Problem cant view in lcd while taking picture

    LCD functions properly until it is rotated 180 degrees and inserted into the back of the camera (so that you can view it like conventional LCD), then the LCD turns off. This is a problem because the LCD must be configured in this position to use with underwater housing.

This is a known issue for Canon. Please send the camera to the Canon repair facility in New Jersey to have the CCD imager replaced. There is no cost to repair the camera due to the widespread nature of this problem. Good luck my friend! Joe Weibel (customelectronics.org)

SOURCE: LCD Screen does not work properly

Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing pictures taken or menu operations. You cannot preview a shot on screen before it is taken with the camera.

By coincidence, Canon just repaired and returned my niece's Powershot A60 just this week. They did a great job repairing, but also cleaned it. Not only does it operate as if new, but swear it also looks brand new now.

How do i view pictures while i am taking them on the lcd screen

You can't. The D40 works as SLRs have worked for the last 50 years. It doesn't have a Live View mode, instead it shows you an image through the viewfinder.

I see nothing in the Viewfinder...

The camera has a mirror lock up feature for cleaning the CCD sensor. You may have engaged it. Check your manual about this function

No picture on my LCD

When in the taking mode- this SLR will not show an image as other cameras- because the mirror is down for the reflex view finder- this is normal for this type of camera although I understand there is a make/model that gets around this - but it is not the E-v 500 just like my E-v 300
