The D60 doesn't have the LiveView capability to allow you to use the LCD screen to compose your pictures. If it did so in the past, there was something seriously wrong with the camera which apparently has fixed itself now. The D60 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, providing a viewfinder for this purpose.

How do you set the LCD screen to take pictures with a Nikon D60


The Nikon D-60 is not equipped with live-view, if that's what you mean.

Unable to see image on screen before taking picture only through viewfinder


That's the way this camera works. The D60 works as SLRs have worked for half a century. You view through the viewfinder, which views through the lens. The screen is for menus, setup, and image review, not for shooting. The LiveView feature, which turns your dSLR into a point&shoot camera, is a relatively new feature in dSLRs. Nikon introduced it into their lineup with the D3 and D300, and it took a while to trickle down to their entry-level dSLRs. While it's now in all their models, it's not in the three-year-old D60.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

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.

My Nikon D60 monitor is dark...no image preview, however, playback for viewing pictures taken works fine. I use the viewfinder for taking pictures, but wonder if I've done something to turn off the monitor...


No, you have done nothing wrong. The D60 does not have the preview function on the monitor like the compact digital cameras. Nikon gave that function a name. It is called 'Live View'. The newr models like the D90 do have that feature. You can read further about your D60 here: www.digitalcamera-hq.com

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 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...
