaam,
You could be experiencing one of two issues:
1) You are having a difficulty viewing the image on the back of the camera (not the view finder). This is common on cameras out in the sun, try cupping your spare hand over the screen to cast a shadow on the screen.
2) You cannot view anything in the view finder. Since the view finder has its own tiny LCD display inside of it, it is displaying what image the camera will take if you press the shutter release. I would double check to see if the camera is set correctly for shooting in bright sunlight (check your owners manual, or set the camera to Automatic), and if there is a difference between what you're seeing in the viewfinder, and what images the camera is taking, consider calling Fuji, as it sounds like a hardware issue.

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

Nikon coolpix 5700


at the back of the camera next to the view finder (bottom right hand corner) is a button and icon marked SEL. pressing this button toggles the lens image from the view finder to the lcd screen and back again. IF neither view is available then I suspect your camera needs some TLC at a repair shop. hope this helps.
