I am trying to setup the camera so that when I take a picture, the image will be displayed on the LCD along with the black and white histogram (not RGB). Then on the same screen be able to adjust the shutter speed and the f stop and see the histogram results, so that I can remove the BLINKIES. I know I can use the overview, and that will display the histogram, but then I have to toggle back and forth to see the histogram results. I have to take another picture in order to see the results. I may be wrong, but I thought I had it set one time to do that , but lost the mothod of doing it.

I too have the D5000, To use the feature i think you are talking about, Press the play button to display the picture then press the up arrow this then displays a small picture with histogram and shooting information underneath, pushing up again displays a small picture with the RGB histogram and limited shooting information. This setting then becomes the default until you arrow up or down.
