Having problems with your Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera ?

Can't see out of D60 viewfinder

\015 I was playing around with my new D60, trying to set to continuous shooting mode, changed a couple things (don't even remember what). And now I can't see anything out of the viewfinder. When I press the button to take pictures, it won't take them. i tried re-setting the camera, removing the battery and switching lenses. Did I break my camera or do I just need to change a setting? Help!\015

The viewfinder of my Nikon D80 is grayish and blurry when it's off. I cant see a thing when I tried to use my 18-135 mm lens. I don't have a battery to reset it to its factory default settings.

Nikon D80. It worked fine until recently (maybe after I took pictures during whale-watching in a heavy rain and camera got wet). Now the view in the viewfinder is kind of greyish and blurry. Focus area brackets in the viewfinder are now always visible and white. And when I half-press the shutter button the whole viewfinder flashes in red color. Basically, the camera still works and takes pictures, but it is hard to see through the viewfinder and it behaves very strangely.
