Question about Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
I've had my camera for a year now and all of a sudden I can't take a picture through my LCD display screen however it works when I use the menu and to view other pictures. Any ideas what setting got messed with and how to fix this??? Thank you!
According to Nikon, that was not possible. The D40 doesn't have 'Liveview' like the smaller compact cameras. You would always have to use the viewfinder for taking pictures. Even in the TV ads, everyone used the viewfinder as they took turns using the camera.

The display being white can be due to failure
of the LCD or the CCD which is the optical sensor of the camera. So to confirm
check the older picture to be seen on the display. Confirm this by checking the
card on your PC. If the images/picture is seen to be of good quality, then the
LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board.
However if the older images are seen well
then the LCD is working correctly and the fault can be failure of the CCD-
charge coupled device in the camera. If you have accidently exposed the camera
directly to high intensity light / sunlight, then it is possible that it is
damaged. Remove the battery and keep the camera aside to reset and try as a
last resort. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked
at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.
