By default the D90 is set to use the viewfinder for framing and taking pictures. If you wish to disable that and use the monitor, press the "LV" button on the back just above the multiselector.

I have a new (Dec., 2009) D90. This morning I discovered that I had an "Err" message and a "CHA" message. Both were on the LCD panel on the top of the camera. I was not able to turn the camera off, and the only way to turn it off was to take out the battery. Upon reinserting the battery, everything appeared normal, but after taking one shot the problem reappeared.

The Nikon user manual says on Page 256 that the ERR message indicates a camera malfunction and to clear it, you must release the shutter. \012\012 I have found on my D-90 that I can usually release the shutter by turning the camera off and ba ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens
