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.

When in video recording mode LCD screen and viewfinder are black when the lens cap is off.

It could one of a few problems:

1. The viewfinder is pulled out and "PRIORITY" is set to "FINDER".

Push the viewfinder back in or set "PRIORITY" to "LCD".

2. The LCD monitor's brightness setting is too dark.

Adjust the brightness of the LCD monitor.

3. If the monitor is tilted upward 180 degrees, open the monitor fully.

The LCD monitor displays taken images but isn't operating as a viewfinder.

The XT does not have 'live view' - you can only use the LCD to view taken images

Whats the difference between Backlight inverter and LCD??http://www.fixya.com/PostQuestion.aspx?dm=1&ref=thask

Liquid Crystal Display commonly known as LCD is an
electronically modulated optical device made up of any number of pixels filled with crystal.. The one you called the screen.. facing you when you are in front of the lcd monitor
It needs light source for this to have display... the light source whose responsible for the image to be displayed is the backlight inverter.. Its in the form of a cold cathode lights...frequently located at the upper and lower back edge of the LCD screen..


Hope i clear things out for you...

Much appreciated if you rate this help..thanks..


LCDs therefore need a light source and are classified as "passive" displays
LCDs are more energy efficient, and offer safer disposal, than CRTs. Its low electrical power consumption enables it to be used in battery-powered electronic equipment. It is an electronically-modulated optical device made up of any number of pixels filled with liquid crystals and arrayed in front of a light source (backlight) or reflector to produce images in color or monochrome. The earliest discovery leading to the development of LCD technology, the discovery of liquid crystals, dates from 1888.[1] By 2008, worldwide sales of televisions with LCD screens had surpassed the sale of CRT units.

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.

In an effort to ensure customer satisfaction, Sony of Canada Ltd. has elected to offer, effective October 3, 2005, free out-of-warranty repair to owners of affected Sony digital camera, camcorder and PDA products that exhibit the aforementioned condition caused by the image sensor device.

Spots on my display

There's nothing wrong with your camcorder. Cystal-shaped spots, black spots, and bright spots of light (red, green, or blue) can appear on the LCD monitor for a variety of reasons. These spots are not being recorded on your tape. But if these are distracting your videotaping, consider taking a slightly different shooting angle and the spots should go away.
