Having problems with your Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens ?

Monitor does not stay on

\015 I have set the monitor to turn off after one minute of inactivity, so it should turn on with the camera, but the monitor only turns on for the 3 seconds of image review after taking a picture.\015\012\015\012I don't mind using the viewfinder, but seeing what my settings are onscreen is useful.\015

Answers :

The LCD monitor screen at the back of the camera does not display a live picture like many point-n-shoot digitals. It only displays after the pic is taken. Use the LCD on the top cover to check your settings. Please leave feedback if this helps.
