Sounds like you're looking for a feature called "live view". I don't believe the D40 has that feature.

I bought a replacement LCD screen for my Nikon S3000 camera, but when I remove the back case, the connector for the LCD is under the silver plate. I can't figure out how to get the plate off to reach the connector so I can install the new LCD. I've removed screws, but it still lifts only halfway. Is there some kind of trick I'm not seeing to get this thing open?

Taking pics I just got a Nikon D40 camera and I can't seem to figure out how to view on the screen what I'm looking at when I'm trying to take a picture. I can view them in play mode after the fact, but isn't there a way to see on the screen instead of having to look through the little window to see what I'm shooting? Thanks in advance for any help!!!

DC-3185 Frozen A really odd problem is my son's DC3185 is frozen with a live LCD and the Flash in auto mode except the flash icon "flashes" I see a good LCD image of what I am looking at but can not take a picture. The led light is also red. I have installed new batteries and it didn't help. I inserted a flash card and the screen indicated the Flash icon but the flash keeps flashing on and off and the red led light stays on.

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise. If i take a picture using the manual view finder, all i get is a completely black photograph. Occasionally, i see a glitter or two on the screen which is black and white (kind of like an unsynced TV image), but then it disappears pretty quickly
