    My D40 is less than 6 months old. It started doing this on the day of my daughter's wedding (!). Had to have it factory serviced. Now it's doing it again, and Nikon is telling me there's nothing wrong.

It is the highlight warning. When viewing the photos, simply click the up button to scroll to a different view.

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.

Black flashing in bright areas of image when viewing


This is a tool to tell you where your photo is under or overexposed. If you use the up/down button to scroll through the display options (file info, shutter speed, filename...etc) will take you to the view where the highlights are shadowed or whited out. One of the views has no data or highlighting. Just leave the view there.

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.
