"Can't get composing screen on the folding monitor"
I have a Nikon D-5100 I am trying to learn to use properly. I have been trying to set it up but after trying to set the proper menues, I have hit a snag. I have lost the ability to see what the lens sees on the monitor it was there but after trying to properly set menue choices it just doesn't have the images for composeing a shot. The eye level finder works perfectly but not the monitor. I can get views of pictures showing exposure profiles, enlargements, etc. I have tried and tried to restore the image during composing but no luck. I am pretty sure it is something simple but what??? Can anyone help me? Bob
