Answers :

You most likely were shooting in a mode that caused your exposure to over-expose your image. Try "Auto" for starters. Once you are comfortable, learn to set "A" or "S" to control your shots as "you" want them. be sure to know how the camera is metering the shots too. All of this is explained in the manual.

Do we have option to take pics through LCD in Nikon D40X?

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.

Seems like your problem on greyish/blurry viewfinder is caused by the camera getting water logged. Get your cam cleaned by Nikon.\015\012\015\012The flashing red light usually happens if you have this indicator set in the camera. This m ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
