Hey sbrittannia,
This camera does not have what is called live preview where you can see what you're shooting and compose the image on the LCD screen. What it does have is image review which should display the image just taken on the LCD screen for about 2 seconds. If your camera is not doing this it means image review has been turned off. You can turn image review on or off under custom setting 6 which is described on page 88 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!

Sound levels on video go up and down


This is not at random, The camera wants to keep sound during the whole recording on the same level. so when it is getting quiet, the gain is automatically raised. When the sounds becomes to loud the gain is lowered. So only when the sound level while you are shooting stays the same, you won't have this issue.

Nikon d50 monitor does not work during photo shooting, must use view finder


This is completely normal. The monitor is used for setting menu items, displaying shooting info, and reviewing images. Like SLR have functioned for over fifty years, you take pictures by composing and framing through the viewfinder. Only the most recent dSLRs have the Live View capability which allows you to use the monitor like a point&shoot camera.

I have a nikon d3000. At first I was able to look through the LCD monitor and see what I was going to shoot, but now it just stays a black screen.


The Nikon D3000 does not have a Live View mode that allows you to see what you're going to shoot in the LCD screen. If you thought you saw something, my best guess is that you were mistaken.

Sony w200(12.1MP) Shoot Mode no display


I was having the same problem earlier and I showed my camera to my father and he fixed it! What you need to do is press the center button (that usually toggles between viewfinder mode and LCD mode) and when the display is on (mine would come on for a second or two and then go black) press the up arrow (the display button). Now the display stays on during shooting mode! This fixed the problem for me and I hope it helps you out too!

Monitor does not stay on


The LCD monitor screen at the back of the camera does not display a live picture like many point-n-shoot digitals. It only displays after the pic is taken. Use the LCD on the top cover to check your settings. Please leave feedback if this helps.

  • The digital zoom cannot be used when the LCD monitor is off.
note_icon_a70.gif
  • images become coarser the more they are digitally zoomed.
  • Since camera shake may become a factor when using the digital zoom, the use of a tripod is recommended.

IF this fails, your camera is in need of service.
