Re: LCD Monitor on and the electronic viewfinder

If you turn on the back LCD, the electronic viewfinder will remain on while in a shooting mode. There is no setting on the camera to use only the back LCD monitor while shooting. If you playback images in the Play mode, only the LCD monitor will turn on. However, if you press the Monitor button while in the Play mode, than the back LCD monitor will turn off. The image will display only in the viewfinder LCD.

I have a red line through my photos.


Answer ID 16497 Why do I sometimes see a faint vertical line in my viewfinder? Why do I sometimes see a faint vertical line in my viewfinder? --> With some DSLR cameras, a normally clear LCD screen is used to display Auto Focus area brackets in the viewfinder. When power is supplied to the screen, you may sometimes see a faint vertical line appear in your viewfinder. This is perfectly normal and is just part of the finely etched circuitry used to power and illuminate the liquid crystal segments of the AF area brackets.

Monitor stays black


You may have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the LCD screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To try turning the screen back on, press the DISP button once.

When switched on, display reads "In synchronized monitor mode"


Cycled through display options, still couldn't get viewfinder image. Checked images already on card, and they showed OK, so screen operating properly. Went back to viewfinder mode, got lots of horizontal lines across screen. Realised I could do no more, so took camera to shop it was bought from, who checked it and said it had an electronic problem that needed professional repair facility, so camera has gone for an estimate of repair cost.

Nikon Coolpix 8800 - viewing photo when using viewfinder


Hi there, thanks for coming to FixYa. My name is Rob and I can help you with that.

Take a look at the back of your camera. Just above the display screen, you can see a button that has something that looks like this |O| The button has a horizontal oval inbetween two vertical lines. Press that button when the camera is on and you will see what the camera sees in the monitor. If you press it again, it will revert back to the electronic viewfinder. If it is set to monitor, then it will always show on the monitor until you hit the button to change it.

That will solve your problem. I would appreciate a fixya rating. If you have anymore questions, or need more help, let me know in a comment.

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.
